SOLD: Medieval Swiss crossbow in maple with padouk and cherry accents!

Updated: Mar 14

This medieval crossbow features a tiller design common throughout central Europe and Scandinavia. The rotating nut lock is released with a traditional medieval single-axle lever trigger, sometimes referred to as a "tickler". The steel stirrup - a typical rounded style - provides a solid anchor point to step into while spanning the bow.
