I would like to make one eventually. First I'm going to make some easier handles and get a little experience though.

The carvings on the end of the hooks. At first I thought "pineapple" then I realized that they are actually thistles.

Change the shape just a little and you could have a snowman with a tophat. :)

All beautiful sticks but I think my favorite is the horn handled one with the blue ribbon.

You guys do some amazing things with horn. Until I started studying stickmaking I had no idea it could be bent and shaped like that.

I made a pair of powder horns from cow horns but I didn't shape them. I cut the wooden caps to fit instead.

A horn handle is another thing I really want to try someday.

another picture of a one piece crook in the making

one is a standard size the other a minature about 9 inches made by Nick Richards

Nice work both made from single piece of hazel .

Minature sticks seem to be popular at the moment could be just a Christmas thing but there nicely done .the most popular seem to be miniature rams horns and water buffalo horn crooks crooks

That's some nice work. I like his pencil too. I think it's the first non-manufactured pencil I've ever seen.
