Osage 5curve with ironwood handle 51#/28″ (No. 98)

The stave was knot free, no natural curves no humps no bumps. I thought it is a good idea to add a bit: ironwood handle (don’t no the exact species – but is of course not HHB), ridge on the belly (runs out 4” before tip).

Buffalo horn for tip overlays and black calf leather for the handle.

Hi Simon,

Awesome looking bow, I like it a lot! However #97 is still my favourite. I am really impressed on how smoothly the draw weight increases with draw length and it appears that this bow would stack very little as you draw it back. Again a super light bow for this draw weight! Fantastic job. It inspires me to start trying recurves. I want to get good a doing regular bows first though….
