Bag, Arrow

As seen in pictorial references from the later Middle Ages, such as the Schilling Chronicles, and as reconstructed in "The Medieval Soldier" by Embleton & Howe.

Accepts 12 arrows up to 32" long, including arrowhead. Broadheads may decrease length and number of arrows which will fit in the bag. Includes leather spacer, leather tie for points. Closes on each end with drawstring. Arrows not included.

The nocks of the arrows should be inserted into the holes in the spacer with the spacer behind the fletches, and the heads covered with a piece of thin leather or cloth (deerskin is best) over them then tied together (use the leather thong included with the bag). Tie the small end of the arrow bag closed and insert the bundle of arrows into the large end, then tie shut.

To withdraw arrows, open the smal l end and remove the tie and cover from the arrowheads. Peel back the cloth of the bag, exposing the heads, then withdraw one at a time. Please keep in mind that it is believed that arrowbags like these were used for transport of arrows more than as a modern quiver.

Linen with braided jute strap.

(Fabric may vary slightly from pictures.)
