We have had two reviews by Steve Nicholson at Archers Review:
Laminate Yew/Bamboo Longbow
The bow is a masterpiece - the bow is a cannon - it is the smoothest, fastest most wonderful English Longbow this enthusiast has ever shot...possibly the best longbow since 1415.
Yew Self Longbow
I found the guy that has the skill, that has access to superior quality Yew, and that has the willingness to invest himself in making self bows...the most beautiful bow I have ever seen.
Collaboration between Jamie MacDonald & Jeremy Humpherville. Jamie built these two west coast style paddle bows and Jeremy finished them with some stunning west coast artwork.
