About Our Handcrafted Bows

I am passionate about making quality handmade bows and arrows, and so it has become my artform.

All of the self bows here are crafted true to primitive methods, following the growth rings of the wood. They are handcrafted from seasoned staves and include an a braintanned leather handle with arrow rest and fur silencers.

These bows are very quiet, with a smooth draw and low handshock for the discerning archer. This is accomplished by using subtle engineering to lower limb mass, and using an asymmetrical tiller (one barely noticeable in most cases) to redistribute handshock.

A wooden bow is very light in the hand, but the strength of the wood is surprising when put to the test.

Take care of these bows, and they will give many years of rugged service.
