This bow holds a very special place in Ron LaClair’s heart. While in the process of designing the Shrew Heritage, he paid particular attention to the specific individual woods he selected and their composition to make this classic Shrew bow as perfect in function and form as it was in beauty. The result is an attractive classic look that is reminiscent of the legendary laminated traditional bows so popular in the early 1950s and 1960s. The rich dark brown and heavy Ipe wood gives the Shrew Heritage a nice stable heft and feel in the riser section even though the handle is sleek, elegant, and petite. The beautiful grain of the Macassar veneer shimmers through the unique opaque green glass. The overlays and the riser are beautifully accented and stabilized by thin strips of black and white micarta.

We do not keep all bows in stock. Please view our list of available shrew bows here.
We recommend our Shrew Whisper String for all of our Shrew Bows and all other traditional bows that can be shot with high-performance, low-stretch bowstrings.
When choosing your bowstring, please note that due to the slim limbs for all Shrew Bows (Classic Hunter II, Super Shrew II, Lil Favorite) a Shrew Whisper String for Longbows is required. All Shrew Bows are built according to the ATA string length standard (String length = Bow length – 3″)
