    First topic message reminder :

    After having read about them I would really like to build one. I was wondering if anyone had any plans/ experience with making horn and sinew prods. About the only thing I know about them are that they are made from horn and sinew (Capt. Obvious strikes again Making Horn and Sinew Prods? - Page 4 Icon_razz )

    If I can get the process down (and its not too time consuming) I may make a few more to sell for those looking for that extra touch of authenticity to their period crossbow.

    Good luck from me as well. The biggest drawback to all this is that performance is going to suffer on the prod after all the cosmetics are applied. Not sure how much, but some at least.
