The outer side of the limbs is covered with pigskin. Brown cow leather cover on the inner side of them and on the handle. The rigid tips are made of ash wood. Fast, accurate bow with groove guides (string-pads). It can be drawn long.
The string is made of Dacron-which is a stretchable plastic, and we use Kevlar for the string bandage.
The “Altan Ord” (Golden Horde), founded by Batu Khan, got their name from the richly ornamented tents the lived in while they were wreaking havoc in Eurasia as far west as Hungary. As a division of the Mongol Empire, their territory quickly expanded to 6,000,000 km2 (2,300,000 sq mi). Considering that the fastest way of communication at that time was by mounted messengers, it boggles the mind how they could maintain such an empire for hundreds of years.
Their conquest was in no small part thanks to the Mongolian bow. Its ancestor, the Scythian recurve bow defined the shape of the Asiatic recurve bows. The one huge difference is that the Mongolian recurve has stiff tips, which adds to the speed of the bow. Coupled with the Manchurian string pad, while being more compact than the Manchurian bow, other nations had to either join with the Horde or perish.
