RE: [SCA-Archery] Bowyer's knot frequency
- I sell all my bowstrings as 1 loop and a knot. Done right it is perfectly
fine, done wrong well It will quickly need to be done right.
I am in the east kingdom and have seen it many time on other bows not
related to anyone I have had a hand in teaching or equipping.
The know will work well on almost any kind of bow, I have used them on
recurves and longbows and flat bows, I will not work well on a mongol style
bow with siyah's though.
A good link for a boyers knot is....

Subject: [SCA-Archery] Bowyer's knot frequency
In Calontir, I see most often flemish twisted bowstring ends on both
sides, and less often but still frequently an endless string. It is
rare that I see a bowyer's knot, don't use it myself, and as a
marshall would question the archer if one took it to the line. (Please
note I said question, not reject it out of hand).
How often is it seen in other kingdoms?
