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,

Mark

Latest stock just updated!

I have been very busy over the last few months making sticks for Christmas! Last year I sold several at local farmers markets and various craft markets in the South Oxfordshire area. With lots of encouragement  from family, friends and customers I have made several more this year in between getting married and running my successful photography business (www.marklordphotography.com) These sticks are all handmade by myself with a few supplied to me from other stick makers, mainly the rams horn sticks. Sticks make great gifts for the country lover in your life. Please have a look at my stock above or by clicking here

Walnut leg cleek

I was very pleased with this walnut leg cleek as its one of the first I made to a good standard.  I bought a blank walnut head from my supplier which was roughly shaped and needed several hours of sanding and finishing with boiled linseed oil. I was so please with the stick I did not want to get rid of it. However its still in the family as my future mother in law is the proud owner of it and its enjoying a life walking the hills of Wiltshire!
