Medieval Bows

An archer lives or dies by his bow: it is his or her primary weapon and for this reason it must be a bow that the archer knows and has experience with. Pick your bow from Dark Knight Armoury and you'll certainly get a bow that is both trustworthy and functional. No matter what style of bow you are looking for, you can find it here: we carry a wide assortment of wood bows to ensure that even the most discerning of tastes can be accommodated. Whether you're looking for fantasy influenced bows, traditional longbows, horse bows, or Recurve bows, you can find them right here in the traditional bows section. And because many bows can be so dependent on personal factors, many of our traditional bows are custom made, to ensure that the bow you need is the bow you get. It doesn't matter if you're an experienced archer or just a beginner: Dark Knight Armoury has a bow you can trust and depend on. Before ordering your own bow, make sure you read each item's description carefully to determine how long it will take to receive your traditional bow, and also take the time to determine and double check your draw length and draw weight. How to Tell your Draw Length and Draw Weight: Draw Length: 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. Draw Weight: 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', when you pull the bowstring back to 28', you will be pulling 30#. Draw Weight is hard to determine if you are a beginner; 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.
