Masters Traditional Games occasionally obtains some genuine Boxwood pins and cheese. These are hand-turned by a turner who has been making Northamptonshire Skittles maker for decades.
They are varnished with lacquer that is an old family recipe and have trademark rings on the cheeses. They are expensive but boxwood is the hardest and heaviest and longest-lasting English timber and is now rare - so you get what you pay for.
Please note that the pins often have darker areas and knots showing on them. This does not affect the robustness of the wood.
Made in Britain
We have one set of these pins that are slightly defective. Either the pins have a slight split or there is some other defect. This being boxwood, the grain is very tight and so the pins will probably last as well as normal pins but we cannot sell them as perfect. We are making this imperfect set available for half price - and if any pin breaks in the first 3 months of ownership, we will replace it for free. For more information, please contact us.
