    Hello John,
    Sorry respond you so late.
    Mr. Zhang Li do NOT make horn bows. Only Mr. Gao Xiang or Mr. Yang Fuxi (who come from Juyuanhao bow & arrows workshop) can make traditional horn bows in China (mainland). Sure Mr. Yuhua Jang (or called as Zhang Yuhua who lived in Taiwan) is good at this too, and Mr. Jang is better than Mr. Gao or Mr. Yang in making some type of traditional horn bows. (It is only my personal opinion.) If you still want to get one Chinese traditional horn bow, I can forward your message to Mr. Gao or Mr. Yang. I had no contact information of Mr. Jang Yuhua now.
    Best regards,
    Sherman
