Black Rhino™ Recurve Bows

By Okaw Valley Bows LLC

Note: The bow models for youth are not toys, but a lethal piece of archery equipment that will propel an arrow capable of doing potential damage and should be used only with adult supervision. For those that will be new to archery, the archery experience can turn into a lifetime of fun and recreation.

Why Black Rhino™ Recurve Bows are the right choice
Much thought and work has gone into the design of the Black Rhino™ recurve bows.
After many requests from customers by phone and at numerous traditional archery events, we have developed the Black Rhino Recurve Bow as an addition to our popular line of youth longbows. 

We build all our recurve bows here in the USA in our own shop from like materials, as we have determined that our selection is not only the strongest but also aesthetically appealing. By using materials common to all models we are able to purchase in bulk and provide our customers with outstanding products at reasonable and affordable prices. The Black Rhino™ recurve bows are warranted for one year.

Handcrafted Quality
Our Standard Recurve featuring
a Spectra-Ply handle

Black Rhino™ recurve bows are made with Spectra-Ply handles.  They use hard maple as the core lamination wood. Hard maple has been time proven as an outstanding bow wood. It also provides a nice contrast between the black fiberglass facing and backing.  All of these materials come together to form a handsome bow that will withstand hard use. As a final touch the Black Rhino™ recurve receives three coats of a diffused, high endurance finish, which will resist scratching and chipping. All Black Rhino™ bows are warranted for one year from date of purchase.

Black Rhino recurves can be drawn up to 26 inches.  These recurves are available at weights from 17lbs up to 26lbs, rated at a standard 24" draw.
