How The Mongol Bow Is Made.




What do you think about this video?

Vccine: Much further and faster than any european opponent*? What time period is he talking about specifically? As far as I know, english warbows had a maximum draw weight potential of over 180 pounds. I doubt these bows had the same.

Gerardo Tasistro: Quick video showing how a composite bow is made.

KravaLLT: Powerful JRE

Takingout thetrash: longbow suck, as does the long sword, as does European knights Asians are smart and they revolutionize warfare

laikhambrgr: does anybody know where i can buy an authentic mongolian comp bow and how much it would cost?

Bifron1: SWEET!

ruphang nalbo: no wonder mongols took over half the world

Vovk3: I hate to be that one pickle, but the narrator of the original video is a douche. Never before seen in Europe? Get real.

johnjayrambo11111: great video 5/5

MrLantean: @LBStudios Composite bows are fashioned into recurved shape. Some composite bows are even double recurved. The recurved shape stores more energy and delivers energy more efficiently than an equivalent straight-limbed bow, giving a greater amount of energy and hence speed, to the arrow. Composite bow design from Korea all the way to the Lower Balkans are fairly standardised in shape.

Arslan MGL: did you say history of china tell me than about great wall of china and who made you build that and more over who liberated you from japaniese occupation ????????????

SzittyaFirga: The arrow had never been seen in Europe??? This is not right, How about the Huns, Avars, Hungarians? We had the same arrows and the same war fighting culture.

BitMiller: Oh well, I post it in here too :) The turkish and hungarian (magyar ;) ) bows are also remarkable. As well as the magyar crossbow made with a similar method from horn and tendon and other natural and flexible materials, unlike the european ones, which are made of "hard" steel.

steelboy stanboy: Let me tell you what, read some books

johnnyphisit: Looks like u are an expert here. Could you please help me compare the distance the arrow could travel when using long or mongol bow ... cheers

kyleisreallycool: God Damn Mongolians Trying to Tear Down My crapTy Wall!!!

Shunuu Baatar: THIS MODERN MONGOLIAN BOWS DESIGNED FOR ARCHEREY CONTESTS AND ARE MADE FROM MOUNTAIN GOAT HORN SO IT NARROW AND LONG. THE BOWS WHICH MADE FROM OX HORN WERE SHORTER AND FAR MORE POWERFUL. THAT WAS REAL WAR BOW.

Vidar Burström: wut m8?

MrLantean: @comradecommedy Horse archers learned that it is very difficult to manuevere using a wooden bow like a longbow on horseback. Horse archers aims towards their enemies while pursuing or fleeing from using. Using a longbow, he kept poking the horse during such manueveres and the horse will get annoyed. A shorterned wooden bow will break during a full draw. Bowyers need to find materials that are strong enough to prevent a shortened bow from breaking during a full draw.

MrKanjudi: vow, this is great. we have the same bows in Hunza also, but I did not knew how to make them. Please provide a link with more technical points. Like how the glue is made, how the bow sting is made, what other wood can be used if not bamboo for the bow frame. Thank you

kokotselos: me too

Akiminos: Actually the Yin empire never thought the mongol horde would stand a chance against them. They gathered their army at an ideal location on one side of a mountain pass. With the mongols on the other. The mongols however climbed the mountain (even thought it was considered impossible). And thus attacked from 2 directions.

MrLantean: @Hashishtani The Mongol bow is one variation of the recurved composite bow, commonly used by archers from Korea all the way to the Lower Balkans and North Africa. It is more poweful than the English longbow and can be used on both horseback and on foot.

RalphyGreene: @comradecommedy So youre saying its better because its bigger? You know theres videos on youtube with turkish bows being shot that are over 100 pounds draw. You do realize that pound per pound composite bows proven by science and physics are stronger than longbows right? You also understand a lot of people had steel arrows not just the british lmao. Also how would you know if youve never shot anything but a longbow lol.

HolzMechanikerUSA: @Tonybsmagicalworld Beg to differ, the English Longbow, as what was discovered from the wreck of the Mary Rose, had been determined to have a pull weight of 100 to 150 Pound pull.... I will site "Longbow, a Military and social history" by Robert Hardy. Now as for the pull of the Mongolian, I haven't the foggiest idea, so I will accept your point there.

Seaforth Curator: @MrCemgok "whatever length you can find" - the Plains Indians made horn bows from buffalo(bison) horn, which doesn't get much longer than 12 inches. Cow horn should work just as well.

tuchesuavae: Ohhhh ok thank you so much. it confuses me be cause at the end of last year i read the they were the same thing i was reading about compound bows and it actually called the mongolian bows compounds, many sources and arecherwers did as well. them literally an month or so later. the articles had been edited and the archers were also saying it was different but the they (the world or archery, or who ever catagorizes this stuff decided it was actually differences)and that a compound bow was

Bravo Bruckner: if you're to the point where you're delivering explosives with a bow- can't you just call it a day and get a gun?

simhopp: the biggest difference between any of the mongol/hun/turkish/manchurian/hungarian bows and Korean bow is that, when un-strung, Korean bow make a complete circle shape, where either ends meet each other. no other bow does that.

pOOner2012: I watched this show called Ancient Discoveries last night, it was about ballistics. With one of these Mongolian bows an "expert" shot something like 15 arrows in 26 seconds on horseback and 10 arrows in 12 seconds on foot while still hitting all targets.

Monabmn: goooooooooooooood

steelboy stanboy: Huue chi Mongol hun yum shig bn. Minii bichsen comment iig zuv oilgood asuultaa asuugaarai. chinii tavisan asuult chin hujaa baagiigaas l asuuh asuult bn daa

Fourdancingturtles: well im am into traditional native american archery im cherokee and osage longbows really fascinate me. Anyone who knows a lot about english longbows. i have question does cutting through the backs on a yew bow weaken it tremendously because osage must be a resilient bow if the cherokees cut through the back growth rings.

Guafi777: how does one make the ears for the bow?

bloodrage008: there were no guns when the bows were first made and used for war, explosives depends on what type of explosives you're referring to, they can either have small flaming pots that explode on impact, or they used fireworks to burn houses, the chinese were using fireworks long before the gun concept, so the mongols could have had such technology available to them

MrLantean: @Rachen30 Modern bows are made from various materials like carbon fibre and fibreglass. Making bows using traditional materials are for historical purpose and passing down ancient knowledge.

ABYZ1289: Thnx

mp reagan: MAKE ME ONE

tsenguun enkhbat: @Orkaykilij huns are ancient mongolians actually its not hun it should be called hunnu besides when temujin became king of mongolia our country was called hunnu after the name Chinggis khaan our country was called mongolia tatar, kazakh, buraytia, halh durvud they are all mongolians. We are only 2.7 million because we always fought and died on war lots of mongolians live in russia, china, afghan, iraq, kazakh and more countrys all of them was left after the invasion by mongols.

Quinn S: I am doing a project on Genghis Khan and the Mongols, and this really helped. Thanks! : )

SKlegomovies: @RCSCC137 EBAY SUCKS

cwmyr: "Never seen in Europe before" Not quite right, Huns, Turks and Magyars used very similar reflex composite bows. Hunnic bows were even adapted by the romans and brought to places like spain and britain.

tuchesuavae: different from the composite bow. but either way thank you for explaining, i believe you. maybe it like it appeared or i ran into a bunch of really bad sources lol.

Pedro Ferreira: What a beauty!

Flamingdragonarse: I want one

RCSCC137: You can get Ibex horn or water buffalo horn online from a few sites or from good old ebay

ABYZ1289: How the hell does one get one's hands on a yak horn.

tuchesuavae: dude they made missiles before guns. grenades and bombs too. explosives and missiles gave then the idea for guns, that and they use shrapnel in there grenades and that also gave way to guns. sometimes things are funny like that and you work in reverse. funny when you think about it though.

lifes40123: yak horns are stronger.

eu2110: Brilliant.

Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
