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

New Crooks in stock ready for Christmas!!!

It’s that time of the year again when I have a few crooks and other sticks to sell. These sticks are hand made using the finest Welsh mountain ram horn and quality seasoned hazel shanks. These are some of the best I have seen in terms of the quality of the horn and the lovely mottled shanks that feature on so many of them.

As with any natural product some may show natural imperfections in the horn or wood but just add to the unique charm of these beautiful crooks. The red areas present in the horn on some of the crooks is called blushing and a sign of a ram that enjoyed a good fight!

All crooks 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 crooks to USA or Australia

Payment by BACS or a 3% charge can be added for Paypal transactions.
