          TRADITIONALLY MADE YEW SELFBOW ENGLISH WARBOW

 

                                                                               Bow length between nocks - 78"

                                               Draw weight:

                                               95lbs @ 28"

                                               110lbs @ 32"

This bow is hand made from a single yew stave cut in Wessex in 2008. It is a traditional English full compass longbow. All my bows are made in the traditional way from staves split out of coppiced yew, (they are NOT made from two billets of wood and joined at the handle). This means that the stave is spilt along the line of the grain in the same way as it was done in the medieval period, (not gone off the line of, or across the grain as can be the case with staves that are sawn out of billets and trunks as most are today) producing a more resilient bow. You can see the natural dips and curves in a bow made from a split stave where the split has followed it's own route around knots and other imperfections in the log. Each bow is individual and totally unique! 

This awesome bow has the cambium intact on its back, which helps protect the sapwood layer.  The cambium on this bow is quite light brown/yellow colour. Yew selfbows do not normally have the cambium left on so this positive attribute is an unusual feature (many of the Mary Rose bows had the cambium on them).

This bow is made from a superb stave, a sister stave of the 140lbs warbow that I sold on here last month for £495.00 (please see the very postitive feedback I got for that bow, and all my other bows!). The stave has no knots, other than some tiny pins, it is unusally knot free for a bow of this length (see photo of back of bow showing no knots!). It has a narrow sapwood layer and is around 30% / 70% sap to heart) and dense growth rings of around 40rpi (and is just as good as Italian Alpine yew)!  You could easily pay double the listed price for a heavy weight yew warbow of this quality (thats if you could find one)!

This bow is aligned for a right-handed archer.

The bow is protected with walnut oil and beeswax and the nocks are polished with beeswax. This bow has individual hand made horn nocks with stringing grooves and comes with a Dacron flemish string and stringer.

So if you are after a truly stunning, authentic and unique English yew Warbow that would have graced the field at Agincourt or Crecy here is your chance :- This bow is made in the traditional way from English yew in England by an Englishman....... Happy bidding...

A leather hand grip can be fitted if required. I will ship to countries outside of the uk, please contact me to get postage costs (Please add £10 to standard UK postage cost for delivery to Northern Ireland). Please ask for shipping costs to European countries and the US.
