That's really cool and impressive. I've been thinking about getting into archery and was only this morning looking at ordering a Bear super grizzly recurve, but I got a bit lost with all the addons I would need.

Wonderful! Any full view pics of the finished bow?
Begin. To begin is half the work, let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished. -Marcus Aurelius Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.-Plato This is gonna sound weird, but for a second, I think you took on the shape of a unicorn.-Dale Doback
They are self knocked. Normally I do a Hardwood insert or wrapping to reinforce the knock. But she already told me that she would never fly the arrows. So I did paint instead. They are hickory shafts, so I'd be suprised if they needed much reinforcement.
I use two hack saw blades taped together to get the initial shape, but it still comes down to a ton of filing.
Welcome :) Doing a bow is hard, even if for some is just bending a branch and going for it. And from that image I can see you know your art (doing a bow requires knowledge and requires artist eyes). Very nice. You make your shelf flat or a bit roundish? I couldn't see it from the pics
RufusScorpius: Wasn't looking to buy another sword at the moment, but it's a special run of only 15 and the price is crazy low. So WTH, why not? I could always use another sword.

RufusScorpius: Don't know about degeneracy, but I am a bilingual illiterate. I can't read or write in two foreign languages

Ouroboros: U calling me linguistically degenerate in a specific declining trajectory? Themselves be fightin words semprini master

AndiTheBarvarian: Indeed I sometimes find myself thinking "oh, semprini!" when something goes wrong.

treeslicer: You have to admit, it's a simple and all-purpose pejorative; "Go semprini yourself, you semprini-faced sack of semprini!!" Obviously in tune with the direction that linguistic degeneracy is heading in.

AndiTheBarvarian: 100 years in the future I see people wondering at what the origin of that dirty and offending "s"-word was...

MOK: It is! I'll grant that it may be hard to tell sometimes because, of course, the filter replaces all naughty words with "semprini".

demented: Semprini should be censored too at this point
Jul 13, 2020 16:10:38 GMT
RufusScorpius: Ok guys. Please use the word "semprini" in it's correct context or I will have to report you to the moderators. A semprini is not a joke, so please use it responsibly.
