Damascus tab

KidCurry shoots three under string walking. The metal peg is not for the purpose of separating his fingers for Mediterranean style, that's why it's just a peg rather than a finger spacer. I believe, from my failing memory, that he uses it as a locator to ensure that the tab is in the correct vertical position, which is important when string walking as moving the tab up or down in your hand is the equivalent of moving your sights. I suspect it also helps with any tendency for the tab to rotate. After he initially put one onto his Spigarelli tab, I tried the same on my barebow tab and it greatly improves tab stability.

Oh. I've never heard of doing that.
I tried split-finger tabs, but the top bit is flimsy, so not good for string-walking. Maybe this helps work around that.
I don't need split-finger so far. The furthest I can shoot at our range is sixty yards.
In all honesty, I'm not keen on the trade-off (number of arrows shot/distance walked) past sixty yards. Enjoying being back to twenty yards. In my hour and a half shooting, I can comfortably shoot seventy-eight arrows. If i was shooting fifty metres, or sixty yards, I'd probably only get to shoot about forty-two, or forty-eight arrows.

Interesting - ok - makes sense.
I made an assumption. :)

Will it not corrode? Or does it have stainless properties?
Looks great, by the way,
It is a mix of different metals. It can corrode if not looked after but no different from any carbon steel knife.
