SKANE BOW

The Skane Bow is our least expensive medieval-style crossbow. It's fitted with the simple but robust push-pin lock, actuated by a bottom-mounted wooden lever. An archaeological excavation in the early 20th century recovered two all-wood crossbows from the moat of Swedish Skane Castle , which was destroyed in a peasant uprising @ 1525. Our version of this simple peasant-bow is fitted with the standard aluminum-alloy prod, (uncovered) and wooden trigger/lever.

Features: The notch/push-pin lock is robust and very quick to load, making it an excellent entry-level bow for recreational shooting and combat-games. On the down-side, notch-locks will wear bowstrings faster than a roller lock and a certain amount of energy is lost through the 'slap' action of the string against the bolt. Despite these drawbacks, the Skane bow gives excellent value for the money and should provide many trouble-free years of service.

With aluminum-alloy prod, steel foot-stirrup, brass bolt-clip/string-snubber and hardwood thumb pins, to facilitate loading from the hip.

Highly recommended is the Bone Notch, this option reinforces the string notch with bone or horn. This makes the release smoother and makes the lock more durable.
