We’ve now got 4 sticks made by Mark! Claud (Border Terrier) and Betty (Vizsla) and the 2 alpaca crooks. They are really beautiful pieces of work and make amazing presents. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Mark thank you very much, I have today received my Border Collie & Blue Faced Leicester Crook, it is perfect and the Border Collie looks just like my Beau. The hard part now is keeping it hidden from my husband until his birthday in January. Once again thank you, it is perfect.
I have just received the most wonderful stick from Mark - we sent him pictures of our Wirehaired Vizsla Maddison and h what’s captured her to an absolute T - Thank you so much Mark
We have just received the most beautifully carved walking stick for our son. The workmanship is exemplary. Mark was a pleasure to deal with and was in contact throughout the process of creating this treasured item. From first contact to receiving a well packaged item the service was first class. Thank you so much Mark. You bought a lovely smile to a very poorly young man.
I would highly recommend Mark's work as he made a beautiful replica of our dogs head for my father's walking stick. Not only was the topper beautiful but the shipping and packaging was fast as well protected and Mark responded quickly to any messages I sent.
Thanks again Mark.
Collected my stick depicting our Norfolk Terrier - absolutely fantastic - it looks just like him. Thanks Mark .
Great stick, quick and reliable service, many thanks.
Just received Pearl the Pug stick absolutely delighted 🙂 Pictures do not do it justice - beautifully crafted with so much detail. Will have to get one of my other dog now as well 🙂
As l said in my phone call,l have just received the stick from yourself and would like to say what a fantastic job you did and what an excellent 80th birthday present it is going to make, once again thank you.
Just received my custom made new walking stave being commissioned as a homage to my dearest dog Wiley who lightens up my every day. And I have not been as pleased to receive anything since I won a push along scooter at a fair when I was 6 or when my now wife presented me with a custom made Scorpion gold ring on my 35th Birthday. My Stave is an absolutely marvellous likeness of my Wiley and I and my wife continue to delight when we look at it along with many people we have met remarking very favourably upon it!
Mark came highly recommended and I am delighted with the stick - a birthday gift for my husband. It is a very close likeness to his late and much-loved cocker spaniel, Zack
Mark was recommended to me and I am happy he was. He has made me a beautiful stick with an incredible detailed likeness to my Irish terrier at top !! The whole process was really quick . Thank you Mark
Just received Rosie and absolutely delighted with her, would love to add a picture but don't know how to. (Reply M G, Thanks Betty your stick is displayed on the website in the Sticks page under Rosie Border Terrier.)
I commissioned Mark to make me a walking pole with a head of my Cocker Spaniel, Zirka. The finished product is excellent. An uncanny likeness of the dog that she initially shied away from but I feel great walking around my locality with Zirka and my walking pole. I’m proud to endorse Mark’s skill and happy to recommend him to anyone.
I commissioned Mark to make a stick in the likeness of my first dog, a 'one-off' Border Terrier called 'Mac', who we lost in 2011. The process was very smooth and Mark kept me updated by sending photos by email, which allowed me to make slight amends until I was happy with the result. The 'Mac' stick arrived today and I am extremely 'chuffed' with it, a top quality, unique item backed by smooth, friendly and efficient customer service. Well done and thank you Mark!
Mark was recommended to me. I wanted a stick for my husbands 60th Birthday of our Labradoodle Benjie. He kept in touch throughout the process . I recieved it and now can’t wait to show him. It is absolutely wonderful such fantastic attention to detail .
Can’t thank him enough
Commissioned Mark to make me a Meerkat stick for a 21st present.Fantastic result! Mark also restored several other sticks; new shafts and engraved collars etc, including my Great, Great Grandfather's Dress Cane with new ebony shaft. All in all, superb craftsmanship and a very happy experience.
Commissioned a wooden crook stick as a wedding present for my fiancé. Mark was so helpful and the stick is amazing. I’m so pleased and can’t wait to “hand it over”.
Top marks Mark for customer service 😊
Just received some pictures of the completed stick....it looks wonderful and so like our Border Terrier Murdo!
Mark was so helpful throughout the process of making the stick he kept in touch informing how the stick was coming along and giving an estimate completion date
In this day and age it is wonderful to see a true craftsman at work....I know my husband will be delighted with this gift and will use it daily as he walks his dogs
I commissioned a stick for my son's 30th birthday so I was looking for something special. Mark willingly gave friendly advice, made excellent suggestions (leather work, engraving etc.) and always did what he said he would, when he said he would do it.The end product was amazing and my son loves it. A truly bespoke service at a very reasonable price. Could not recommend more highly. Thank you Mark!
