Thanks Jeffrey, interesting place. I love being a “junior member”.

I was hoping Jeffrey might introduce a new  discretionary label of 'Honored Expert'.  I had requested that I could be 'Clueless Contributor' but he just sent me a reply with a row of question marks :). We should start a petition.

Wonderful! Thank you!

I wonder how many antique shops in Cincinnati have Deganis lying neglected on a shelf waiting for someone to come in and risk $100 on them?

Thanks for your comments and continuing interest in this bow and this thread. I am looking forward to your article. This particular bow is still my favorite player.

Looking down the stick from the top, it bends ever so slightly to the right. I don't notice any problems playing with it, and I am not sure the risks involved with straightening it would be worth taking if it isn't going to add any real improvement to its performance.

Is the stick straight when you loosen the adjuster?

George, do you still have this bow?

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Yes, I still have it and use it. Great bow. The camber is good. When hair is loose, it bends a tiny bit to the right, and when tightened,  a tiny bit more.

I've got something similar and I love it. The bend is naturally following the grain alignment, so I'm sure it shouldn't be straightened.

Can you please show us a photo of the back of the head showing the grain angle?

I don't know if I can get high enough resolution.

I find the lighting is the tricky part.

Ignore the last photo. The first one isn't Pernambuco, the second one is.

Sorry, I cannot get the pictures of that resolution. It is challenging for me to even see the fine grain with my eyes. If anything, I'd say the grain looks horizontal across the back of the head.

BTW, congrats on posting pictures!

Your bow has off quarter grain, it shows in the side photos. In my opinion this makes for a more lively playing bow. But this is a slightly taboo subject I think because  aesthetics and dynamics are two different issues.

If any of you are interested, my research on the Knopf Dynasty is featured in the June 2021 issue of STRAD magazine.

Thanks for researching and writing this article. I thought it was very interesting.

Do you know how Carl Heinrich Knopf (1839-1875) died at age 35?

Unfortunately the cause of his death is not listed in his death certificate. Btw, my Part 2 of the Knopf Dynasty will be featured in the August issue.
