Thumbnail Filmstrip of Sampo Custom Stainless Steel Medium & Small Ball Bearing Swivels Images
DescriptionThese medium and small 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 all these custom sizes, which is 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. His welding helmet actually has a magnifying window on it.
You can choose the ring size to match your own individual jesses from this selection of small and medium Sampo swivels.
