This bow was typical in late imperial times, used both by infantry and mounted archer units. It is a composite recurve, the remains of the weapon were found throughout Europe and Asia Minor. The bow is easy to draw, the poundage is approximately 42#, has a fast and accurate shot. It was made by Csaba Grózer, one of Hungary’s most respected bowmakers. The limbs and the handle are covered with fawn brown deer skin. Black leather lacing on the inner side of the limbs. The ends are made of walnut wood, strengthened with horn. The bandaging material is natural hemp lace.
Grozer Csaba Bowyer master:
When stringing the bow, the lower end of it mustn’t touch the ground and the upper end must be held and pressed under the bezel. The middle of the hilt should lean up on the inside part of the thigh, while the lower end of the bow above the bezel should lean up on the outside of your lower leg.
The C-shaped and composite bows should be strung crouching, the bow pressed to the knees.
Before using set the string in the middle of the siyahs. If the siyahs twisted during the stringing of the bow, they have to be set to the middle as well by twisting it to the opposite direction
