The Han-style Bamboo Bow (禮弓) is a handmade bamboo bow (no fiberglass!) with a hardwood core. It is inspired by the bamboo bows used in ancient China (1st millennium BCE). You can see such bows shown in ancient Chinese artwork, including artwork depicting the revered Chinese archery rituals.Max draw length (from back): 32"
