Welcome to Green Man
Longbows, makers of fine English Longbows and war bows in traditional and
Our English longbows are
hand made in West Yorkshire, England, They are made from top quality Pacific
Yew, supplied by a long established company specialising in bow woods.
This slow grown Yew has a beautiful strong colour, with a sharp, clear
distinction between heart and sap wood. The bow staves are made from wood
specially selected for being clean and straight and are air dried for up to six
years. The grain is very tight and the
wood is ideal for longbows of all weights.
The nocks are made
from hand carved and polished buffalo horn (or cow horn) and the
supplied string is made from high quality B50 bow string
material. Hand grips, (if included) are made from calf
leather and solid sterling silver wire.
