LONGBOWS

 

Our standard longbows are made from locally-sourced Hickory, backed with a premium strip of quarter-sawn Hickory for added durability and performance.  We also make bows using various combinations of Hickory, Bamboo, Ipe, Purple Heart, and Bloodwood, depending on the availability of materials.

Our standard “off the hand” style handle is suitable for both left and right handed archers. We also also offer arrow shelves for a small additional cost. 

Each bow comes with a quality bowstring with serving, a canvas carrying case, a bow-stringer, and detailed use and maintenance instructions.

Longbow prices range from approximately $300 to $700, depending on the type(s) of wood, artwork, etc.  In-stock bows are listed in our online shop, or feel free to contact us for more information on custom orders.

Caledonian Bow

Hickory-backed Hickory, This design is inspired by the Caledonii - the ancient inhabitants of northern Scotland. Also known as the Picts, or “Painted People," they often decorated their bodies with tattoos and dyes. Our Caledonian bow features Pictish knotwork over natural hickory. The designs are painted in blue, like the woad dye used by the Picts for clothing and war paint. The finished bow is then sealed with a satin finish.
