Full-Size 32-inch Hmong Crossbow | Tiger Maple and White Oak

Unique Item—the crossbow you see in the photos is the actual one you will get.

Bow and trigger: White Oak

Stock: Grade A Extra Fancy Tiger Maple Wood

Includes ten hand-made bamboo arrows

Hemp bowstring


A full-size traditional Hmong crossbow made from an absolutely exquisite piece of tiger maple—grade A extra fancy stripes. Bow and trigger made from very straight grain white oak. All surfaces finished with three layers of linseed oil, with three days of drying between each layer. Stock is then finished with five layers of thinned high gloss polyurethane to bring out the tiger maple stripes. Lub Taub (stock) measures 27 inches long and 0.75 inches thick. The nta hneev (bow) measures 32 inches long, 0.50 inches thickness in the center and distally tapers out to 0.4 inches in thickness—likewise, measuring 2.25 inches wide in the center and tapering out to 1.5 inches wide at the tips. No wedges needed to seat the bow into the stock as seen in more hastily made crossbows—the fit is tight and secure without!


At 105 pounds, this is a crossbow becomes hard to cock/load while held against the stomach—nta ntawm plab. Some will find cocking it on the hip more comfortable, or with the help of the legs if you find 105 pounds to be heavy. With the included bamboo arrows, it can kill game up to the size of a squirrel if you place an ethical shot. With heavier arrows, tipped with broadheads, this bow has the potential to be much more lethal.
