Custom Raptor

“First of all these are stunning works of art with attention to detail that is just jaw dropping! Simon van der Heijden has taken the horsebow concept and made it his own. Although his bows are inspired by historical Asiatic designs this is no copy. Every aspect of the design has been developed to work to its optimum without being restricted by any variant that came before it. The beautiful Asiatic horsebow looks that truly offers modern day performance”!

Simon van der Heijden spends most of his time in his workshop doing what he loves: making bows!

Studying a variety of bows he became interested in traditional bows from the Middle-East and Asia which led him discover new bow making techniques involving modern materials.
Simon’s passion comes from being part of the whole process. Laying out the “raw materials”, putting them together, shaping them and as a result, making a piece of art you can use!
