'AMARANTH' ENGLISH LONGBOW

'Amaranth' English longbows are made to the British Long-Bow Society specification, with horn nocks and the prescribed 'D' section. (Other styles are available, please contact me to discuss these via the link below.)

Several important stages in building the stave, and careful training to bend, ensure these laminated longbows are a good combination of speed and shootability. These are amongst the best performing bows on the scene!

Materials vary according to availability, and include:
lemonwood, purpleheart, black walnut, pequia, greenheart etc.

Backing is usually bamboo, but hickory is also available.

Leather bound handle and horn arrowplate.

Supplied complete with Dacron string and stringer. Length and draw-weight (up to 80lb) are to suit the archer.

PRICE : £360

'SELF' YEW LONGBOWS
When suitable seasoned yew is available, 'self' yew longbows start at £700 (pictured right)
