Description

The recurve bow “Amage” is a stylization of the ancient and medieval composite bows made of horn, wood, and sinew.

Many ancient people were using recurve composite bows starting from the second millennium BC. Among these ancient peoples were also Sarmatians. They were using such bows during the war and for hunting. Initially, the Sarmatians had been using the shorter Scythian bows, but then the longer type of bow entered the historical weapon arena. The grip and the ends were reinforced with bone plates whereas the arrows became heavier with iron arrowheads.

Our bow model is named after Sarmatian queen Amage, wife of Sarmatian king Medosacus (2nd сentury).  The Amage is an entry level bow that will be a good choice for ladies and beginners. This model is also suitable for horseback archery because it is lightweight, flexible, and compact. The Amage has a good speed rating (about 160 fps for a nearly 30-pound bow) and we consider it a good characteristic for the start level bow.
