Shepherds Crook in Brown Tiger Stripe Burr Oak.

This traditionally shaped Shepherds Crook , is made from a very attractive and uncommon piece of Brown Tiger Stripe Burr Oak, pinned across the crown to add extra strength to the short grain section.

"Tiger Stripe " refers to the dark lines in the wood ,caused by an infection of the Beefsteak fungus when the tree was living.

Burr , refers to growths on the tree , caused by proliferation of epimorphic cells in an area that then develops into a large growth.

Shanked to a particularly well marked length of oiled Blackthorn.

Stainless steel collar, brass ferrule.

Length 52" to top of the crown.
