72" Tri-Lam Unfinished Hickory Ipe LongbowItem Number: 86001X
A great longbow is made with care and craftsmanship. But even the greatest bowyers need to start with quality materials. Use the 72" Tri-Lam Unfinished Hickory Ipe Longbow blank to give your next bow building project a quality kick-start.
The tri-lam longbow is a highly prized bow, and making one is a difficult skill to master. This longbow blank has already started most of the hard work. The belly and backing are made from quality hickory, while the core is reliable Ipe.
All you have to do is sand the edges, install the bow tips, and do the final tiller. The blank already has a shelf cut in, which you can sand to your preference. It is recommended that you put on a finish when done.
Requires the following tools: Super Glue (for gluing on the bow tips), Rasp, Flat File, Nock Groove File, Square, and Pencil. See 3Rivers Archery's Bow Building Tool Kit.
We recommend Phenolic Bow Tip Overlays to complete your bow. A Flemish twist bow string and tillering rope are included.
Sold in weights of 30-35, 35-40, 40-45, and 45-50# @ 28" in right or left handed. Please specify.
