Got a message over Facebook today, this is my new bow in the works, ready for tillering.

It’s in the Hedeby/Ballinderry style and is suited for my period. It’s going to draw between 80-85lbs@28” hopefully with some overdraw. Made out of Australian Pink Ash.

This is the first viking thing I’ve posted personally in a while, so I’ll update when I can.

With thanks to Outlaw Bows for making this beautiful piece of art.

I bought the head from a friend of mine Ulf Eriksson, a Swedish Australian blacksmith who has an Etsy store here:

For most of my sharp stuff I go to him, with the exception of my sharp sword and spear as he doesn’t do those…yet…

He made my seax and my axe seen on the left.

Maybe one day I’ll be able to convince him to make a langseax like the one I use in combat.

I found this at the Abbey tournament, unfortunately $540 is way too much for a helmet right now.
