Yew has long been regarded as natures most perfect bow material
having natural elasticity, sweetness of draw and cast second to none. Bows
are made from matched pairs of billets, spliced together at the handle,
perfect pairs of billets are extremely rare, consequently no two self yew
bows will look the same as the skill of the Bowyer is used to follow the
undulations of the sap wood and the heartwood, raise pins as necessary
and produce a bow of character and beauty. We import all our Yew from Oregon
where it is harvested from the Cascade Mountains for us by one of Americas
leading traditional archery experts. Materials
are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain for this type of bow, therefore
delivery times and availability can vary, please phone if interested in
