Forging a BOW out of Rusted Leaf SPRING

Alright, This Bow took me one month to make and this was not easy to make it such perfect. A lot of my Fans asked me to make Bow so i tried to make most perfect Bow that i can.

Overall Length: 40 Inches
Handle Length: 10 Inches
Stretched Length: 35 Inches

All the Processes are below of making this beautiful Bow:
It took me almost two days to prepare and hand forge Leaf Spring piece into a long Steel Strip and this was my most complicated forging ever. I don't have any serious equipment so all the forging as well as hot metal bending i did with my hands and turned a spring piece into an 40 inches metal strip.
I make most of grindings of bent strip with my Angle grinder and turned the strip into a well shaped workpiece. I also
did a lot of hand sanding with a help of abrasive to remove the edges and almost all the roughness of the blank.
v. I made grooves on Limbs with the help of round file.
v. Hand Sanded the surface to remove roughness.
v. The recurve made on special device which delivers energy more efficiently.
There is a professional way to harden a
Bow and that is
Heating the whole surface placed into a Fire evenly to a critical temperature. After that Quench the heated detail in oil. Now the Steel is hard but Fragile. Tempering is the best way to increase Toughness of the bow.
This piece may be made of any fiber twisted into a single cord but we can also make it by use synthetic winding around linen thread. The purpose of bowstring is to join the two ends and launch the arrow.
The Handle contains of three parts.
v. LEATHER: Purpose of leather is to hold the handle with the steel part , I used soft leather for wrapping.
v. Copper: Thin metal strips of copper turned into a beautiful decoration that separates the handle and curve.
v. Wood: A piece of oak wood is nice for the handle which could be fixed with some leather strips.

    It's a beautiful work of art , you should be proud of it. I'm a Bowyer but have never thought about using steel for the bow limbs. I make traditional archery bows made of wood. It pays to think outside the box.

    Beautyful Bow I think it will shake a lot when the arrow takes of. My experience in metal bow was ether heavy shaking or even hard shocks in when the draw of ends. I give up seeing that a real heavy arrow gives a smoother shot but bow and arrow are way to heavy to hold it to aim... And the force to pull was increasing way to heavy, the string finger cutting... My one was more an expander for bow mucle training... And totally ugly next to this one^^

    You are a master craftsman. Your metal bow looks great, but I thing it can never compete with a wooden or composit bow. The distance between string and handle is to short. You will hurt yourself, when you shoot this bow. The distance should be at lest 6 inches. Good luck!

    Единственный минус который я нашёл, это то что тетива расположена слишком близко к рукояти, из за этого в момент выстрела может прилететь по руке. Да и в видео автор не показывал лук в момент выстрела, и я думаю именно по этой причине.

    I gave you a dislike and subscribed to your channel. And here’s why I did that: You took the wrong approach in building the bowstring. You should have done a continuous loop. Much safer and stronger. You took the wrong approach in building your arrow. You failed to mention the draw weight of your bow, and that was the sole reason I watched it all. Draw weight gives a bow purpose: hunting, target shooting, or recreational use (short range low accuracy shooting). But you made an awesome looking bow, you took an innovative approach to an historic replica bow type, and you are highly skilled. So for that 👏 👏 👏. I love when someone takes an innovative approach to an old craft, such as making replica bows. When it is the right approach (not like the strings). I am looking forward to see more bold undertakings like this. I like most of your vids, but as and archer, I have to point out the good with the bad. Keep up the good work!

    the re-curve on a bow occurs due to the string tension and it is not the natural shape of the bow without the string. This bow will have a poor Draw. this is like a Dress sword - functional and beautiful, but not a weapon of war.
