Re: [SCA-Archery] Bowyer's knot
- I have been using a Bowyer's Knot for about five years and have only had one slip, that is because it wasn't a Bowyers Knot, it was something else that slipped as the was got hot. They do get a little ratty looking , but that doesn't hurt anything.Ld. Eduard deWitte,Order of the Kings Missiliers, AtlantianOrder of the Yeoman of the Sacred Stone,House Askoldsson
