Crafted from the strongest bamboo and wood, these crossbows are capable of shooting further than your eyes can see in the jungle with your accuracy the only impediment to scoring a hit. Armed with self-crafted bamboo arrows, the hunters able to shoot with remarkable accuracy and feed their tribes. Now you can join our Khmer crossbow-maker in crafting your own personal crossbow! Made from 1 single block of wood and 1 piece of smoked bamboo then strung together by thick twine, your crossbow can be disassembled for easy transportation back home.
