All sticks are made from natural products and will show slight imperfections adding to their charm and individuality.

All sticks can be shortened and once sold will be fitted with a brass ferrule before shipping. UK postage and packaging is £20 and Europe £50 – I do not send to USA or Australia

Payment by cash, BACS or cheque.

I am based in South Oxfordshire and welcome enquiries by appointment only.

All crooks have been expertly made by an experienced stick maker and if looked after will last for several years to come. As with any handmade and natural products they will have blemishes and marks expected from horn and wood. The pinky red areas on the rams horn is called ‘blushing’ from where the ram has been fighting! These are some of the best crooks you will find in the country so treat yourself or a loved one now for that perfect country companion!

All sticks sent to UK addresses will be sent 48 hour Parcel Force for £15. Up to 3 sticks will only be £15 UK P+P.  Payment by BACS to my account or request or by Paypal with a 3% surcharge.
