Buffalo Horn pre fashioned nocks

Buffalo Horn pre fashioned nocks

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!!!

Buffalo horn points

Buffalo horn points

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.

Craft Grade Buffalo horn tips




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.

Buffalo Horns ( full )

Buffalo Horns ( full )



MINIMUM ORDER VALUE FOR OUTSIDE UK £35.00


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.

If not see our catalogue entry immediately below for "backstrip" cut horn......we can send only the backstrips or can send backstrip PLUS offcuts ( offcuts are useful!!!! )

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.

Buffalo Horn back strips

Buffalo Horn back strips


MINIMUM ORDER VALUE FOR OUTSIDE UK £35.00



Take a look at the catalogue entry for "full horns". Backstrips are a little more expensive, having handling + cutting included in the price.

You receive the "back strip" material with it's natural internal and external surfaces untouched, ready to dress down and dimension. These are lighter in weight to send overseas, so saving on shipping costs and with the cutting already done for you. Typically a very generous 50mm+ in width, and your specified length on the outer arc.
Photo shows backstrip removed by bandsawing from typical , suitable horn. 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. We can forward either "just" the strips ( to save carriage costs ) or strips plus offcuts where carriage costs are quoted ahead of payment and approved by you. If you want the leftover material also sent....mention this in the comments field at the end of the ordering process please.

Buffalo Horn slices 75x25mm/ kg

Buffalo Horn slices 75x25mm/ kg

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.

Buffalo Horn side strips

Buffalo Horn side strips

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!!!!!

Sinew

Sinew

Air dried sets of 4 pieces. Red stag leg sinew 200 - 300mm uncombed length.

Cartilage remaining on one end to prevent dry shortening of pieces.

Consistent quality material.

Trade bulk rates available when we have sufficient stock.

Suggest 8 sets minimum required for one horn backed bow.

Buffalo horn dowels

Buffalo horn dowels

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.

White Buffalo / Ox horn points for nocks

White Buffalo / Ox horn points for nocks

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
