Best Made’s American Longbow is what you need to get in touch with your inner Hawkeye or Katniss.

Handmade in the U.S., the longbow’s hickory core is strong but light, and the Flemish twist string allows users to customize the tool's performance. A hand-stitched leather grip completes the package.
