Youth/Ladies Hickory Long Bow


Hick Flatbow 1000


Primitives bows are primarily made on a Hickory stave to allow a quality bow of a reasonable price.   The youth and ladies longbow is a bit shorter than the full adult version to allow a lighter draw to meet the general needs of the smaller SCA or Medieval archer.

The competitive requirements of most primitive or historical archery events allow only bows of all wood, and usually backing of only natural North American materials.  Bows cannot have arrow shelves either cut in or added on the outside.  Strings cannot have servings or nock points.  We make our primitive bowstrings from artificial sinew with a ‘flemish braid’ upper loop and the lower end is tied to the bow with a boyer’s knot or timber hitch. These strings are of Dacron, so are as strong as B-50, yet meet all primitive requirements unless the competition requires completely natural string material.  We have complained of this requirement to a number of primitive event holders for safety reasons.  Artificial sinew is much less prone to stretching or breaking as materials such as linen or true sinew.

Youth and ladies longbows are offered in 66″ and 68″ length and draw weights from 25 to 40 lbs.
