These quills can be used for fishing bobbers. The quills have been cleaned and sterilized.
The B-Grade African porcupine quills are of a lower quality. These quills may be bent, flattened, have broken ends, or otherwise flawed. They tend to have a stubby end instead of a sharp point, often having a more muted brown and white coloring instead of crisp black and white, and are often not as clean as the A-grade or #1 quills. This grade is what most other firms sell as A-grades.
The thick quills are 3 to 8 mm thick in the middle.
A USFWS export permit is required for all shipments outside the USA.
South African porcupines are not endangered.
