I have some of John's Tudor heads, which are very nice, well made and tough as old boots.  ;)

Yep I can echo that, John's heads are first class, and he's a great bloke.

These are some of his heads

I love the look of these hand wrought heads. So much more soul, character and authenticity than than a "perfect" store bought bodkin! 8)

Have a look at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SmEAqaFIwI
