Resurrection Longbows

Introducing what I call resurrected longbows.  These are longbows that I find at garage sales that are broken and in need of “resurrecting”.  I made a little video talking about them.  They are pretty neat and well worth the time to make them new again and give them a second life.

Handmade Arm Guards

Recently, I had some leather arm guards specially made for me to sell at Hickory Stick Longbows.   They are handmade from vegetable tanned leather by a master leather craftsman.

 They are held onto your arm by adjustable elastic cords.   An archer drawing his longbow is stamped onto the leather, for decoration.   They can be worn by either men or women.   I have many in stock that are ready for shipping.  Price is $18 plus shipping.

Another Happy Customer

I really enjoy hearing from my customers and getting feedback about their purchases.  I had a recent customer mail me a real nice letter that I’d like to share.

“…Thanks for sending me your hand made bamboo arrow-I like it’s looks a lot.  And it shoots fast and clean, real nice…Thanks for your help.  Glad I phoned you.”

-Richard from Deer Park, WA

Thanks Richard for you letter, I appreciate your business!

Robin Hood Arrow

I had a fine day out at Tomahawk Archers, last Sunday.

Toward the end of the day, my last customer gave all of us a quite unexpected and spectacular show of skill.  Bruce Gray, of Saline Michigan, was interested in my fir tapered shaft arrows.   We talked about their specs and I encouraged him to try shooting a few.

 Bruce shot a few fir arrows and I suggested he try out my bamboo arrows.   After Bruce shot his 3rd bamboo arrow, we heard a loud crack noise.  I wasn’t sure what happened…I thought he broke one of the knocks.

Bruce said, “Well, I think I have to buy these.”

We all looked up and couldn’t believe our eyes…he shot a Robin Hood!

Wow, everybody in the club had to come over and check out the Robin Hood arrows.  I think it’s pretty rare to Robin Hood wood arrows.   All the guys were impressed and came over to talk to Bruce and see the arrows.

It was the coolest thing and made my day to see it…first hand.  All, I could say was “Wow!”

It was a fine way to end the day.

My 2014 Schedule

Summer is finally here and I plan on going out my local archery clubs for their public shoots. It’s a great way to meet new archers and sell my archery equipment in person. This summer, I’ll be going to Tomahawk Archers.  They’re located in Temperance, Michigan.

They have a real nice club and the folks there are top notch. So if you live near Michigan or Ohio, it would be a great way to try out my longbows and arrows. I always encourage everyone to give them a try…with no pressure to buy!


I’ll be updating my website and posting more videos and picture galleries of my handmade arrows. I’ve added a new video category, so if you’re interested in seeing examples of my longbows and arrows, they’ll be easy to find.

If you’d like to see how I make my arrows, leave me a comment below and I’ll try to make one of those too.
