Good looking fork brother.

IMHO, I have found the longer the forks are, the more torque and strain on the wrist created ?
I personally would probably shorten those a bit.
A lanyard also helps to reduce a lot of the fork torque.

Nice looking fork. What kind of wood is it? Is it dry or green? I am with those who suggested cutting it down, I think it will be a better shooter.

Not sure of the wood type,the bark was rotted so it left the wood dark.Thanks everyone for the advice,I was thinking about trimming the forks a bit.

If you can take a close up pic or two, I might be able to I.D. it for you. ( Maybe)

Take a pic of the end grain when your working on it. Sometimes that's all that's needed.
