The Viking bows we made are inspired by the famous Hedeby bows (Haithabu) . At Hedeby some longbows were found with similar characteristics. The Viking bows have a side nock at the top and a glued notch at the bottom nock. Our Viking bows are tillered to come round compass and are usually made from one single piece of Hickory
The viking bows are usually 76 inches (tip to tip) long and fit for a max draw length of 32 inch.
The easy stave for the guys who would like to do just the sanding and finish work. An easy wood working delight without the worry of finishing the tillering to draw weight. This solid hickory bow is tillered to the specified draw weight and all you do is apply some elbow grease on sanding it smooth and putting a beautiful finish on. That's what we call a basic bow! You just need to put a finish on! The bow comes complete with B-50 Dacron Flemish inlaid string.
