Travel Internationally with Your Arcus Bow
The ever-increasing risk of having bows confiscated by Customs or other government agents overseeing import-export of products made from endangered species is becoming a big deal for musicians who travel across national borders (and even State borders within the U.S. and elsewhere). For example, if the tip of your bow is made from elephant ivory or, now, even so-called "fossil ivory" (e.g. mammoth tusk), kiss that bow goodbye if you cross any international border. Not a joke or exaggeration!
Arcus bows contain no ivory, tortoiseshell, lizard skin, or other controlled (i.e. endangered, regulated or monitored) species. You may travel internationally with your Arcus bow with no worries or hassles at Customs in any country.
