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.

Buffalo Horn - Knobstick handles

Buffalo Horn - Knobstick handles

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.

STERLING SILVER TOPPED WIDE PRONG

STERLING SILVER TOPPED WIDE PRONG

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!!!

WIDE PRONG THUMB TOP

WIDE PRONG THUMB TOP

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

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).
