African Porcupine Quills

Left: Large Porcupine Quills.

Right: Assorted Thin and Thick B-Grade Porcupine Quills.

See more pictures below.

We have large and extra large African porcupine quills that were specially collected for us over a three-year period in South Africa.  The large quills are 9" to 11" long and the extra large quills are 11" or longer.  They are 6 to 9 mm thick in the middle.  These quills can be used for fishing bobbers.  The quills have been cleaned and sterilized.

We also have some B-Grade African porcupine quills that are of a lower quality.  These quills may be bent, flattened, have broken ends, or otherwise flawed.  They come in bundles of thick and thin quills.  The thick quills are 3 to 8 mm thick in the middle.  The thin quills are 1 to 5 mm thick in the middle.

If you need quills in a narrower size range, e.g., 9" - 10", please add US$1.00 per quill for sorting.  We do not refund sorting fees.
