Osage with bloodwood handle (No. 81) – Stonehill Primitive Bows

Osage with bloodwood handle (No. 81)

This is a very low dense piece of osage, but it has lots of character. Knots and warts on the back and some nice curves. Also many drying cracks had to be filled with super glue, but went o.k. Being that low dense I did some heat treating to get a bit more out, but even though I could induce a good reflex I ended only with 44#/28. Tips are self tips, one add. ring on the back.

44#/28”

63” ntn

4½” reflex
