This is currently my favourite bow. Made by bowyer Johan Van Der Merwe from Combretum Bows in South Africa. I found a lovely solid dark heavy block of wood whilst on vacation in Mozambique.It was cut into a long rectangle.I bought it for R100. I,at the time did not know what I would use it for,maybe a knife handle or 10.It lay at my house for around seven months.One weekend I went to visit Johan at his farm in Rust De Winter.Here he showed me his very first prototype take-down recurve.Right there and then I knew what wood would be used for the riser.Johan collected that block of wood from me and made me a great looking bow.The wood of the riser looks like Mozambique ironwood. I originally had it made with 52#limbs and later had a set of 80# made for buffalo and giraffe. The limbs in the pics are the 52# ones.We have also changed the finish on the riser to matt.The pics are from when I collected the bow originally.
