Fellwalker Boltwrights

Often Imitated, Never Duplicated

An unfortunate state of affairs
Research, Authorship, and Intellectual Property Rights in The Real World (posted July 4, 2006)

Fellwalker Boltwrights online store is under renovation... Please check back with us this September for new bows, new merch, a reenactors and historians book catalog (including UK and European publications) and new combat and marshaling gear.

Fellwalker Boltwrights builds Medieval and Renaissance style crossbows for historical reenactment combat games, such as those practiced by the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc..

Fellwalker Boltwrights is M Fellwalker and Family (Her Ladyship Morgan Fellwalker and m'ladies Arafel and Luthen Arbaletrier in the SCA).

All bows feature a hardwood tiller with hand rubbed finish, locking pin release mechanism with brass trigger, aluminum alloy prod with rawhide cover, waxed linen bindings, and stock bows are available in draw weights from 600-1000 inch pounds (approx. 9 lbs per inch of draw) Other poundages can be built by request.

All bows in this line have a 1 1/4" wide bolt channel to accomodate golftube or Siloflex shafted bolts, or Fellwalker style APD fiberglass crossbow bolts. They do not fire target, hunting or bolts designed only for safe use in "light" (under 600 inch pounds) reenactment bows. ( Please see our target crossbows, here)

A kit containing a choice of 1) pre-cut parts for 1 dozen Fellwalker APD bolts; or 2) pre-cut parts for 1 dozen Omarad tipped Siloflex bolts, comes with each bow purchase. Bolt kits may also be purchased seperately

Arrow and Thrust and Throw Siloflex javelin kits are also in development
