This boomerang from the Volker Behrens estate is a right handed strip laminated "U" made by Thomas Münch out of seasoned Oak. A Mahogany wedge and a half brass weight was inserted into both tips. It is signed and dated 1990. I did not test throw this boomerang. These generally have a flight range of 50-70 metres and requires a hard throw with some wind. It is in excellent condition and a wonderful collectable boomerang.
Thomas Münch was a German boomerang craftsman who made beautiful strip laminated boomerangs of the highest quality. Thomas laminated his blanks using thick strips of hardwoods similar to the technique used by Al Gerhards. Many of the Münch blanks had very sharp bends and he often added a wedge of dark Walnut into the tips. He also added brass or lead weights to some of his boomerangs to give them more range. Volker Behrens occasionally made boomerangs using blanks constructed by Thomas Münch. Boomerangs made by Thomas Münch are very rare because not many were made.
