Archery, bows and arrows had an important role in many historical cultures. To most contemporary people it is known mainly from movies about the Wild West. Bows are often used by Indians in these movies. North-American-Indians were highly skilful makers of bows and arrows. They were also excellent archers. Asians always used to be significant archers too. A traditional Japanese archery is very interesting. Kyudo is a modern Japanese martial art that includes the idea of moral and spiritual development and purification.
Even in these times, dads teach their kids how to make their own bows and arrows. It is a traditional boys' fun. Handmade bows are very similar to primitive bows and arrows from prehistoric times. For example, African bows are made only from bent trees or branches also today. Traditional bowstrings were made from leathers, animal’s guts or strings and attached by tying up to the bow ends. Arrowheads of war arrows were usually poisoned. Maybe that is why African tribes didn’t need to develop the construction of their bows relying to the efficiency of the used poison.

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
