PADRE ISLAND BOW

In the shop we refer to these delicate little Spanish bows as “padres.'' The small versions were light sporting or cavalry bows. Many of them saw use in the conquest of the New World, from 1492 on. They generally run from 28 to 32 inches in length. Our pattern is taken from the remains of a bow found in a 1554 galleon wreck on Padre Island, in south Texas. The Albuquerque Museum (New Mexico) has a good example of the larger medium-weight military bow in the same style. It is perhaps thirty-four inches long.

STANDARD CHOICES (?): Walnut, cherry or oak wood for main body

AVAILABLE OPTION UPGRADES (?): Basic sight, Renaissance sight, bow irons, bone overlay, inlet bone bolt groove, laminated wood prod, tung oil finish, goats foot cocking lever
