  • Regular price $379.00 NZD


This ancient Hungarian bow was used by the Magyars, a large group of nomadic tribes similar to that of the Huns. 

The Magyars used bows of this style on horseback as they conquered Countries within Europe.  The popularity and success of the bow comes from its very smooth draw and release allowing for excellent accuracy even when on horseback.

This style of bow has a unique shape when unstrung with the limbs bending towards the back of the bow, allowing it to store an enormous amount of energy.  This design allows arrows to be shot faster than a standard re-curve, or even against other types of reflex bows.

This Magyar bow is a wooden composite with a layer of Mahogany, a dark wood often used in furniture building for its strength and beauty. The colour of this bow really makes it stand out from the rest. To add further strength and protection, this bow has also been laminated with fibreglass and epoxy.
