MORE ABOUT US: Traditional Longbow making is an art and many may feel
that it is beyond their talent. This is not true, most of us have the ability to
make a traditional longbow or even longbows; we just don’t have the confidence or maybe the facilities.
We at traditional longbow are here to help make those longbows that you want. We
give you as much information in the workshop as you request; we can provide
your longbow to you, at any stage of completion; from stave making materials, to make your own
stave, complete staves and partly worked staves; all with a package of
materials to instruct you and ensure you can complete those horn nocks, arrow
plate and handle. Along with a great book to fill in all of the details you
need for traditional longbow making, we can provide custom longbows to those that simply
don’t have the time.
LONGBOWS are great! You know that, and so do we.
Unlike any other piece of archery equipment the traditional longbow is the only one that
makes you feel like a master; when you get it right. Longbows can challenge
your strength but always your mind. At Modern
Longbow we want this to continue; if you are not strong don’t worry. We believe
longbows should always challenge your mind first, not your stature. Longbows are
a craft, it is not an exclusive craft to those that can draw great weight, it
challenges you to the core; you the bow and the need! Whichever opportunity we
offer, and you select, we will support you through your efforts. Our workshop
is an expression of your longbow requirements and is driven by you. Talk to us
about your longbows and we will add information to the workshop for all.
ARCHERY EQUIPMENT: Some archery equipment is often ignored,
for example, shooting gloves, bracers and even bow bags. Your bow bag is simple
pieces of equipment: How suitable is it for the purpose? Does your bow bag breath?
Does it have a built in string keeper? The shooting glove is often ignored
since it is there only to protect your fingers, is it not? These are details; ignore
these archery equipment details and miss a great archery experience. This experience
is described in the book Modern longbow Toxophilus, A Voice from the Past. The great
words from this past philosopher is what we want to introduce to out archery
equipment, keep coming back to find them in our shop.
