Scythian bow

This man is an amazing bowyer, just thought I'd share for anyone who had not seen his channel. He has several other bow builds besides this one. The native american horn bow was another really interesting one.

Just watched both videos. Amazing stuff!
Really interesting watching the whole process by hand.
I find it fascinating how that method of bow construction must have evolved. An example of how people in days of old had a great knowledge of the materials available, their properties, and how to work them.

I saw those before.  Very interesting to see the whole process using traditional techniques like that!
