The Katana is a light boomerang. It requires almost windless weather. With gusty wind the flight
becomes less stable, and then you will need a more practice to master it. Note for people who throw with
a "heavy-hand", this booemrang should be handled very gently; if thrown too hard it loses precision. Its light
weight and low power requirements make this good for children.

Boomerang Hunter or "Łowca Bumerangów" boomerangs are handmade by Miroslaw Sobieszczanski in his workshop in Poland. Miro is a trained carpenter by profession and began making various types of returning boomerangs over 15 years ago. It began when a friend persuaded him to make a boomerang and from then on he was hooked. His boomerangs show true craftsmanship and quality. He takes part in many boomerang events and actively promotes the sport. As he says, “boomerangs are my hobby. I enjoy designing and making them. It's just fun!”
Each boomerang is hand made and hand painted. The design and colour may vary. Wood is a natural material, the appearance, grain and weight will vary.
Breakages in use are NOT covered by any warranty. Boomerangs can break; it does not mean they are faulty! Once it has been thrown, if it breaks - even on the first throw - we are not able to refund you.
All the boomerangs we sell will need tuning to make them perform properly. Tuning a boomerang involves gently bending and twisting the wings to change the flight characteristics of the boomerang. Without tuning it is unlikely that your boomerang will return or fly correctly. It is best to regard a new boomerang as a ‘blank’ which will need tuning to make it fly. You will need to regularly re-tune your boomerang. Tuning the boomerang is part of the challenge and part of the fun! There are plenty of good resources on the internet about this – just Google “tuning a boomerang”.
Boomerangs can be dangerous. Do not throw near people or animals. Do not use in strong winds. Never lose sight of your boomerang when it is in flight. Do not attempt to catch a boomerang that is flying at eye-height. The use of gloves is recommended for catching especially when learning. We accept no responsibility for damage or injury caused through the use of a boomerang. Please play with care.
Boomerangs can break or be damaged if they hit a hard surface. This includes hard ground such as dry or frozen soil. Even a small stone buried in soft ground can break a boomerang if it dives into the soil and hits it. Ideally, throw your boomerang over a soft surface such as grass or sand, away from trees, bushes, rocks or other obstructions. Ensure you have adequate space for the boomerang flight.
