Charles Nicolas Bazin was born in 1847. His father, François Xavier Bazin, was a successful bow maker in Mirecourt and he trained Charles Nicolas from an early age in craftsmanship and business. François died in 1865, and Charles Nicolas was put in charge of the workshop at the age of 18. He was initially assisted by Claude Charles Nicolas Husson, but after a few years he handled the business alone. Bazin was trained in the Peccatte style, so his work was initially very strong and angular. As he progressed as a maker, his bows became softer. He also studied for a time under esteemed bowmaker François Nicolas Voirin. Voirin’s influnece is clearly evident in the more slender heads of Bazin’s bows.
