BP Spurs: Guaranteed Against Complaint or Defect

by Jim Poulton

I must confess to a bias. We’re talking about my big brother. Among all kinds of other things he’s done in his life, he’s a spur-maker. He makes them by hand in a little metal working shop he’s built on his ranch in southern Utah. You’re probably asking: Spur-making? By hand? They still do that? And the answer is Yes they still do that, but ‘they’ is only a few guys in the world. It’s a dying art. And my brother decided several years ago that he was going to help preserve it.

And take a look at these spurs...

They’re all handmade, hand-inlaid and hand-engraved. Bob forges and cuts the metal, welds the nickel silver to the neck, shank and bands, then maps out the design and inlays or engraves it.

It’s a long process, as you can imagine, but how many people do you know who can say they own handmade spurs this beautiful?

BP Spurs are rare, since Bob doesn't make very many in a year. Check for any current inventory.

Here’s what Worthpoint has to say about them:

These spurs are entirely handmade and built for years of use. Bob Poulton, the maker, works out of his little shop at his place in Wayne County, in the heart of the open range cattle country of south central Utah. Wayne County is home of the Outlaw Trail, Robber's Roost, and the Wild Bunch. Guaranteed against complaint or defect.
