Flatbows

We build The Last Shadow range of Flatbows in two different Styles; Howard Hill inspired and faster Kudu Hubrid Reflex Deflex bows. We concentrate on making sure we offer a wide range of patterns for our risers, from simple Maple through to Camouflage and Exotic timbers, See examples below.


We use high quality materials for these bows, crafted to an excellent standard that gives them a smooth draw, rapid loose and high performance. The bows we produce are custom made to your exact specification.

Our custom bows can be designed by you using various natural woods, exotic timbers, chosen draw weights and lengths, black or exotic nocks, pistol grip or straight Grip. All bows are finished in a 2k matt finish, to get a waterproof finish without producing glare, if hunting.


Contact us with your specification, or for free advice, on your dream bow and we will discuss the details through with you. Once we have your desired specifications we will give you a production time and cost, then start work on your bow once payment is received.

Once completed you will have your final update and your bow will be packaged and shipped to you via UPS courier. Turn around time on bows can vary depending on material availability and customer waiting list

Kudu Camo - Reflex/Deflex

The Camouflage edition of the Kudu flatbow was initially inspired by international bow hunter Brian Gilgeous.

Brian has hunted all his life, and with a compound bow for many years when he decided it was time to go traditional.

 

He was looking for something that was missing from compound bows and wanted to make bow hunting more of a challenge and follow the path of hunters of old.

This Reflex/Deflex bow is a true hunting flatbow, built up of several layers of Bamboo and Camouflage veneers between clear glass with a Stabil core if requested . This gives the bow stability with a smooth draw, yet the combination also produces a fast shooting bow with a great power stroke. The riser block is of multi laminated timber, giving an attractive camouflage effect when the riser is hand carved to shape for the archers grip. The bow has been finished with a 2k matt clear coat to avoid reflection while in use hunting.  All bows come with a signature token for each model sunk into the riser.
