Osage 5curve with pronounced curves 52 #/28” (No. 99)

Nice clean stave, but had some drying cracks on the belly. I filled them with thin super glue – no problems.

All curves are steamed in. In this case a bit more pronounced than on the two bows before. Fades got tapering out ridges.

Black goat leather and linen for the handle, black buffalo horn for tip overlays.

Ah Marlen, haven’t heard from you for a long time.
Good to have you here on my site, thanks for your nice compliment

Yes its has been awhile. I have been busy with work and all. I still have managed to make a few bows, and hopefully soon I will be posting them on the Primitive Archer website. I love these 5 curve bows. I seen bow No. 101 another sweet bow.

One day I will own one of your bows I don’t know how or when. But my Native instincts are telling me this. LOL

Very nice work my friend! Keep cranking out these lovely bows.

hi stone hill I would be interested in buying your bow. I should use it for hunting, I had in mind a bow 66 “lenght, 55 lb @ 30 with an arrow shelf recurve if is possible. could you recommend some of your hunting models? thanks and good job
