  3. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Bjorn, wonderful, wonderful, true woodcraft.

  4. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    I was fascinated watching the bow come to shape Bjorn, now to watch your arrow making. Very good viewing Thanks mate

  5. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    How long did it take you to make this if I may ask?

  6. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Amazing, where did you learn these skills?

  7. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    What are the measurements?

  8. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    How much will it cost a bow like that?

  9. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Greattt!!!

  10. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Outstanding👍👍

  11. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Very nice Bjorn do you hunt with that bow?

  12. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    2:36 I've never seen this tool. What is it called? Is this just a scraper? Awesome skills!

  13. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Nice work! I've been making bows for 20 years and I just wanted to mention that Elm is the only wood (that I know of) that you can peel when still wet and the exposed surface won't check/crack. All other hardwood species need to be dried first before you scrape off the bark. Fyi.

  15. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Paleowolf in the background completes the ambient. Greetings to my european brother

    It is good to know that my ancestors' knowledge of how to make weapons is still being used today.

  23. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Do you ever sell any of the bows you make? I like to collect and use traditional style bows from the old cultures all over. I do not have a viking bow yet.

    The English longbow was the most powerful bow in the medieval period

  27. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

  28. April 3, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Awesome video!!
    I am interested in everything that has to do with Vikings, in recent years, since I moved to Spangereid, Lindesnes, with many viking finds. And the famous bow competition between Olav Tryggvason and Einar Tambarskjelve.
    And now I found your video on how to make a viking bow. Thank you so much.
    – Jeg skal ut i skogen for å finne meg et brukbart Barlind emne. Slik at det kan tørke fint til våren. Tror du det er lang nok tørketid? Eller skal jeg vente til februar, da det er kaldest?
