- Oct 1, 2011This video:shows how to serve the rigging on a sailing ship. It's been done the same way for many hundreds of years.I've always suspected that tools similar to a serving paddle or serving mallet were used for bowstrings. Unfortunately, no documentation whatsoever.Guy

Subject: [SCA-Archery] Serving tool research question
Date: Saturday, October 1, 2011, 5:32 PMI have been asked to find an answer to the following questions:
Was an equivalent device to the modern bowstring server used in the middle ages and/or Renaissance?
Is there some documentation of the device if one was used?
I gave an honest reply to this - I do not know.
Before I dive into the research has anyone done research on this before? Anyone hand wound bow string serving in a period style?
