Shaped after a Unique Antique Manchu Qing bow we own, creating the limbs after masters bowyers of days gone by, we have made this Manchu bow.
The Stringbridges or stools are shaped after ancient descriptions in the shape of a Silver Ingot.
This bow has the bridges attached and bound with faux sinew. The bow is finished in a semigloss varnish and comes with a fitting endless B-50 served string and bow bag.
These bows are weighed at 36 inches!
These bows will comfortably do 36 inches.
Manchu Bows are known for the difficulty in stringing them, and the need for very heavy arrows (at least 10 grain per pound). Damage due to twisting or torquing during bracing or shooting the bow is not covered by our warranty. we strongly advise against the 'kathra motions'.
