Take-down bows and longbows (Carriage Bows) and hand made mahogany bow boxes with brass fittings




The take-down longbow  is a bow that comes in two half's that are joined together at the handle when in use. It is also known as a carriage bow, named after its use as protection in horse drawn carriages where space and ease of transportation were a major factor.



Green Man Longbows use a high quality steel and brass sleeve and socket system in our take-down longbows that is suitable for all laminated and self wood bows up to around a 50lb draw weight.
