With each bow is a booklet containing advice on the best way to use and look after wooden bows. Storage and care in use are vital to get a long working life out of a bow. If not used for an extended period the bow needs to be treated "as new" and gently exercised prior to use. Wooden bows, being made from natural materials, can and will sometimes break. We provide a warranty to cover the repair or replacement of a bow within the warranty period. We are not responsible for return carriage costs or any other consequential loss, damage or injury which could occur when using our bows, as we have no control over the situations or circumstances under which equipment is kept, treated and used. Wooden bows have been in use for many thousands of years and few, if any, breakages have caused any injury to either the archer or any bystanders. We are proud that we do have a very low rate of breakage, under 2% of our production, nobody has been injured by any of our bows breaking

We make a wide range of Classic longbows using many Traditional woods and several woods that we have recently found to be very good bow woods. The range of materials on offer is very much determined by their availability and will vary from time to time. It is always a good idea to contact us to discuss your needs such that we can design and build you your ideal bow from the best available materials. Typically we will be making the following range of bows
