12515Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: First Results from Mary Rose war arrow re-creation
- May 7 7:12 PMI have not seen reference to the type of arrow you are referring to in
use in Europe during our primary time of interest. Generally, arrows
used in war are one piece as the removable portion was too fragile to
withstand the rigors of hitting any form of armor.
Chested arrows taper towards both the tip and the nock, keeping their
spine and strength while losing weight.
