About us

The Dörfler Master Bow is a hand-crafted top-quality product. Only the finest and exquisite materials are used to guarantee a long life cycle. Pernambuco wood is used predominantly. It is the only wood which meets the high standards of flexibility and resilience required to manufacture a Dörfler Master Bow. And it is a prerequisite for the masterly art of giving the bow, through exact bending, the greatest possible tension and the ideal weight balance. The bow hair consists exclusively of natural white horse hair from selected steppe horses of Central Asia. Hair which neither waves nor becomes rotten. The elaborate mother-of-pearl and precious metal mountings on the non-porous ebony frog are valuable refinements which give the Dörfler Master Bow its typical appearance and a long life.
