This is my Wild cherry English longbow. 72# at 28 inches draw, great cast, everything a selfbow should have. it is made from wild cherry that i cut and seasoned myself, and is a very hard-hitting shooter. light, fast, and stable, this bow is quite a great package. the handle is wrapped in repurposed belt leather, and the purple bands on the limbs are chinese silk. there is also scrolling vine artwork on the back of the bow.
