Simple spurs

These are about as simple as you can get.

These are one piece spurs, with a 1" band, 1.5" roper shank, and an 1.25" clover rowel. The steel I use is 4140.
These spurs sold for 325.00$.

I built a set for Curtis (the new owner) a couple of years ago, and the only complaint he had was they didn't rust fast enough. I stopped polishing on these at about 400 grit, and they should age a little quicker. The last set were long shanked and big rowelled, and have got him bucked off a new horse a time or two. Maybe these will cure the problem.
