Hand-crafted bows by Joe Darnell
My name is Joe Darnell, and I am a bowyer from Oak Ridge, Tennessee. I have been building bows for nearly 20 years. Mastering the art of building traditional bows is a long, learn-as-you-go process that includes finding out as much about yourself as the wood you are working with.

High-performance fiberglass bows
Every Tanasi bow is hand-crafted to suit the archer. Incredibly fast, accurate, and light, these bows are designed and built for performance. I use exotic woods and fiberglass to build bows that fall at the intersection of art and performance.
Several bow models are available, each highly customizable and built to your exact specifications.
"The bow is elegant and powerful, a perfect beauty. I waited four
months for a bow that I had dreamed of for 20 years. Thank you Joe,
my friend, for this nice bow!"
Torsten from Germany
"When the bow arrived I was astonished. The bow was very nice.
Perfect, impeccable workmanship. Not a single blemish. Very powerful,
fast, and accurate. I had been so long looking for a bow like this."
Carlo from Italy
"When the bow arrived I instantly knew I had found the one. This
bow is so smooth, quiet, forgiving, and FAST. Above all, I would
also like to add that Joe has quickly become a new found friend."
Justin from America
"There are so many descriptions to express a bow, such as second
to none, best of the best, look no further, smooth as silk, and so on.
But I would rather describe Chota like the relationship with a friend...INTIMATE."
Lendl from Taiwan
