Cross- and Longbows

Hundreds of thousands of soldiers have used crossbows in medieval warfare, for centuries crossbow shooting was one of the most popular sports in Europe, and as a hunting weapon the crossbow is still in use today. These weapons have been in use for over a thousand years and several different structural solutions have emerged for different purposes, from the unadorned infantrymen’s weapons of use to the lavishly decorated competition bows of the nobility. These historical crossbows, which are our own production, are made in Turku, Finland by Pauli Hiltunen, a multiple winner of traditional weaponry competitions.
