The resultant pattern is as close to a natural "vine" created grooving as it's possible to get.
The sticks are then flamed and lightly polished.
Very attractive, eye catching, dependable strong sticks.

False Noses and Pigtail adapters

Special OfferFalse Noses and Pigtail adapters

Currently on special offer!

Which is which

False noses (see top in photo) enable a bench grinder to be adapted for use as a polishing machine. Strip the guards and stones off and secure the noses (sleeve on fitting - grub screw retention). When correctly fitted mop will rotate towards you in order that any "snatch" of workpiece from your grasp propels it towards the floor and not up into your face!!!!
Guarding upon adaptation is an important safety consideration!!!
Grinders will handle all of the mop sizes we sell - for larger diameter mops simply raise the grinder on a wooden block.

Pigtails (single - bottom in photo) enable use of mops with a veice secured electric drill. Best to have one pigtail per mop as they take a very very tight grip!! Fit most domestic chucks to 1/2"
False noses are **NEW** and unused but may have light layer of surface rust

Cow horn, Craft Grade

Special OfferCow horn, Craft Grade

Currently on special offer!



We source these horns in West Africa for a variety of reasons. Availability, size, versatility in application, but above all else, colour. Like all cow horns, they either have darker ( black ) or lighter ( varying shades of brown ). Whatever colour is present in the tip, it diffuses into streaked, lighter / cream and white colour as you move up the horn towards the broad, hollow end.
All horns are cored out, boil washed and hygenic - just as we receive them.
Typically they will be used for drinking horns, blowing horns, powder horns or cuttting down to yield a variety of plates / rounds / tips for use in making smaller items such as spoons, bangles, shoe horns and other items too numerous to mention.
If the colours look good "in the raw", then just wait until they are sanded and polished, when the material really comes alive with stark contrasting tones and depth of colour.
Please bear in mind that pretty much 100% of cow horns suffer from internal concentric splitting to a greater or lesser extent...a seperation of layers that is always present. This is not something that we can effectively select to avoid - it's always there, period. A little care will however get you around it and it need not necessarily be to the detriment of the worked article, especially once you have "the hang" of working with the material.
Categorised in three different length classes.,
18 - 24"
24 - 30"
30"+ ( up to 44" on occasion )
Call us to discuss individual selection tailored to your requirements or put some relevant comments in the field at the end of the ordering process please.

Mixed grade fabric mop incorporating linen and cotton. All 1" working width and in the following diameters.....

Cow Horn Tips

Special OfferCow Horn Tips

Currently on special offer!

Well coloured, thick walled, substantial tips cut from bulk stock of "Craft Grade" horns.

The tip colour will diffuse back into lighter cream and white colours as you move towards the broad end of the piece. Generously cut - usually 8" - 10" in length.
Note: ALL cow horns suffer from splits. Should minor splitting be evident in these horns, ,then for stickmaking, it is assumed that they will be shanked on the nose end and "capped off" or "domed" ( with resin ).
That said, no cracking present will be to the potential detriment of the finished piece.
