Traditional English Longbows

Our Traditional English Longbows can be made from a single piece of timber or multiple pieces of timber to create a laminate bow. Made to the 5/8 rule they are legal to shoot in all competitions.

We also use bamboo in the construction if required, this gives the bow a slimmer profile and faster cast due to the reduced limb weight.

Small horn nocks, leather stitched grip and fastflight string.

Bows are glued up with a 2″ forward set which makes the bow shoot faster and reduces string follow.

Finished with an oil or varnish finish, the choice is yours.
