I can add a brass hook to any shuttle. The brass is laminated into the shell when it is glued up, then shaped. In this picture I've included a #14 crochet hook so that you can compare the size. 

I can also add a brass spike to any shuttle. The brass is laminated into the shell just like the brass hook, only the shaping is different. You might select a brass spike if you like a thinner or a sturdier spike, or if you select a relatively soft wood like Lacewood. 

 

Here's a picture showing all four point styles.  Clockwise from the top:  No spike, Wooden Spike, Brass Spike, Brass Spike.
