About Jon & Paul

JonPaul is not just the name of the finest bow-making company in the world. JonPaul is a combow of bow makers Jon Hatch and Paul Prier, who have been business partners almost as long as they have been brothers-in-law. They are using their collective 47 years of experience to raise a new standard in bow-making by merging traditional French techniques with high-tech materials and know-how. One other small note, JonPaul is also the name of the lovable, charming, and devilishly sexy treefrog hanging out on their bows.
