Nice, Great work on that quiver ... i will make one myself ... when i have time : ) ... but last month i made a medieval arrowbag, it will do for now ; ) i try to post some photos next weak ... The bow itself is great ... i have also a recurve 60lb beast, only with detachable limbs.
Wow! And here I was simply thinking of making a leather quiver and beading it for our bows. I guess the big question now is, with all the work on your "tome", have you had any opportunity to use that recurve lately? Beautiful, beautiful work.
Japanese asymmetric bow - planning on doing a little archery from horseback are you? The Mongolian bows are fascinating, but I don't know where you'd get those types (Japanese or Mongolian) of bows here.
Right now I have a recurve that comes apart (very handy for carting around) and just ordered a hand-made long bow from a very good bowyer near where I live. I tried one of his long-bows, and although it was over 45 pounds to draw, it was like nothing - when you're not very strong that makes a huge difference. I'll be learning to make arrows for it too - I wonder if those could be submitted as art on DA.
Looking forward to your book. I already told my husband that when it comes out I want a copy
Why not?.. it's a craft.. right?... have you seen Japanese arrows?... they are superb, very similar to real arrows for the longbow but much longer.. about a metre or so..large flights too..
Have you come across D. Himmelfarbs: "Zen in the art of asrchery"? Interesting little volume... and I mean little... but we all know about little packages... right? Thanks again for your lovely comments and give hubby a hi from me too, bye for now, really nice chatting and will pass by again and chk yr Gall.... Ciao!, Peter.
