Horn & Bone

If I have sparked your interest in an personalised thumb ring, made out of Buffalo Horn or Bone, I would be happy to start making one for you.

How do I find my size?

For optimum fit under tension, the rings have an oval diameter. The easiest way to determine your size is with either a slide caliper or by simply placing your thumb on a sheet of paper and tracing the outline.

It is best to use the measurement guide: Measurement Guide for Ottoman Thumbrings

How long does it take for the ring to be made?

The ring is handmade out of a piece of raw buffalo horn (black) or bleached cow shin bone (white). It can take up to 7 hours to add the final polish to the ring.

How much does it cost?

The price for a custom-made ring is € 69, – (for  Bone, i have to add € 10,-)

Your ring will be made according to your wishes and requirements. The price depends on the time involved. I would be happy to provide an offer after your first contact. Once you have placed your order I will start working on the ring. When your ring is ready, I will send you an e-mail with my invoice and bank account number. Once I have received the money I will send you the ring via post.

What does the ring look like?

As all the rings are hand-made they are unique. I shape the ring to fit your thumb. You also will receive a pouch for storing your ring.

How does the ring fit?

You basically will only find out when you use the ring to draw your bow. Despite my best efforts it might be necessary to use sandpaper or a round file to go over some of the areas so that the ring fits perfectly. I would be happy to help you with this “fine tuning”.
