Handmade, historical horseman bow. As the name of the bow KHAN suggests, it was made after the models of the horsemen bows from the time of the ruler Genghis Khan. The bow makers of the former ruler were the first to produce bows that were layer-glued and with modified limbs. The arches from this period were also the first to pierce metal armor.
The Tatars is an umbrella term for different Turkic ethnic groups bearing the name "Tatar". The name Tatar first appears in written form on the Kul Tigin monument as Ta-tar and likely was referring to the Turkic Tatar confederation. That confederation was eventually incorporated into the Empire of Genghis Khan when he unified the various steppe tribes.Historically, the term Tatars (or Tartars) was applied to anyone originating from the vast Northern and Central Asian landmass then known as Tartary, which was dominated by various mostly Turco-Mongol semi-nomadic empires and kingdoms.
