Flemish Arbalest

This is a style of crossbow that was popular much later on (15th - 16th centuries), and is commonly known as the Flemish Arbalest. It is characterized by it's stocky square cross section, as well as by the flat section on the bottom beneath the nut, and that the trigger comes out from the curve behind the flat section, and stays very close to the stock.

This crossbow could have been seen across Europe as crossbows in this time were often manufactured and then shipped around to different countries.
