The Crecy is the 14th Century heavy military arrow that may well have been the scourge of the French in 1346. 


With a short Type 8 bodkin, barrelled shaft and long fletchings combined with the wide flattened nock of the 14th Century - the precursor to the horn reinforced nock of the 15th Century - this arrow is suitable both for distance and armour penetration from bows between 120lb and 180lb.
