Hickory Recurve With Sinew Backing

This Shagbark Hickory bow was made for a close friend of mine. It is 74" long with recurved tips, made from a piece of Hickory we harvested and split ourselves. It has a very raw and powerful look to it with 2 layers of elk sinew layed accross it's back for extra speed and power. Draw is 57lbs at 34". We can make bows this length, or of any other length in this style. Sinew backing takes time and protects the fibers of the wood with the tendons' elasticity. It is a very specialized process and has been done by our ancestors for thousands of years. If you are interested in a custom, sinew-backed bow of your own, please tell us exactly what you want!
