I love times like this when things that seem so thoroughly modern and part of our lives now, often have roots that stretch far into the past. It is a reason a love learning more about weaponry. The items discussed in this forum are composite technologies upon which the owner's life often depended. Such critical items were carefully crafted and the finest examples are marvels of manufacturing, metallurgy, ergonomics, etc. As such few individuals possessed the full range of skills to craft all the components from scratch, so a great deal of coordination was required. Seeing this evidence of prefabrication is really interesting, and an elegant solution to this problem.

Thanks for sharing, Cerjak!
