Hi Tony, The crook arrived safely today. Wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it, stunning quality and craftsmanship! Thank you for making something I’ve wanted for a long time a fantastic first experience. I’m in absolutely no hurry, but I would like to see if you would be willing to make me another with Jacob’s horn in the future. Just let me know if you’re interested and the details of placing an order. 

Kindest regards
Josh ,Oak Ridge , Montana .USA

Tony the two sticks arrived and they are just great! Well made, comfortable and a joy to use. I now have a collection of your sticks but still room  for the odd addition. All your sticks show the same superb craftmanship and eye for detail, many thanks,

Received the walking stick in todays mail. I am very happy with the quality  and construction. It appears very robust but surprisingly light ,as any good walking stick should be. I am certain it will not wear out, and may be something to leave to my son.
Also I was quite impressed with the packaging. I can only hope you do not put as much effort into wrapping Christmas presents as it would be into new year before the presents were unwrapped.
 Thank you for making this wonderful stick.
Robert, Alberta, Canada.

Hi Tony, the walking stick arrived yesterday and a very nice piece it is too.  You have done a great job of marrying up the old handle with a new stick. Packaging was excellent too and it travelled well to Brisbane.

Dear Tony,

The stick arrived safely, thank you.  It is very beautiful with more color in the handle than the picture on your website revealed.  The color and mottling of the hazel shank is also very beautiful.  I am thrilled with the stick’s balance.  It is a delight to carry and a pleasure to use.  Like my dogs, it will become a coveted companion.

Time for a test run I think.

Thanks you

Bob.  Bridgend, South Wales.

Tony , Many thanks – stick arrived and exceeds the web pics that’s for sure, the shaft colour is truly brill in my opinion .

The testimonials your site do you proud and do add this one if it assists. Have just given it its first outing in the rain with the dogs and the length is just right for me .

Good luck with your sales for Xmas 2015 and trust you have a great festive break too.

Best regards,

Andy M. Brighton, East Sussex
