Osage hunting bow 80#/28″, (No. 12)

The stave was very clean, only two little knots with no problems. Recurves are steam bent, selfnocks no overlay, handle porc leather.
Cross section is rectangular and runs into triangular levers.  I personally like the willow leaf front profile (very long fades) and the eagle wing shape of the unbraced side profile.
This bow is a really hard and fast shooter.
