A recurve crossbow is a bow that has tips curving away from the archer. The first historical records about the crossbow originated from China from the year 200 BC.

Crossbows were good only during sieges. The ballista was an ancient missile weapon which launched a large projectile at a distant target. It was created around 400 BC. The ballista was upgraded crossbow.

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
