Custom Recurve Bows & Longbows
Please understand that our inventory changes rapidly. We are not able to keep all models in stock at all times!
I will be opening up to new bow orders in the New Year. To answer your question; length of waiting list time; right now it would be about 6 months. I will only take orders to fill up to the end of 2023. Please submit your order through the order form on the website using the online calculator. Details can be changed and questions answered after the submission. I will only ask for down payments on orders I believe I can finish in 2023. I have no intention of retiring as long as I'm able and enjoying the bow building process. I wish you all the best in the New Year!

"I don't think I've ever shot a bow that performs as well as this bow..” -David Toms
Welcome! I'm Abe Penner, the designer and bowyer for Cari-bow. I've been making handmade and custom archery bows near Winnipeg, Canada for over 28 years. I am happy to say that over two thousand archers have used these bows in conditions ranging from intense African heat to the subfreezing cold of the Rocky Mountains. Through the years, several archers have used Cari-bows to claim national and world longbow competition titles. My intention is to make each bow as tough and accurate as it is beautiful.

"Quiet and shock free are understatements when describing how the bow shoots ….The Peregrine is quite possibly the last bow you will buy"... -Pete Ward
