In the 13th century when the foundations of the later Swiss state were established this type of quiver belonged among the most common ones. Simplicity and especially usefulness of this quiver were its main strengths appreciated by crossbowmen from the Schwyz canton. The crossbow quiver for bolts used in the "classic" crossbow is made of 2.5-3 mm thick ground cowhide. Carrying loops attached to the quiver's upper extension are used to wear the quiver suspended from the belt. The upper extension and the bottom part of the quiverare connected with a leather strip that is sewn through them.
At your request we can produce this quiver in dimensions that you require. We recommend that the produced quiver be circa 1-3 cm higher than the bolt's total length is. This is up to you decide in relation to the type of bolts you use. The quiver can hold circa 20 bolts. Besides the colour shown in the picture the quiver is available in other colours: see the choice of colour.
Please note: This product is made by hand from genuine leather. This is a purely natural material. Minor differences in the colour and surface texture are its natural characteristics. These small imperfections do not decrease the value of the product. Each piece is to some extent an original.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
