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.
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.
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!
