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.

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.

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.

Shepherds Crooks For Sale – Christmas stock 2016 has arrived!!!

It’s that time of the year again when I get an influx of enquiries for stick and crooks for Christmas. Well, I’m pleased to say I have a great selection of crooks in rams horn, buffalo horn and lovely burr wood here for sale. As always each crooks has its own description beneath it. All sticks can be shortened if needed and will come with a brass ferrule fitted. These are natural products so will have natural imperfections. All crooks are extremely strong and the horn ones are suitable to work with. Personally I feel the wooden ones are too weak for catching sheep with and more suitable for leisurely countryside pursuits.

All UK postage is £20 for up to 3 sticks or you are welcome to collect from South Oxfordshire.
