Traditional Archery

Whether you are old or young, it does not matter if you are entirely new to the world of archery or if you are a seasoned professional, Dark Knight Armoury carries the bows, arrows, and archery based accessories to keep you supplied with almost anything and everything you might need to continue your practice of archery. Whether you need bows, arrows, or accessories, you have come to the right place. One cannot practice archery without a bow and we have an impressive variety of bows for the intrepid archer to choose from. If you want to fire a historical bow, then you can chose from our wide variety of historically accurate bows, including English Longbows, Japanese Yumi, Native American Bows, Recurve Bows, and Horse Bows. Or if you were seeking something with a little more of a fantasy touch, we also have Elven Bows, Ranger Bows, and several other fantasy themed bows all of which are fully functional. Every bow you find here in Dark Knight Armourys Archery section is a fully functional bow that is designed to be used. And many of our bows come in several varieties of pull weights and draw lengths, ensuring that no matter the archer, there is a bow suitable for their specifications. For LARP archers we have LARP bows that are suitable for use against others during a LARP. And for the young archer, we have several bows and accessories that are suited just for them. We have arrows suitable for both hunting and target practice, and we have them all in styles that range from historically accurate to fantasy styled. And of course, no archer should have to do without a few good accessories, like a quiver or an arm guard. Each of our medieval styled bows comes with a 1 year warranty that protects against manufacture defects. Some of our bows are also made to order, and these particular bows fall under the same rules that govern our customer orders. Unless there is a manufacturer defect, once these bows are ordered, they cannot be canceled or returned. You can read more about Custom Orders under our Orders Section, toward the bottom of the page. Because our bows have different availabilities and different delivery times, make sure you read the shipping information carefully before ordering. How to Tell your Draw Length and Draw Weight: Your Draw Length measurement is how far back you draw the bowstring before releasing it. To find your draw length, stand and extend both arms out in front of you. Measure from your chest to the end of your middle finger and subtract 2 inches. This will find your approximate draw length. The draw weight determines how much weight in pounds that you will be using to pull back your bow at the specified draw length. For instance, if you choose a draw weight of 30 and have a draw length of 28 inches, when you pull the bowstring back to 28 inches, you will be pulling 30. Draw weight is hard to determine if you are a beginner but 30 is an excellent place to begin and is great for target practice. For hunting, a bow of 40 draw weight or higher is usually recommended.

"I just wanted to express my gratitude towards Alecia in your customer service department. I had ordered something that was out of stock and she gave me several options that I may be interested in and also suggested ordering another size. I asked her some questions regarding the other size and she was quick to respond (within hours!) and had a great attitude. She was quick to respond and because of her great customer service I would gladly recommend this company for ordering products and I will also continue to order products. Even though I didn't get what I initially ordered I believe the different size will work just as well."
