Yew selfbow with characterful antler nocks

Description

This 40 lb (@28″) yew self bow is in the historic style of a Drover’s Bow: a full compass tiller, but much lighter than a War Bow. It is made from a single piece of yew wood which has plenty of character and includes both sapwood and heartwood throughout its length. I have left the antler nocks in their original shape, to maintain a natural and unique feel. The wound leather handle helps give a comfortable grip when shooting, but can be removed for historical accuracy, if desired. The string is of single loop, flemish twist Fast-Flight construction. Linen strings are available on request.
