Alpine self Yew warbow. A close copy of the bows found aboard the Mary Rose warship. With Tudor style sidenocks and a brown fast flight string. The arrow pass is designed in accordance with similar arrow pass marks found on the original bows. 

 

This would make an ideal demonstration bow, for collectors and archers wishing to use the real, period correct, equipment. 

 

The stave is typical of quite a number of staves used in the medieval period. It takes advantage of a natural reflex/deflex in the upper limb of which many examples can be found from the wreckage of the Mary Rose and also paintings and artwork. It's too common to be an accident and making heavy warbows from staves of a similar shape produces very fast bows. (if done correctly) 

 

The bow is finished with a mixture of modern varnish and oil. Arrows can be supplied but should be of at least 62 grams for this bow. Shooting heavier arrows for target and practice is ideal.
