In ancient times a bow wasn't simply a weapon... it was a way of life. The Egan & Ives Tree of Life Longbow celebrates that ancient heritage.

This magnificent bow features hand-painted Celtic/Norse-style tree motif artwork, a common symbol in cultures around the world, dating back to ancient times. With branches reaching to the sky and roots deep underground, this tree symbolizes the link between heaven, earth, and the underworld.

Made of hickory backed with quarter-sawn hickory with an auburn finish and sealed with three coats of water-based satin polyurethane. The handle is wrapped in Kodiak leather, an especially durable leather made for rugged outdoor use.

Includes case, stringer, and string. Shoot right or left handed. Choose 35, 40, 45, or 50# @ 28".
  • String Length: 65½"
  • Loop Size: 1½" (top), 1¼" (bottom)
  • Replacement String: B-50 Flemish Twist

Remember that with a traditional bow the weight will change depending upon what your draw length is. Bow weight will change approximately ±2½ pounds for every inch from a bows rated draw length. So a bow rated 45# @ 28" bow is roughly a 42½# @ 27" or 47½# @ 29". Draw weight is marked at the nearest 5# increment to actual weight, (2#'s under and 3#'s over). This is an industry wide standard.

A bow stringer is recommended for stringing any recurve bow or longbow. Stringing a bow without a bow stringer, or stringing it backwards will void a bow's warranty. It is recommended to unstring your primitive bow when you are done shooting, and only string it right before shooting. Store your bow on its side, or hanging vertically from a peg. Never rest the bow on the lower tip for extended periods of time. Never dry fire the bow (shooting without an arrow).
