Osage static recurve 47#/28″ (Nr. 1)

This osage has a big curve in the upper limb, coming from a dead branch. Cross section is nearly rectangle from fades to midlimb then tapers into a stacked belly until it reaches the stringbridge. The levers have an almost triangular cross section, or more like a T.  Inlays, overlays and arrowpass are buffalo horn. The pistol handle was requested by the custumer – not my favorite design. Recurves are steamed in, several heat corrections for string alignment, heating out a deflexed area and to bring the levers in line. In this stave were several deep drying cracks, I filled them up with superglue.
