This is a lovely piece of Water Buffalo Horn cut to the shape of a horseshoe and then made into a handle for a walking staff. It has been finely polished and then secured to a fine piece of Crab Apple to make the shank. I have then varnished the shank with a high quality varnish for protection. I have made a nice grip from real leather strip which finishes it off nicely. At the other end, once I know what length you would like I will add either a rubber ferrule, an alloy spike, brass ferrule or a combination tip. Just let me know your preference when ordering.
