    Looking for info on Czech Maker

    From book Cesti houslari (Czech violinmakers) by Karel Jalovec (translated by me with my english:)) 'Polak Josef, Velky Osek, Kutna Hora, Kolin, 1920-1935. Self-taught that worked after Stradivari; inserted to violins special bassbar of his own construction.'

    loss of value in bow after spline

    If you call every spline that break 'badly executed', than you are right. Too bad you never know if particular spline is good, you only can say it was bad after it is too late. And possibly, should you live another 100 years, you will find that all of splines were 'badly executed'
