ORDERS RECEIVED TO DATE IN PROCESS
ON REOPENING WE WILL ADVERTISE A SUBSTANTIAL FRESH STOCK OF FINE QUALITY HAZEL SHANKS TOGETHER WITH A VARIETY OF PRE CHRISTMAS OFFER ITEMS,
YOUR PATIENCE APPRECIATED.
PREFORMED TOPS & HANDLES
High quality buffalo horn handles in a variety of traditional shapes and patterns. Supplied balanced, symmetrical and worked to the point that all that is further required is matching to a suitable shank, dressing and proportioning to finish the job. We can also make to pattern by request.
Nicely balanced, solid water buffalo handles in traditional Victorian patterns.
"ROUND HANDLE" - shown left
"PRINCE OF WALES" HANDLE - shown right
Ideal for lighter weight shafts, especially walking stick heights and will fit at 21 - 23mm. Most show striking graining and some with grey / green streaks evident on polishing to finish. Both may also be carved.
The "Round" handle provides a very solid grip where support from the stick is required.
The "Prince of Wales" grip is ideal for a more slender shaft and is more a decorative than supportive handle in use.
Wide prong handle supplied with two top surface Edinburgh Hallmarked finials. You will rebate the prong tops and fit the finials over the rebated portion. The sizing of the finials ensures a perfect smooth line in finish and they can easily be glued in place once you have achieved a good "push fit". Nice chunky finials giving an average of 14g solid silver per set. Prestige combination. Nothing "sets off" buffalo horn better than Sterling silver!!!
Ideal catapult / rifle rest tops in carefully fashioned Water Buffalo horn. Sanded to a very satisfactory pre polish finish, very little further work required.
26 - 28mm on the base.
We offer a choice between plain buffalo horn or buffalo horn with bone style caps....something a little different and giving an interesting contrast in finishes depending on your own preference
Perfectly balanced, finely sanded classical "crutch" type handle in Black / Blue / grey buffalo horn.
Ready to polish and fit to shaft 23mm or under. An excellent, supportive handle to go with our Turned Shafts ( 900mm variety ) and easily fitted with the aid of a Nickel Flange ring ( see Ferrules, Spacers, Collars & Fixings section ) which will give the all important Black / Silver contrast in finish!!
Same as the shaped Standard market Handle but made from a larger, heavier horn giving a long "turnable" nose. Will make up into a nose out Market Handle / Crook with a little heating and shaping.
Some figured pieces ( occasionally!!! ) available showing greys and white up the heel and over the crown.
Plumb and balanced in proportion.
Heavier weights shank to 26mm+
Medium will typically shank to 23 - 25mm.
Lighter pieces available....suitable for ladies weight sticks ( typically 20/22mm on base).
Water buffalo horn top reminiscent of catapult shape. Fine sanded finish, "prongs" rounded on the top, 25 - 28mm on base diameter, good volume discounts.
Want to work these into catapult handles...... - ask us for stag antler extensions and see catapult rubber in sundries section.
Now with the added choice of Bone style capped prongs for a little extra contrast in finish !
Similar to our long popular "lyre" pattern handle and also in Water buffalo horn, these pieces are a little larger and shaped and taken to a fine surfaced "pre polish" finish.
Many show strong graining with white and grey layering prominent in the side walls.
Bone style capped handles give a little extra choice, nice contrast!
For use a rifle rests, walker tops or catapults.......you choose.
