Mongolian Recurve 🏹
The Mongol bow is a type of recurved composite bow used in Mongolia. Ancient and modern Mongol bows are part of the Asian composite bow tradition. The core is bamboo, with horn on the belly (facing towards the archer) and sinew on the back, bound together with animal glue. As animal glue is dissolved by water, composite bows may be ruined by rain or excess humidity; a wrapper of (waterproof) birch bark may give limited protection from moisture and from mechanical damage. The bow is usually stored in a leather case for protection when not in use.
Limbs: Bamboo core throughout. Bow tips are Ivory horn knocks allowing the use of today's modern bow strings.
String: Flemish twist bow string. Manufacturer recommended brace height: 7" - 8".
Left and Right hand available. Please specify.
Please Note: A different tint of color, different grain in the wood, and even "birthmarks" are common in this bow. You may receive a bow that looks different from the one pictured. Please be aware of this when ordering. If you would like a particular look, include a note on your order to contact you.
Choose from a left or right hand bow (choose based on what hand you Draw the bow string with), and bow weight at a 28" draw length. Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight.
Bow stringer not included. A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. It is recommended to unstring your bow if you do not plan to be shooting more than week. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
