This is our take on the Skyrim Nightingale Bow. The faux wood texture and silver detailings give the impression, both in photos and life, that you have just earned the respect and trust of Karliah and are ready to venture on as a Nightingale and the newest leader of the thieves guild. The beauty of this bow is that you can live the fantasy outside of pictures and gaming. The functionality of our Nightingale bow is not diminished by the foam used on the body, in fact the outer layers of foam ensure that you don't hurt yourself as you carry it and use it to freeze your enemies in place.
This is a functional replica. It is also available as a con-safe prop. To see the bow in action, please check out our demo video at https://www.facebook.com/ivoryforge/videos/1636604666592286/

ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
-The weight option refers to the draw weight of the bow. Draw weight refers to the resistance or strength of the bow when pulling the string back. Not sure which draw weight to get? If you have little to no experience, or simply want a “fun” bow, get something lighter, in the 20-25 or 25-30 lbs draw, if it’s available. If you have a little more experience, or feel strong, try the 30-35 lbs. We recommend not getting the 45-55lb option unless you are very experienced and have the necessary strength to draw this bow reliably.
Wondering what we mean when we say con-safe? If you order the 0 (Con-safe) lb version of the bow, it will be made so it is already “bent” and is paired with a weak elastic cord, offering negligible functionality. This will give you a prop that at least “looks” like you are carrying proper bow, rather than just carrying around a bow that is unstrung or a sad, tiny one that you got from the costume store. Please know the rules of the event you may be attending, as this still may not qualify. In those cases, going completely string free should work.
Right or Left-Handed
-All of our bows are ambidextrous, except for the ones with a wooden riser (Speedy, Hawkeye, etc). You can shoot right or left handed with any of them!
-Not sure what arrows to use? Well, since most of our bows come without arrow rests, you'll want an arrow that is two inches longer than your normal draw length so that the tip will remain extended past your hand, even when drawn back. The average length is 28 inches, so going with 30 inches is a pretty safe bet. Also, make sure to get arrows rated for the draw weight of bow purchased. Note: the arrows we sell are intended to only be used as props.
-Normally, we don't have problems shipping overseas, except for the occasional delay as the package travels between countries.
-AUSTRALIANS: if it says you can't purchase because of shipping settings, please message us and we'll help you. The reason this happens is because Australia restricts packages to a max length of 42 inches (most of our bows are longer than that). We'll make adjustments to the settings for you. In this case, please pay via Paypal, or we won't be able to ship a product to you.
