Handcrafted Bows and Knives

Bullock Road Bows has come to mean handcrafted quality at an affordable price both at home in New Zealand and around the world.

Ed Shaw is rapidly acquiring an international reputation for his custom made knives and bows. His unique styling and handcrafted detail has proven popular with people looking for a tool built to last, and also with collectors looking to cash in on something special while his bow prices remain very affordable (see our pricing policy).

You will find Bullock Road Bows hidden in New Zealand’s remote South Island back country. About one hours drive from Nelson and the extremely popular Able Tasman area you are in the spectacular Nelson Lakes region. This is genuine Lord of the Rings country (not the every-tourist-must-pose-for-a-picture-next-to version). And it is from here that the inspiration is derived, and the trees are harvested, for what becomes Bullock Road Bows handcrafted excellence.
