I have tweeked my recurves with sinew and skins on...your not tempering it, just get it too hot to touch and shift it in the direction she needs to go a little past it actually and hold till it cools..shouldn't be that far off anyway....gut

sorry Eric, I must not have been clear. The string is staying on the bow, it's just going off beside of the recurve, rather than staying in the groove

A little tweeking the tips with heat is in order.

Luke, tweek with dry heat just at the start of the bend towards the handle, adding heat to the recurved area will pull out some of your curve.
