About Horst John
When one thinks of quality Brazilian handcrafted pernambuco wood bows, one name comes to mind: Horst John. Founded in 1951 as a precious woods exporter by a 24 year-old German-born immigrant, Horst John became a true pioneer by converting his firm's noble woods operation to bowmaking twenty years later. It was, and continues to be, a reference point of high standards in the quality of its naturally dried process (not artificially force cured). John only used pernambuco wood from a decades-old private stock approved by the Brazilian Environmental Authorities. The company today continues the same practice of using only aged wood.
