Pressure = Resistance
Resistance = lack of control
A horse is an animal of flight – it will never yield to pressure or pain it will either move away from it or run away.
To remove the resistance one must remove the pressure Or distribute the pressure over a larger surface area.
All the component parts are welded, formed and ground by hand.
The sweet iron after treatment, gives off a striking and attractive deep blue tint.
The finishing touch: the size and brand name are stamped on the left hand side of the bit.
A Bomber bit is entirely handcrafted.
Therefore every cheekpiece, mouthpiece, width and thickness is possible.

Sweet Iron will oxidize when it comes into contact with moisture; this oxidation process encourages salivation which improves acceptance of the bit.
This process changes the blue colour of the Bomber bit to a brownish grey.
If not used for a while, any build- up may be removed with a scourer and wiped with a damp cloth.
