Then kabza are attached with soft material for archer comforts.Then the bellies are wrapped with black leather leather. The wrapping at arrow zone are using soft goat leather with lustre applied as protective element. Dried sinew are kassan tip are applied for strengthen to nock during release to prevent crack in shear failure of wood grain. It prepared traditionally for as ancient method of application. Yes seem to be easy but need more skill to get in workable.
Like the ancient bows, these modern-ancient ones are made without arrow rests. So will be used right- or left- handed. Most folk use a leather glove to protect were the arrow passes over the side of the bow hand. Yeah definitely you may use either Thumb or Mediterranean draw. By smooth draw your release is easy and the energy goes into the arrow. Well say no stack at even 28″ draw length.
Finally this bow has been made with Inner Heart of passion!
