You could wrap it with art. sinew, B 50, serving material or something similar. In order for a 58 in board bow to survive a 28 in draw even if backed it must be straight grained tip with no run outs and your tiller has to be picture perfect. My guess is the root cause of the splinter is poor grain with run outs. You can’t replace wood on the back of the bow. The repair that Dean wrote about was to fix the belly after it chrysalled if I remember correctly. Jawge
