Have you been searching for your next DIY project? If so, then the DIY Bow Making category at Dark Knight Armoury should be your first stop! We carry an excellent array of bow making supplies and bow building kits that bow makers of any experience level can transform into a functional archery bow customized to their needs and tastes. Made from fine materials like hickory, ipe wood, Osage orange, and bamboo, our bow making parts feature items like bow staves, riser blocks, bow backing strips, and tip overlay blocks. We also offer replacement bow strings that you can store with your archery supplies when you go out to shoot just in case you snap a string. After investing time and energy into shaping, tillering, and finishing your bow, make sure to protect it by storing it in one of our felt bow socks, which are great for keeping your bow from getting scratched and dinged while in transit. With quality bow kits and bow supplies like these, you will soon have the perfect bow to take out hunting or target practicing!

"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."
