This is a hybrid double bass bow (NOT A GERMAN BOW, TalkBass just made me pick one or the other) that I commissioned in 2015 from the acclaimed Canadian bow maker Bernard Walke. It is extremely well balanced and weighs in at 137g. I have loved this bow since I received it but find myself interested in only German bows nowadays. I paid $4000 originally and am discounting due to a few non-threatening hairline cracks in the tip plate, which I have provided pictures of. This bow was just re-haired & inspected on 9/25/2020 by renowned bow maker Sue Lipkins, in which she deemed the tip-plate cracks as a non-issue and do not impact any aspect of the sound or playability of the bow. Feel free to message me for trials and any other questions about this bow!
