“Our job is to make them to group tightly.  Your job is to find the target.”

The price of mediocrity will always be higher than the price of excellence.  I suppose this is true of most things, but it is certainly true of arrows!


Todd Mathis has been shooting archery for nearly 40 years.  After leaving the Army in 1982, he developed an interest in bamboo arrows. Because there were no reliable bamboo arrow makers who spoke English or sold quality custom bamboo arrows, he learned on his own arrows.  (You may recall that the internet wasn’t around in those days.)  Studying the engineering involved in static and dynamic spine of arrow flight (a very obscure bit of research) was the key to making them group tightly. High quality parts AND proper engineering produces tough bamboo arrows which will fly predictably, group tightly, and pack a punch.  Along the way, he became an expert in tuning arrows for a particular archer and the bow that archer uses.  Todd always welcomes calls for advise on CUSTOM bamboo arrows.

Todd founded Khan’s Arrows to be a SINGLE SOURCE for reliable hand-crafted bamboo arrows AND PARTS.  He supports this effort with BAMBOO ARROW UNIVERSITY where you can get proper advice to MAKE, OR REPAIR bamboo arrows which GROUP TIGHTLY instead of scattering all over the target.  The INFORMATION is free on Bamboo Arrow University.  Feel free to steal anything you want from Bamboo arrow University.  All you pay for this the supplies.

My business is helping you be successful with bamboo arrows, and have a great time shooting!

If your form is good, and you practice, then your arrows should group tightly…like in a teacup.  That is the goal I set for myself, not that I always achieve that, but I do have high expectations.  If you work with me, I can help you get the perfect set of arrows for you and your bow.  Since I send you the records on your arrows, we can work together to improve them.  You don’t need to reinvent the wheel every time you order arrows.

The largest part of my business, other than my U-FLETCH ARROWS, are my high quality parts which are found in the PARTS DEPARTMENT.  BAMBOO ARROW UNIVERSITY is a free service available to teaching you to make and repair your own arrows.  You will find the prices are fair, but the quality is outstanding!  You are certainly free to call anytime and chat about your questions and goals.  I’m in the business of helping you be successful with bamboo arrows, and have a great time on the range!

If you aren’t having a great time shooting archery, maybe you need to think about that.

Bamboo arrows are meant to be shot in all conditions and can often take astonishing abuse that would ruin other arrows. While we both know that sooner or later you will break or lose some of your arrows, being able to make or replace those perfect arrows removes the anxiety of having fun with them.

Khan’s Arrows are NOT “off the shelf” factory arrows. These are the real hand-made, medieval, armor piercing, hog mauling, best flying arrows you will ever buy…and once you begin shooting them, you will never want to go back to synthetics. I certainly never did!  It is my pleasure to make what are likely the BEST hand-made authentic wooden arrows you will every shoot. Or, better still, teach you how to make your own and offer everything you might need to be an expert.  Now tell me that isn’t what you have been looking for!

Balancing an arrow is an art

Khan’s arrows makes authentic medieval arrows for SCA re-enactors or Renaissance Fair enthusiasts!  These arrows may look kick-ass, but they are the real thing too!  These matched bamboo arrows are individually hand-made, hand straightened, and balanced prior to shipping, IN OUR SHOP IN TEXAS, just like every arrow we sell.  They will be legal on any SCA or Ren Fair range.  Every set of arrows we sell is balanced, matched, properly spined to group tightly and durable! Old Genghis would be happy with our work.  He brought down 4 empires using arrow just like these.

Please keep in mind that delivery could take 2 – 4 weeks. I won’t start making your arrows until I know exactly what you want and the order form has been received along with your payment.  I often help tournament archers, who have transitioned to bamboo, get exactly what they need.  Contact me…I really am a friendly guy!  Please see the customer review page for more information.
