Stratton Hill-style longbows
Høyre- eller venstrebue: Er du høyrehendt skal du ha høyre bue. Du holder da buen med venstre hånd og trekker strengen med høyre hånd. Pilen blir dermed liggende på buens venstre side. Er du venstrehendt blir det omvendt.
Steve has been making bows for many years. Initially his interest was in the heavy draw weight longbows used during the 100 years war to the Tudor period. Steve was responsible for the re-introduction og High Altitude Alpine Yew from Italy to bow making. He was fortunate enough to have been given unlimited access by the late Andrew Elkerton to the bows recovered from the Tudor ship ‘’The Mary Rose’’ which resulted in Steve taking detailed measurements of most of the bows in the collection and enabling him to make accurate replicas. Steve was also one of the original group og archers who set up the World Traditional Archery (formally ETAS) and also EWBS (The English Warbow society). Steve enjoys shooting and making all types of bows.
