This is The Primitive model. This is the Quintessential model of bow for a true primitive bow.

Quite literally putting the Primitive back in primitive archery, they perhaps lack the creature comforts of a fancy customized bow, but these are purpose build, true primitive hunting bows.  Each bow is made to weight and draw length order from a perfectly seasoned stave of Osage orange (Maclura Pomifera) , the king of bow woods! The limbs are elegantly simply; straight with no reflex added, yet still carry the slight distinct wiggles and pin knots expected in a true primitive, hand made bow. The wood is chemically patina’d rather than stained, so it boasts beautiful tone with no over-exposed grain lines from using an oil based stain. The grips are wrapped in a smoked-buckskin-colored deer skin, and the strings are primitively twisted from your choice of modern b-50 dacron, or super primitive, twisted rawhide. There is no arrow shelf on these bows and are to be shot off knuckle just as the ancients did. Typically these bows can be shot either right or left handed. The tips come in either a smaller Cherokee inspired diamond nock, or in a tear drop shaped nock. Lengths vary depending on draw length selected, but average lengths run about 66″ long for a 28″ draw.

Simply put, if you want a serious but primitively themed hunting bow, with the best warranty in the business (2 years full replacement, lifetime on repairs) (Rawhide Strings do not carry a warranty)
