Greece and Italy are probably having going out of business sales on all of their traditional bows. And those children over in communist China are slackin' again and have way too much play time on their hands. I'm sure that their masters would appreciate a purchase order.

Hi, it seems that you've already gotten alot of names so far. I'll put in my vote for Border bows because they're so beautiful. I don't own one but I have shot two and they are pretty popular here in Sweden along with Falco bows..

And here is one guy in Sweden that also builds guitars, Heikki Rousu.

I ordered a Mongol Horse Bow from Flagella Dei out of Hungary. Sort of funny, but they advertise as traditional bows, but most all of them are the horse bow type, which in Hungary is "traditional". I got shipping notification today from DHL. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I know Pip Bickerstaffe over in the UK..Nottingham. Mostly wood laminated English style longbows with the occasional ELB selfbow done.

Good craftsmen he and his lads and they have seen the old bows and know what they are replicating in both form and function..Jim

We need overseas suppliers to keep archery going for those just beginning, and those who don't have a pisspot full of money to buy customs. Our bowyers have no interest in offering low cost bows, and couldn't keep up anyway. American manufacturers are basiically nonexistant, save for Bear and Martin, and most of their line is out of range for rural folks trying to raise families on what some of the ego oriented asses consider pocket change.

Samick makes fine bows, and affordable to everyone.

From: Shifting Shadow
Date: 06-Sep-12




Speaking of Samick, the Red Stag take-down handle has been re- designed. It's slimmer and really fits and balances nicely in the hand. (Sorry, crawfish, couldn't resist.) $80.

No worries dude. They're making a boat load of parts for Jeep.

Matter of fact, Jeep owns the facility.

Cinnabar bows, traditional Chinese bows. Check out the videos, also look at the force curve of the Ming Moon 1. Bamboo and Gordon glass. I am ordering one this fall. Can't wait!

Sorry Trillium ... not cool at all ... what on earth is the point of killing a male African lion? ....

Sorry Crawfish

Phil, if we hunt, we kill. If you don't like it, don't do it and join Green Piece.

Nice Lion,

From: Phil

I'm no anti-hunter ... it's WHAT people hunt I have some issues with.

BTW ... it's Green PEACE.

If we want to discuss this lets start another thread ... lets respect crawfish's question and talk about overseas bow makers

Alternative Archery in England, you can get a set of ILF carbon foam limbs for $200.00 + shipping...PR

From: apachearrow

Although Samick is a Korean company, the "Sage" is made in China. That is apparently why they are so inexpensive. The finish (shaping) is not quite as good as some other bows, but it is a great shooting bow. The only thing sub-par about the Sage is the bowstring that comes with it.

From: Ventura66

BTW..........there is a fellow that just moved in a few doors down from me who is from Tanzania.........he claims that lion meat is highly prized there, and considered a delicacy.....speaks great English, as they were once part of the British empire..........

I am sure the meat did not go to waste if that was Phils concern..............

Great cat hunters I admire : Jim Corbett and Kenneth Anderson. They hunted alone and on foot maneating tigers and leopards.You can read their book on line :http://www.archive.org/stream/maneatersofkumao029903mbp/maneatersofkumao029903mbp_djvu.txt Thrilling and terrifying.

Welchman Longbows - made in Alaska, which is pretty much a foreign country to most. Gerry Welch makes some beautiful, traditional longbows of Cascade yew that he selects and cuts himself. English longbows and American semi-flat, all carved from one piece of wood. He's also a minister who travels quite a large area. Check out his website.
