Grade A Buffalo Horn tips
Good regular crescent shaped horns,"in plane", well proportioned, free from splits, cracks and other visible defects. Grade "A" horns will leave nothing to chance for the stickmaker as they are "just the job" for this type of work and have more than adequate proportions. These are carefully selected from bulk stock, lesser pieces being downgraded to Grade "B" material or "Craft" material.
Generously measured on the outer arc.
We have imported water buffalo horn tips in bulk since 1990.
From bulk stock, the longer the horn, the fewer we get. This has been particularly the case in the last 3 - 5 years, - animals are no longer kept to "ripe old ages", and longer horns come from older animals - - so, if they are "long" they are significantly more expensive. Extra long horns for stickmaking will often be a little irregular in shape - however, may equally be worked "in reverse" ( shanked on the nose end ). Ample consideration to cross sectional bulk ( profile ) will be given in picking these out. They can, when shaped like this be easier to work, as the extra length permits more area to clamp up / grip when heating and shaping.
