My most recent recurve, BowCote, is finished.  It's the newest bow in a line focused on the simplicity and beauty of the wood from which they're made.  BowCote's riser wood, as the name suggests, is Bacote, a South American tropical hardwood with inimitable grain and character.  It's that character that I want to speak for itself, which is why I left the riser simple, as one solid piece with no additional strips or accents, the only deviation being the brass medallion with the Brooklyln Bowyer logo.  It shoots 40# @ 28" with an AMO of 62" making it a smooth shooter with almost no stacking.


Gizmo is now up for sale!  After seeing just how beautiful this African Rosewood is, I decided to make the riser one solid piece as opposed to adding accents, which gives the final product an elegant simplicity that I couldn't be more pleased with.  The handle section has a built-in cant and a hint of a thumb rest to increase comfort in the hand.  Thin strips of the same piece of African Rosewood overlay the limb tips for added beauty.  I couldn't be more pleased with how Gizmo looks and shoots.

Introducing Mrs. Rabbit

The newest addition to the collection and up for sale now is Mrs. Rabbit.  This one is an Osage Orange reflex-deflex longbow, backed with Hickory.  The riser, which I chose to contour more than most, gives a sense of familiarity for easier consistency of hand placement shot to shot.  The red Paduak wood is stunning.  So much so that my camera has a hard time not auto adjusting to the point where the colors look hyper-saturated (even for this colorblind guy).  I did something new on the tips in that I shaped the buffalo horn into an ever-so-slight recurve, with small grooves down the belly for the string.  I also narrowed the material on the ends of the limbs to a bare minimum.  That in combination with the reflex and the natural superiority of Osage Orange make this bow a fast shooter, despite it's low draw weight.  All this to say: I'm very pleased with how Mrs. Rabbit turned out.
