The Boxwood Cue, made by Thurstons

Description:
One of the oldest cues in my collection, but sadly has been cut down significantly since the time it was made - I?m looking for a better example, so if you have one get in touch! Before the invention of the ferrule, cues would splinter at the time, and had to be chopped at the tip to return to solid wood. This cue has an ash shaft with hand spliced plain ebony butt featuring inlayed maker?s name.
