NEW! RITCHIE TYPE PRIMITIVE HOOK
Do you know of the Ritchie 8mm primitive hooks imported from England? Well, I have one and I LOVE IT! It feels so good in my hand and the large bore shaft is just right for primitive rug hooking. The Ritchie hooks are no longer available but a Midwestern artisan has made his own and they are fabulous! I have compared it to my Ritchie hook and these hooks are just as nice!
They have a stainless steel shank, hardwood handle and a brass ferule, making for a really sturdy but not a heavy hook. I hold my hook like a pencil hook and I don't experience hand fatigue due to the larger diameter of the handle. Looking for a Ritchie style hook? These are as close as you can get! You're going to love them!
I currently have one 8mm purple heart handle with an 8mm shank and four more beautiful 8mm hooks in beautiful, warm wood grains. I know the one with the pronounced stripe on the grain, one of the longer handled hooks is ash. I don't know the type of woods used in the other three hooks but the are lovely hardwoods.
The shorter double-bulb handled hooks are 4&3/4" long and 1&1/4" wide at their widest point.
The longer, single bulb longer handled hooks are 5&3/4" by 3/4" at their widest point.
I am expecting several more hooks in the longer handle style with the single bulb in a 6mm size hook soon and will photograph and list them asap.
They fly out the door as quickly as I get them in. I hope to keep them in stock!
Please indicate in a convo which type of handle you prefer. Each hook is $56.00.
The purple heart handle has a smooth grain and is plum colored. The others have warm wood tones. All are really great. Thanks!
