There are bows and there are Bows and there are BOWS. Inspired by the Turkish Horn bow the design is adapted to modern materials and has an ergonomic handle and shelf.An incredible bow in every respect. Build quality and design is flawless. The handle is just ergonomic perfection! At least for my hand.
Actually 8 layers of wood in the handle although looks much less. This is of course is a Turkish bow which traditionally would have a simple symmetrical handle with no shelf. I regard this bow to be aimed more towards an established, experienced western style archer who wants to experience the incredible shooting experience these bows can offer while retaining hard earned shooting technique. Some famous horse archers do shoot western style and Incredibly Mongolian archers shoot western style with the bow hand but with thumb release! This is an incredible bow in every respect..
Draw length up to 33Inches. But a stable snappy shooter.. Interesting draw curve with a hint of compound experience..But only a hint remember. As incredible as this bow is.. It does not break the laws of physics. For the archery/ collector investor. Tisan behind Saluki Bows, was born and raised in the former Czechoslovakia, where he was trained as a glass sculptor.
He immigrated to the United States at age of 21, and after working for many years as a glass artist, he decided to pursue his childhood passion for bows. In 1998 Lukas founded Saluki Bow Company, and has been full time bowyer since then. Known for making some of the most refined and high performing modern interpretations of Asian bows, Lukas Novotny is also a successful instructor of mounted archery, having given clinics and demonstrations in the USA, Canada, France, Germany, India, Australia and Brazil. Lukas is co-founder and former President of the Mounted Archery Association of the Americas.The Saluki Bow Company is a one man operation, but Lukas is assisted in the office by his wife, the Brazilian mounted archer Patricia Viana. Takes its name from the most ancient breed of hunting dog.
Slender, swift and deadly accurate, the Saluki dogs from the Middle East and North Africa, epitomize what a great bow should be. When Lukas started making his first Salukis back in the 90's, they were different than anything else found on the market. The unique limb design based on the Asiatic composite bows, sets the Saluki bows apart, and they are the culmination of many years of not only study, but the painstaking process of recreating authentic horn bows. The kind of understanding that can only be gained from the experience of building horn bows of Turkish, Scythian and Mongolian origin. I have constantly been in search of the most efficient design, and it is an ongoing process.Horn bows have been my motivation from the beginning, and the rich history they left behind has become a constant source of inspiration for me.
