Gerardo Tasistro: Quick video showing how a composite bow is made.
KravaLLT: Powerful JRE
laikhambrgr: does anybody know where i can buy an authentic mongolian comp bow and how
much it would cost?
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
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
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.

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.
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.
John Adams: these bows were up to 160lb draw weight, try lifting 160lb with ur right
MrLantean: @cwmyr The recurved composite bow was adopted by the Romans. In Britain,
remains of such bows were found in Roman ruins. After the fall of the
Western Roman Empire, recurved composite bows were gone in Western Europe
but was retained in the Eastern Roman Empire. Western Europeans relearned
the composite bows during the crusades but only use it to make crossbow
prods. Archers prefers the longbows rather than the recurved composite
