“Been taught by respected Mr. Lucas Novotny, my lifelong passion for Asiatic traditional archery has led me to what I believe the ultimate art of traditional Asiatic archery implements fabrication. Specifically Asiatic horn bow making.

My goal is not production of commodities in general. All my works have been some degree of textual. Insist on using the best materials and 100% pure hand-made according to ancient records of the manufacturing process. 18 months of time-consuming are required for each horn bow I made.”

 

“Owing to the weather condition, Taiwan has an advantage in the production of horn bows. A horn bow produced elsewhere usually has a hard time operating under hot and humid condition.

Using only traditional methods, there will be completely no bow forms, jigs and clamps used in my production process.
Using 100% all premium natural materials, there is completely no artificial substance of any kind can be found in my horn bows, even coating materials and dyestuff.

Each of my horn bows needs to be seasoned at least 6 months, and spends a total of 18 to 20 months to complete. Due to my personal reasons, I don’t accept orders of Manchu bows and any kind of Manchu era (Qing dynasty) archery tackles.”

 

“For ordering Horn bows I am keen to work with you to ensure the best choice of horn bows for your need. My horn bow purchasing plan is very personal one.
