Made to British Long-Bow Society specification with the correct high stacked 'D' section
 'Amaranth' English longbows are made to the British Long-Bow Society specification, with horn nocks and the prescribed 'STACKED D' section.
See British Long-Bow Society specification
Several important stages in building the stave, and careful training to bend ensure these laminated longbows are a good combination of speed and shootability.

Custom made triple laminate longbows

My bows are made to suit the archer's drawlength and shooting style, whether you are a target, field or flight archer -or all three.
You can enjoy most styles of competition with a longbow!
Pictured are longbows just before final test shooting and polishing, all bows are tested through a chronograph.


Materials vary according to availability, and include:
lemonwood, purpleheart, black walnut, pequia, greenheart, ipe etc.
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.
Three laminations with a lemonwood or boxwood belly, a hardwood core and  bamboo back -I have been using bamboo for over 15 years and find it sweet to draw -and attractive with the nodes remaining. Nocks and arrow plate are horn as standard.
Grips are leather bound (unless requested otherwise) black or dark tan .
