The man who knows what aesthetes want!
Peter Hofer, born in 1958, studied at the Institute for Higher Technical Studies in Metalwork and Weapons Manufacturing and became the youngest master gunmaker worldwide.
In 1986 he founded his own company. International success and prominent clients provided great scope for artistic creativity in the design of exclusive sporting guns.
Awards and exhibitions all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East, the USA and Russia and the Ukraine etc., led to rapid development, continuous expansion and new company locations. Incredible as it may seem, the unique creations that leave the workshop are all handcrafted by Peter Hofer, some even taking up to twelve years.
How is one of the most desirable handcrafted hunting weapons by Peter Hofer in the world created?
The manufacturing process of hunting weapons handcrafted by Peter Hofer begins in his head. Talent and the urge to create absolute perfection guide his gifted hands while a unique work of art is composed from the many million possibilities – as unique in the world as the future owner of the newly created Peter Hofer hunting weapon is.
Peter Hofer has always known how to draw international attention and interest to his weapons, with elegance, clarity and self-confidence, with good design that makes itself useful in the best sense.
A Peter Hofer weapon is created almost entirely by hand. There is no machine as perfect, intuitive and reliable as the people who produce the hunting weapon masterpieces in an almost unlimited technical range according to the 500-year old tradition of craftsmanship in Peter Hofer’s workshop.
Since the construction of a hunting weapon by Peter Hofer can take several years, Peter always makes an effort to have a small collection of extraordinary masterpieces readily available for his very special customers.
For those who can buy themselves anything – except time!
