Well you know bows like your making there could be past to generation after another in the durability catagory I think.Doing 1 horn bow is a big effort.Doing 2 is quite a bit more yet.Thanks for taking us on your journey.

Sheephorn bows continue to cure into reflex. More sinew was added to the limbs as well as the handle area.  I want to be darn sure that splice holds.  I also wrapped the limb ends for good measure. Gonna give it a bit longer then start slowly and gently flexing them.
