The Samick SKB 50 is a one-piece recurve horse bow. Constructed from rosewood, walnut, hard maple and fiberglass, the bow is lightweight, aesthetic, durable and draws smoothly. A genuine leather grip and a string are included with the bow. The SKB 50 is ambidextrous and can be used by both left-handed and right-handed archers. 

We recommend shooting horse bows with a thumb ring (sold separately).

Good bows

I've purchased a 45 pound and 35 pound bow to practice traditional Korean archery (with a thumb draw). I'm a 6' tall, 180lbs man, it took me a few weeks of shooting to get used to the drawing weight of the 45 pound bow. My thumb definitely took a beating the first few times, but these bows are so much fun to shoot. They make an awesome sound and they look great.

I originally thought the 35 pound would be easier to learn on, but I'm not as consistent on it. I have a lot more fun on the 45.

I'm only giving these bows 4 stars because the leather wrap where the hand holds the bow is already falling apart on both bows. It's not a big deal to me, but eventually I'll have to make a new wrap which is a bit annoying.

Nice cheap bow

I actually grabbed this bow because I wanted to try a different model of horse style bow and in a higher weight than the oak ridges black sada I got last year. I got this bow in a 45# weight. I actually prefer the sada bow for thumb draw. It draws even more smoothly and feels like butter all the way back to the more than 30 inch draw it must be where I anchor my thumb draw. I find I prefer this skb shooting split finger off the left side. It is quite snappy and launches the arrows high compared to my other recurves and longbows I shoot this way. There is a bit of finger pinch at full draw shooting this way- I guess due to the short length of this bow. I am also giving it a bit of a hit on ratings as the string it came with was useless with a super thin serving that didn’t fit my knocks. Disappointing when you first unbox it and string it up and expect to start shooting right away. I replaced it with another string of the same length from another shop, minor inconvenience. It’s a good bow, certainly can’t go wrong with price. But if you were going to have one horse bow- go with the black sada over this.

A perfect horsebow - no complaints.

I purchased this bow for teaching horse bow style to my archery students, but I am loving the flawless design and smooth shooting of this bow. It is a joy to shoot. I have nothing to complain about. It is a perfectly designed horse bow and I cannot find anything wrong with it.

Amazing little bow

Fast, light and accurate. Excellent bow for the price. I cannot believe the quality of this little bow comparing to other bows that are similar in price.

All special orders are treated with priority. Outside of larger items such as bows, many special order items are on a consistent stocking basis. General turn around due to pandemic backorders is at least 8 weeks depending on manufacturer lead times.

Some bows such as custom target bows and top shelf traditional recurve bows are on a made to order basis directly from the manufacturer.

Some left handed products such as high end target equipment can also experience unforseen delays due to manufacturer batch production.

We make every effort to meet the deadlines set above. Sometimes due to issues out of our control we are unable to accomplish this. We will make every effort to remedy the situation if that is the case.
