This crossbow replica was manufactured after the original from Konopiste. The tiller (stock) is made of basswood and the lathe (prod) is made of glass laminate. The trigger mechanism and the stirrups are made of steel. The surface treatment was carried out in the traditional way after historical sources. The lathe is attached to the till by metal brackets. This model represents a transitional crossbow form from the wood to steel lathe. It is a simplified replica that complies completely with the purpose of re-enactment and exhibition.
Please do not shoot from the crossbow without an arrow. This way you can damage the bowstring!
Please read how to replace a crossbow string.
This crossbow is not a toy, you can cause with it serious injury. Read carefully these instructions!
The crossbow requires no special care. The most stressed part is the string. It is recommended to wax it before each use - to extend its lifespan. If even one strand of the string is damaged or torn, do no shoot any longer and replace it with new one.
If your crossbow gets wet (in the rain), wipe it with a cotton cloth slightly and let it slowly (not at the radiator) dry. Then oil the metal parts with WD40 e.g. The tiller is treated with varnish from pressed linseed oil. It is possible to renew the coating after some time, but it is not necessary or even not desirable. The crossbow finish (surfaces) get with time and use so called patina, which is firstly visually beautiful and secondly gives the crossbow a historical look.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
