The Flemish Arbalest is based on a common 17th century Flemish target bow, itself an example of a design ubiquitous throughout western Europe from the middle ages through the Renaissance. The square-sectioned walnut tiller features a pronounced palm rest below the nut, as well as an elongated stock that rests on top of the shoulder, creating a very robust platform for accurate shooting. The trapezoid-shaped steel lock plates with brass screws add a nice visual flair, while the steel bow irons hold the prod and stirrup securely to the stock, and make it very easy to fine-tune the accuracy of the bow.
