Description

FINNISH BOW

The Finnish crossbow (1350-1600) got it’s start with an article on replicating traditional Finnish crossbows. A number of long, slender Germanic-style crossbows were included. I can’t positively date these bows… the article was written in Finnish, but their appearance is very close to a crossbow preserved in Dresden, that is said to date to the mid or perhaps early 14th century.

Like the Finnish bows, the Dresden bow has a long, slender stock, rounded contours, and an enlarged head with bound-in prod. Our ‘Finnish’ bows are always a hit at medieval meets, like Pennsic War, and quite honestly I think they’re among the prettiest bows I make. Originals tend to be very long, but I don’t recommend making custom bows much longer than your trousers inseam.
