New weapon type - Crossbows

We are proud to offer a brand new weapon type at FakeSteel - Crossbows!

Starting with the Heavy Crossbow, inspired by the depictions and originals of the 15th century.The second addition to our new line of LARP crossbows is the Light Crossbow!

It has a polycarbonate bow with a draw strength of 13,5-20kg (30-44lbs) and it’s built to work with standard length IDV bolts. We offer those in our store, as well as high quality quivers with a wooden bottom, sewn out of thick cowhide leather. Those are available in seven different colors and with three different decorations.

The mechanism is of reliable historical design and made out of steel. All of the ropes are hemp and the body is hand carved out of sturdy beechwood.
You can choose between three (in light version just two) styles of stirrups and the same four wood stains we offer with our Blasters.⚫️🟤🔴🟤

We also added a Crossbow Bolt Quiver

Our bolt quivers are built to fit the IDV bolts for our brand-new crossbows. But of course they can also be used for other types of bolts.

They’re designed and made with great care from 4mm thick cowhide leather. The bottom is made from wood to reinforce the quiver’s frame and to increase overall durability, while the top is reinforced with an extra layer of leather for both aesthetical and practical reasons (making the overall thickness of the quiver in the top third 6mm total).

The quiver can be attached to belts up to 3,5 cm wide in 4 ways total for your convenience; the quiver is ambidextrous and can be tilted in angle or hung up horizontally. The backside of the quiver is convex for further user-friendliness.
Using the FakeSteel sold IDV bolts, the quiver’s capacity is 14 pieces comfortably and 19 at the utmost maximum.

The quiver can be ordered in our standard set of colours with the possibility of additional engraved decoration (as seen in our belt-pouches, for example) – either lozenges or waves,both in the top third of the quiver’s height.
