Traditional Crossbows

Like the longbow, the Crossbow is a standard of ranged medieval warfare. Compared to a longbow, a crossbow requires less training to use properly. Bolts from a crossbow also had comparably high penetrating power when compared to a longbow fired arrow and for much less physical exertion from the wielder. Thus the weapon became an important part of medieval warfare, despite being heavier and more awkward then a traditional bow. Paying homage to this medieval weapon is a number of Decorative Crossbows, brought to you by Dark Knight Armoury. These crossbows are made from hand carved wood. Every attention has been paid to ensure that these crossbows are as historically accurate as is possible. Each of these beautiful crossbows features functional, moving parts. They will propel the included bolt a short distance but are not actually made for shooting. The bolt is not propelled with enough force to make this a fully functional crossbow. Nevertheless, do NOT fire the bolt at others. These amazing Medieval Crossbows are all excellent decorative pieces that are, first and foremost, designed to be incredible display pieces.
