Another sweet bow.  I like your work on the leather wrap.  57#@28"  WOW even in my prime @27 years old and doing pic and shovel work back then I would of had a hard time pulling over 55#.  I must be a whimp.  Don't know how you guys do it.

Wow! another beauty!
I like the handle shape - is the bow symmetric?

I love your work sir! Please don't be offended when I copy your painted boarders for the skins. I love the detailed art work.

what paint do you use at the edge of the skin?  I am sure you have answered that before, but I forget.
