I just finished reading a very good book on how to make American Indian
bows. (It was the only thing that my library had.) And in it, it
mentions that if you back a bow with sinew it will make it a reflex bow.
I was wondering if there were any reflex bows in our period of study. I
would assume that there is, because of the fact that when you back with
sinew it makes it reflex. Also I was wondering if someone could give me
a brief description on how you make the handle for an english style bow
(where the handle is offset so you shoot it with the bow straight up and
down.) And since I am asking I might as well post one more little
quandary that I have. I was wondering how the string was attached to the
bow. Did they use nocks, or just tie it. If they used nocks what shape
were they generally. Thank you in advance for any information that you
can give. I am trying to get a hold of the Bowyer's Bible and such, but
that might not happen for quite a while, and likely not at all.
Have a nice day!!!
