Sir Jon, I don t know if you know this good gentle or not, but he made me a bow last year. Lemonwood with hickory back, horn nocked DMessage 1 of 6 , Oct 2, 2001View SourceSir Jon,
I don't know if you know this good
gentle or not, but he made me a bow last year. Lemonwood with hickory
back, horn nocked D section that works entirely through the handle. It
is made to the finished quality of my old Don Adams (which I wish I
still had and can't afford to replace) The Steve Ralphs is 93#@ 28" and
it shoots like a good dream. He is very amicable and SCA friendly, he
belongs to a history recreation group in UK. A number of East Kingdom
archers have ordered from him after seeing my bow. I had him make me his
top-of-the-line with the extra weight and length (it's 76" long) with
the exchange rate and the shipping it came to about $300.00+ US. A lot
better than the $1200.00 for a new one from Don Adams.(pricewise, that
is, although Steve's quality is up there.) Respectfully,
Lord Geoffrei St. Albans of Eastwood

Whoops! I need to reword my post. I am looking for names of SCA makers of crossbows and longbows at this time. However, reconmendations for mundane makersMessage 1 of 6 , Oct 2, 2001View SourceWhoops! I need to reword my post. I am looking for names of SCA makers of
crossbows and longbows at this time. However, reconmendations for mundane makers
will also be taken and listed.
