Traditional Longbows

If you are looking for a traditional longbow, then you have come to the right place. Dark Knight Armoury is proud to present you, the customer, with a number of high quality, hand crafted traditional longbows. These bows are available in several different types. Styles vary from American and English longbows to hunting bows, even to fantasy themed bows based on Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia. But no matter what style of bow you select, you can rest assured knowing that every bow here is fully functional. They are designed with archery in mind and will perform quite well during general bow use. Nearly all of our traditional longbows come in a variety of draw weights and draw lengths. They are actually custom made to order, to ensure that we have a bow suitable for any archer. Because our traditional longbows are custom made, however, they all do have different delivery times. Make sure that you read each item description carefully before purchasing to determine when the traditional longbow of your dreams will be available and ready for delivery. 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 so 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.
