Thumbnail Filmstrip of Sampo Stainless Steel: Large Black, Large Silver, Medium Ring, or Small Ring Images
DescriptionThese large Sampo swivels have been used by falconers for a very long time. The ball bearings insure that these swivels will rotate and keep your hawk tangle-free at all times.
We fit our own solid stainless steel rings, on the two custom sizes, made from high quality stainless steel and have them welded by a master welder local to us here in Wyoming. You won't see a better weld on a swivel-this guy is very good.
You can choose the ring size to match your own individual jesses from this selection of sturdy Sampo swivels. Contact us directly for custom Sampo swivels.
