“Tanjavur” bow by Greg Coffey




This bow is a good example of our passion for combining durability, performance, and beauty by integrating old and new forms.

Perfect joinery unites 16 different layers of exotic woods in the handle section in a sweet flowing compound curve. The set-back handle design is ancient but the joinery, pistol grip and shelf are modern. The side view of the limbs show quite a thickening in the last nine inches which echoes the 9,000 year-old Holmegarrd, but the restrained recurve may be more modern as are the fiberglass reinforcement and the fast flight string. We believe that it is among the world’s very best for the dedicated hunter. Length is 58 inches, but length and weight can be customized. This bow is made in the U.S.A. but our business is with bowyers from around the world.
