    Hedeby viking longbow. Out of Osage

    I figured Iíd show off this one too. Itís a style based off bows found in Hedeby during the Viking age. Itís a pretty close replica, except that itís made of Osage instead of yew, elm, or ash. And draws only 50# instead of about 100#. The biggest differences between a Viking longbow and an English longbow, is the long bracing levers past the nocks, and they used single side nocks without Horn tips. I used the horns of Odin and jumis symbols to mark the center point on both the back and belly. I imbedded charcoal into parallel grooves to mark the arrow pass area. The bow is only 7/8Ē wide at its widest tapering to 3/8Ē at the tips. Itíll shoot about 140fps with a 625gr arrow and is very quiet when doing so.


    Thanks for looking,
    Kyle
