RED STAG & ROE ANTLER
Our 20+ years experience in handling several tonnes of Scottish Red Stag antler each year assures you of the best of selectable stock from which every order is carefully and knowledgably fulfilled.
Nice angled position ( tine to beam )
Round and thickwalled on the base, generally just either side of an inch ( 25mm ) in cross section, good thick walled material and well coloured / figured. 70% of these pieces are "cast" Undamaged, flawless.
Greater variation in angle of tine to beam, perhaps a little thinner in the walls. 70% of these pieces are "cut" ( from cull stags ). Good serviceable material, no damage. Round in cross section
Tines lend themselves to trimming, bases perhaps a little oval ( correctable with use of spacer )
May be a little washed out looking owing to weathering. Almost all material is "cut" ( from cull animals ) and some pedicles may have sawcut damage. Includes "double brows" ( often favoured for carvings ).
Thumbstick pieces from the best of stock.
Feel free to specify your preferred material diameter ( put in comments field at end of ordering process ).
We cut all stag handles larger than required, so trimming will be required to get them to ideal size....this ensures that you get the shape that you want, trimming it out from an "overly adequate" starting shape.
"Premium" - very best available material with fine even rich colouring and balance. Round cross section on cut base and particularly thick walls.
"Standard" - Well shaped with good colour, balance and round cross section.
"Slight seconds" - serviceable pieces that will make decent thumb handles but will commonly have one slightly non standard prong and may possibly be a bit oval on the base - a feature easily rectified with fitting of a spacers which will enable the "rounding" of the base ahead of fitting to a shank.
Specific shapes may be accomodated subject to stock.
**NOT** suitable for stickmaking.
The very best of (predominately) cast material, rich dark colours, clean, well defined crowns. Sizes, pairings, shapes to your request or personal selection where possible.
Various categories/ prices £POA per kg to suit the requirements of the project.
We have a good client base of people involved in interior design and the manufacture of light fittings, furniture and chandeliers etc. By virtue of that we have an excellent understanding of the aesthetics of what's required for that type of work.......phone and discuss your requirements!!!!

We carry a huge , diverse stock of Roe antler.
Large - With very full "purled" figuring and branching, most suited to stick tops, should you require Roe for that purpose.
Medium - Again very well figured, a little smaller in overall proportion to the "large" variety, selected pieces still suitable for stick tops but best suited to Sgian Dubh and craft blade fittings ( cheese knives, letter openers, bottle openers, magnifier handles )
Smaller - For smaller craft blade, general craft use and Kilt pins.
