By Ingilborg Sigmundardottir of Caid, with the most generous assistance of Tighearna Lonan Dubh And the Guardians of Saint Artemas
The purpose of this article is to give a brief overview of the construction of Siloflex combat arrows for SCA heavy
archery combat use. As with any pictorial, this is meant to serve as a
general guide. The assistance and tutelage of an experienced combat archer
or Marshall is invaluable in these matters. These arrows are legal in Caid.
Please check your local kingdom rules for applicability.
There are many ways to build these arrows, this is neither the “only” way nor the “right” way. For more ideas, instructions and assistance please refer to Tessa the Huntress’s site at http://www.combat-archery.com.
In this pictorial we are using tennis balls as blunts, and a special nock designed and built by the archers of Saint Artemas.
Happy combat archery!!!
