The Han Dynasty (206 BC--220 AD) represented the golden age of Classical China. It was a period of prosperity (with the consolidation of Silk Road trade routes) with accompanying advances in science, art, and literature. During this time, famous archers such as Li Guang (The Flying General) flourished. But as all dynasties must come to an end, so did the Han. The resulting turmoil ushered in the Three Kingdoms period (220--280 AD), a beloved time whose intrigues and romances would inspire many generations to come. Finally, the Three Kingdoms ended with the reunification of China under the Jin Dynasty (280--420 AD).
The Han Wind is heavily inspired by the long-siyah horn bows of this period (such as the Khotan bow), which had long, thin siyahs (tips) that gave the bow both stability and a smooth draw. These properties made the long-siyah bow popular for a very long time, and later variations of the design would last through the Tang, Song, and Yuan Dynasties (a time period leading up to 1368 AD). The Han Wind faithfully recreates the style of these bows, having perhaps the only modern material bow on the market with such long and thin siyahs --- this makes it delightfully efficient for a non-contact recurve.
