Red deer antler thumb sticks now available! Everyone seems to love an antler thumb stick!

I have a lovely selection of antler thumb sticks available this year – antler thumb sticks are very popular as they are hard wearing, forgiving, nice and tactile to hold and look pretty attractive too!  The antler comes from the red deer when the deers shed their antlers at the end of the winter in the Highlands of Scotland.

All sticks can be shortened at no extra cost before fitting a brass ferrule.

All enquiries to lordscountrysticks@gmail.com

 

The top 3 (A, B and C) are available linseed oiled and the bottom 3 (D, E and F) are varnished with 3 coats of yacht varnish. I will be applying more oil to these top three so will be a bit shinier if you order one.

Antler Thumb Stick A – A lightweight stick measuring approximately 53″ to the V capped with buffalo horn on one side with ox horn spacer on silver hazel shank – £55

Antler Thumb Stick B – A lovely looking antler thumb stick measuring approximately 53.5″ to the V capped with ox horn with a buffalo horn spacer on chocolate hazel shank – a real beauty – £65 SOLD JW

A trio of wooden crooks available for Christmas! (December 2018)

I have a trio of beautiful wooden crooks here ready for Christmas! All lovingly handmade and ready for the perfect country walk. Whilst the wooden crooks are strong I would not suggest wrestling a sheep with one and would recommend a rams horn crook for such purposes – see previous post!  As with all natural products there will be natural imperfections which do add to the charm.

All crooks will come fitted with a brass ferrule and ready to use. UK P&P is £20 for up to three sticks/crooks so why not treat your loved ones.

Payment by BACS please or a 3% charge can be added if you prefer to pay by Paypal.

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

Any questions please ask. All enquiries to lordscountrysticks@gmail.com
