Evenly prepared, sanded finished in Water Buffalo horn. Conically drilled at 11 degrees. No string groove - cut your own to suit required angle. Generally 1/2" across the open end.
Large stock. Sold in pairs!!!!! Excellent trade volume discounts!!!
Where you require nock "blanks" with good, even, conical shape - one piece to each nock, then these are probably your best option. We often get orders for smaller numbers of nock blanks, so now sold in these smaller paired lots to accomodate.
If you are manufacturing bows and need greater volume of material we suggest you acquire Craft Grade Buffalo horn tips ( listed below ). Otherwise call us and discuss - Thanks.
Solid Water Buffalo tips - you may "chop" these into lengths suited to the subsequent fashioning of nocks. Cross sectionally, we shall ensure that they have adequate thickness for the job
Average horn weight will be 600 - 800g and be 13 - 20" plus in length.
MINIMUM ORDER VALUE FOR OUTSIDE UK £50.00
Full length ( hollow portion plus solid tip ) of selected, regular crescent shaped "swamp type" Water Buffalo horns of East Asian origin.
Selected horns for bow building have curvature in one plane only and no side ( "torsional" ) twist. Selection further ensures no deep dimpling / cracks that will take away form the potential of the material.
All horns will of course have weathered outer surfaces, some more than others - the potential of the piece should be assessed from the smooth inner surface outwards and not from the rough outer surface inwards. If you have the equipment to cut these for yourself, then you will have all the extra material ( side strips and points ) left over to use on other jobs.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE NO LONGER PREPARE "BACKSTRIP" CUT HORNS......YOU MUST ACQUIRE THE HORNS AND DO THIS JOB YOURSELVES
80 - 90cm horns are RARE and take time to find in bulk stock - thus a premium is payable and the order may take A FEW WEEKS to enable selection from bulk stored material.
Useful, nominally thicknessed material ideal for arrow nocks. Both are saw cut, so a little sanding will thin them down pretty quickly.
Two separate thicknesses available to accommodate the range of requests that we get.
Up to 180pcs / kg ( fewer if thicker 2 - 4mm bits requested ), saves a lot of tricky cutting and leaves your fingers intact!!!
Significant stock of both thicknesses - archery trade enquiries welcome.
Laminating strips cut from the side portion of the Water Buffalo horn and following the trimming out of the backstrip. Straighter and flatter than backstrip. Useful pieces up to 4" in width, 1/4" - 3/8" thick and 10" - 16"+ in useable length. Will require prep work to dimension out smooth sided stock pieces on outer (weathered) surface.
Massive stock. Great volume discounts!!!!!
Produced from solid black Water Buffalo horn, handy dowels in a range of diameters, with a range of applications. From 10mm - 40mm diameter, varying lengths. Good bulk discounts.
Stark, vibrant colours in these scarce horn points. May be used as nocks that have an appearance dramatically different from the standard black buffalo horn most commonly used.
2.5" - 3" pieces typically light coloured centres diffusing out into straw / greeny outer graining.
Longer pieces - 3.5" and over - may be used where heavier nocks are intended. Many of these longer pieces have unique red/brown and blue tones in them. Stunning when polished
