    I have a pair of older bows, ~1950s?, that have horn tips. One is a hickory longbow with the name Wilcox stamped on it. It is simple but nice. The other is a lemonwood longbow takedown. The takedown is done with steel cylinders, making the grip perfectly round. The horn tips on the lemonwood...
