Gemsbok horn long bow
About our long bows.
We have been creating bows for over 30 years. Our bows have been featured in some major films. Having started out making gemsbok bows after learning about the history of the "original" long bows from Central Africa, we do not pretend to be bow makers, instead we have created with the materials available to us an organic instrument that "can" be functional but we make them as display or cosplay weapons. We have never had a bow made by us, that was purchased, come back broken. The gemsbok horns have become difficult to obtain that could be made into a useful bow.
Rabbit fur wrapped gemsbok horn long bow. Set for curing with 12 strands of twisted sinew. brown leather at the hand rest and horse tail hair hanging on either end.
The metal we use is a fine pewter that is lead free. For anyone with metal allergies please see our FAQ page for full details.
