Daniels Custom Longbow
Daniel ordered another bow through one of our distributors South by Southwest in Idaho Springs, Colorado. Daniel bought one of our Series II bows a couple months ago and thought it was the smoothest bow that he had ever shot. So he decided to order a 90# Longbow from Smokey River Bows. Daniel said, “That his new custom longbow is just as smooth feeling if not smoother than his Series II Takedown Recurve bow from Smokey River Bows”.
Makore is reddish brown commonly with a wavy grain pattern, although the grain can be straight. Unlike Oak, Makore has a fine texture with closed pores, giving it a lustrous shine naturally. Makore is generally easy to work with even though it is an exotic hardwood.
We paired this beautiful exotic hardwood with another beautiful and exotic hardwood, Purpleheart. My wife, Vivian, was immediately drawn to the intense purple color and could imagine all sorts of amazing color combinations and creations.
unlike Makore,which is from Western and Middle Africa, Purpleheart is from Central and South America (from Mexico down to Brazil). Similar to Makore, Purpleheart has a nice texture with small pores. It’s grain is usually straight, but can also be wavy (very much the same as Makore except for their tremendously vibrant color differences).
Daniels Custom Longbow is two unique woods combined to make a one of a kind, stunning to look at, durable, high performance, bow!
