Peter's Quiver and bow by Peter-The-Knotter Peter's Quiver and bow by Peter-The-Knotter
My Quiver made a couple years back, thought I'd stick this up whilst I am engrossed in finishing tome...

This is flax, (its so strong) with just one bead...

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.

hey!,
Thanks bro'... just practice arrows as you've noticed...

Sweet! look forward to the pix... will + you....

this one 56lb.. but I've had arthritis since I was 21 so.... Still packs a wallop tho'... ;) might take up kyudo as the way of drawing an assymetric is so different.... OK...

Nice to make your acquaintance!
Later, Peter.

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.

Thx for comment...

Chance would be fine thing... :D

Best wishes! Peter,

btw: If my book sells I'm gonna get a mongolian hunting bow and a japanese assymetric bow...

I understand.

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? :D 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.
