A piece of history - Crossbow and Excalibur
King Arthur once called his sword "Excalibur", which was stuck in the stone and possessed magical powers according to the well-known Arthur legend. The history of the crossbow, which dates back to the 5th century B.C., is similarly steeped in history, but surrounded by less mysticism and myth. In ancient Greece, archetypes of the crossbow were already used at this time. Also the Romans had already developed a crossbow with the "Balliste". In Asia, a forerunner of the crossbow was also widespread, because fighters at the Great Wall of China fended off their enemies with it. The Normans in France finally made the crossbow warworthy and used it in larger battles. Because of the simple operation and the fact that it did not make any special physical demands on the shooters, the crossbow was quickly preferred to the normal arrow and bow and was used above all for defense. However, the former wooden and metal construction is now long outdated because of its heavy weight and weather sensitivity.

Regardless of Merlin, Arthur and other legendary stories, the term "Excalibur" is known today above all for the most precise recurve crossbows worldwide, some of which reach just as high speeds as a compound crossbow.
