Unlike our small porcupine quills, these large ones are imported from Africa. The African porcupine often grows to the size of a small bear. His American relative is much smaller. These quills are gorgeous - from 6 to 12 inches long (most are around 7 to 9 inches).
As with all natural materials, each quill is unique. You can clip the ends and thread through the quill, use it to write by sharpening one end and using it as a dip pen. It would make a great spine base for binding an informal book or pamphlet.
We have even seen them sliced into sections and inlaid in furniture and frames. Because of their size, they also make lovely and unique chignon pins.
These are sharp, so be very careful.
We're showing two quills for illustration only.
