Introduction: A VERY Strong K'nex Bow an Arrow

Picture of A VERY Strong K'nex Bow an Arrow

This is my first k'nex weapon after a passage down the ipod stand road. This bow uses 19 pieces excluding ammo. This bow can penetrate cardboard! (just penetrate, not go through). The prototype was made from my friend cj81499's knex. He has one too.

Step 1: Parts List.

These are all the parts you will need to gather. They are all in basic form except for the orange ones.

Step 2: The Pulley and Support System.

This is the wheel and support system step. The wheels or pulleys are the heart of the bow. The support helps it not bend and break.

Step 3: The Point of the Bow and Band.

Picture of The Point of the Bow and Band.

This step provides a area where stabilization can attach in the next step. And it is also a support. The band is very specific. I have never tried it without this type of band.

Step 4: The Stabilization.

Picture of The Stabilization.

This is the stabilization that stabilizes it. For best results put the orange connector In the middle And pull back all the way.
Have fun with this potenially deadly bow and arrow!

seniorpancakeman (author)2011-06-14

jceason (author)NYPA2011-05-08

I give it *5!!

BalintRules (author)NYPA2010-08-04

I rated it 4.0*

Pure power just doesn't cut it anymore. The fact that it's only 22 parts doesn't help either.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-07-27

does the fact that it goes 80 feet help?

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-07-27


NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-07-27

then what does count?

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-07-27

well, something new gets it bonus points.

NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-07-27

isn't this new? where's the processer?

DJ Radio (author)NYPA2009-07-27


NYPA (author)DJ Radio2009-07-28

ok. does this get any points?

jceason (author)2011-05-08

Where do you get the orange rods?

sukinmaru (author)2010-10-20

I actually quite like this! 5* for the fact that there are few bows on this site!

UberBen56 (author)2010-08-21

If you attach a yellow semi circle connector to the end of the "arrows" right in the center of the connector, the arrows will spin and be stable in flight, increasing accuracy. This will shave off a little range, though.

wow! I cracked a window with this! (on accident, of course) Incredible

NYPA (author)donut hole2010-07-22

NYPA (author)glugnar2009-07-29


glugnar (author)2009-07-29

this is sweet i put a small rubber band on mine and pulled it back really far and it went through cardboard! All the way through!

NYPA (author)glugnar2009-07-29

Thank you!

NYPA (author)2009-06-23

you push the rod in from the tip of it. then it will catch it.

NYPA (author)2009-06-22

this thing does go though cardboard if you used the right type of band.

NYPA (author)2009-06-22

you are kidding!

NYPA (author)2009-06-16

sorry what?

NYPA (author)2009-06-11

That's right.

cj81499 (author)2009-06-11

this arrow is not a scam it really can cut through cardboard (not all the way but close) only with different rubber bands you need to put the orange conecter in a different place P.S. I gave NYPA the orange rods he used as amo
