Hand Carved Buffalo Horn Shepherds Crook with Curl Nose on Blackthorn Shaft
Hand Carved Buffalo Horn Shepherds Crook with Thistle Nose on Blackthorn Shaft
The superb Shepherds Crook features a hand carved Buffalo Horn handle with a curl nosele mounted on a beautiful long blackthorn shaft. This is a long stick that comes to around upper-abdomen height. This beautiful country walking stick is hand made by John Rennie of Torphicen, a prize winning stick maker of many years standing, who won seven 1st prizes at the Highland Show in 2014. The shaft is made from the traditional country wood, hazel, which is prized for its interesting sheen and colour and is left with its natural bark for that authentic country look. The handle is hand carved from Buffalo Horn a painstaking process which takes approximately 35 hours. As Rams Horn has become increasingly difficult to source, buffalo horn has become more popular. Although predominantly black when polished, you will often find white flecks or streaks, also smoky blues and greys will appear in some horns.
