New crooks ready for the spring time!

After selling out at Christmas I am pleased to say I have new crooks available. Just six horn crooks for now, 4 rams horn crooks and 2 buffalo crooks.

As always each crooks has its own brief description beneath it. All crooks can be shortened if needed and will come with a brass ferrule fitted to the bottom of the shank.  These are made from natural products so will have natural imperfections. All crooks are extremely strong and the horn ones are suitable to work with or just for an enjoyable Sunday walk in the hills.

UK postage £20.

All enquiries to lordscountrysticks@gmail.com

Thank you for looking,

New Rams Horn Stock September 2015 – this is it before Christmas!

Here we have 12 lovely crooks in Welsh mountain rams horn, buffalo horn and two stunningly fabulous Jacobs rams horn crooks. This is unfortunately all of the stock I can get before Christmas so once they are gone they are gone. 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.
