crochet hooks are solid wood either Cherry or Maple. I hand turn the handle and shank portion on my lathe. Then I hand carve the hook. Sanded very smooth and finished with a light coat of Antique Oil, as you crochet it will be naturally finished further. Sizes available are US F through US U, outside of that range custom order. I do sign, label with both the US and mm size the bottom of each hook. Each hook $34. A photo of your specific hook available on order.
