Got this as a gift for a close friend. Got there promptly, and all looks amazing. Really well made.

I am so pleased to have this bow and assortment of arrows. I will be using it in a classroom setting (my courses have a significant component of learning about history/literature through material culture) and the bow and arrows will be very helpful for this. Also, it is beautiful.
What Dictates the Price of my bows
One major factor is the price of materials. For example, a substantial piece of yew wood can cost as much $400 or as little as $40 depending on the quality, length, and clarity of the wood.
Lastly, you are paying for the labor that it takes to make the bows. It takes me “approximately” 20 hours to make any bow. The reason why I specify the word approximately is sometimes the wood presents certain problems such as twists, knots, etc. which increase the time because I have to work around such anomalies or flaws in order to make the bow perform to the best of its ability.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Bowyer
I started bow making at the age of 15. However the seeds for bow making were laid when I was about 13 when I tried to get back into archery after a long absence where I was only shooting maybe once or twice a year.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
The first time that a bow is broken or bounced (failed safety inspection) through a perceivable error on the part of the bowyer (myself) I will replace the bow with no charge to you. For the second bow and beyond, within that one year period, I will still replace bows, but I will request materials fees, but not a fee for labor and shipping if the bow was flawed.
Additionally, at the time of your purchase, we will go over what is expected of you as the archer in order to fill the warranty and what is expected of me as the bow maker to make sure that you are satisfied with the bow and any replacements that may be necessary.
As far as the Method of Shipment I package my bows in plastic Drainage pipe which durable and hardy and works well for Bow cases too. If you have a deadline such as a birthday let me know and I can send the bow priority, but it most certainty cost more to ship.
Customs does not seem to be a problem but I have not shipped many bows out of the country. That Said I ship them titled as Sports Equipment.
When ever I ship my bows I ship them with a tracking number which I will share with you so we an both see when you bow has arrived.
