Leon-Stewart-Workshop2Forty years ago, my Uncle Paul Stewart handed me a fiberglass longbow, a back quiver, and few dusty arrows he had in a corner of his den. From that day forward, I was hooked on shooting a bow. Loving archery as much as I did, I stayed with the sport. Later I graduated to a Pearson recurve and then a Bear recurve, I hunted with a compound bow for only two seasons. Too much went wrong, and too many complications.

Leon-Stewart-Workshop3In 1982 on of my best friends Mark Shellenberger, offered to let me shoot a beautiful bamboo longbow he had made for himself. Needless to say I fell in love with longbows and traditional archery. Shortly thereafter, he taught me to build longbows the right way, and I’ve been doing it that way ever since. Doesn’t it seem ironic, that what worked so well for me when I started out is exactly what I’m using today in the “modern times”.

handleAs you peruse through my site I hope that you enjoy reading about the various bows, it has been a great journey from the inception of the “Classic Longbow” steeped in all the traditional romance of the stick and string to my most recent creation the “Slammer Special”. The journey however has not ended.
