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.

More Rams Horn crooks now available. This really is the last of the crooks before Christmas!!!

Due to popular demand and the fact the last lot of rams horn crooks sold so quickly I have managed to get another 11 together to sell before Christmas. This really is it now for 2015 stock and once these 11 are gone I will have no more rams horn crooks in stock before next Spring. These are some of the best I have had too making them all the better to give as a gift to you loved one or for yourself this Christmas.

All crooks below are made from Welsh Mountain Ram horn (except Crook DEC A)  and hazel shanks. The joint is held together with a piece of threaded bar  and 2 pack epoxy resin and are very strong indeed! The shanks take on different colour in the bark depending on where they have been grown. This is a handmade product so will have natural imperfections in the horn and wood but add to the character of the stick. All shanks are varnished to protect the wood from moisture and if looked after will last for years to come. All sizes are approximate to within 0.5″. All sticks can be shortened to length and will have a ferrule fitted before sending to you.

UK postage and packaging is just £15.00 for up to three sticks! Europe is £50. All prices are in GBP and to be paid by BACS  or cheque on request. Paypal is also acceptable with a 3% surcharge.

Now the exciting bit. Here are the crooks……
