Place the sheet metal in the anvil and heat it to the appropriate temperature. The heated sheet metal is placed on the anvil, hammered, and shaped with magic power. While stretching the sheet metal to prevent it from becoming too thick, the shape is drawn in an arc.
Eventually, a long, narrow, curved trapezoidal plate is formed. It is then heated and quenched again. It is not as hard as a suspension, but it is a plate spring itself, so it has to be both hard and soft.
The steel plate in the water makes a sizzling sound. When the temperature had dropped to a good level, I pulled it out of the water and held it over the fire on the fire pit to raise the temperature a little again and temper it.
This process was carried out three times in total, using different thicknesses of iron plates. The adjustment of the thickness is completely left to the cheat, but the standard is based on my observation of the strength that each of us can exert in our daily lives.
Otherwise, I would have had to measure them with appropriate luggage or something.
Take the three iron plates and return to the wooden plate. The wooden plates are processed to fit the shape of the iron plates. I decided that the iron plate with the blacksmith's cheat would probably be closer to the correct shape.
The wooden plate is adjusted to the bend of the iron plate, and the two are fixed together. The wood and steel reinforce each other. Steel can be made flexible, but not as flexible as thin wood. Wood is flexible, but it is not as hard as iron.
The same work was done twice more, and three bow bodies were completed. However, perhaps because of the unfamiliarity of the work, it was almost dark by this time.
It'll be tomorrow before I string this one up," I said.
I said, and Samija, who was helping Rike clean up, replied.
"Oh, let us do it then.
"Okay. It's your bow, and I'm not used to that.
You may think that bow strings are left unstrung, but in fact they are removed when not in use, and strung each time before they are needed. Samija also strings her bow before she goes out hunting, and removes it when she returns.
I've never had to do that before, because I've only ever had one bow, the one Samija used. If you're going to leave the finishing touches to me, you need an expert.
Done. Well, tomorrow we'll string it up and try it out before we go hunting.
Samija says excitedly.
"Right. Take care of it.
Samija replied with an unbelievable smile, which somehow made everyone else smile too.
The next morning, after the morning prayers, I handed each of the three bows to them as they went out hunting.
I've tried to match them to their strengths, but if you see anything wrong, let me know.
After receiving the bow, each of the three put a string on his or her bow. The strings are made from deer tendon.
The end of the string is tied to the end of the bow, and the other end is tied to the other end of the bow, with that side down and the bow warped the other way.
Samija used the same string that she normally used, so she only had to fasten it to both ends, but the other two had to cut the excess string with a knife.
However, I was a little surprised to see Deanna stringing the strings so easily, even though Liddy had been practicing shooting with a bow, though I had expected her to have some experience since her village was in the forest.
According to her, she had done a lot of it at home. I wonder what the education of the Amour family is like: ....... Marius is probably going to get married and have kids sooner or later, but I wonder if boys and girls can be trained to this level, or if Diana is special like this.
If all of them are trained to the same level, some of them may leave behind anecdotes comparable to those of Tomoe Gozen and Itanaka Gozen in the previous world.
Facing the wooden target in the corner of the garden (which he usually uses for practice), Samija quickly readied his bow, placed the arrow, and drew it.
There are no rules of etiquette as in Kyudo. It's her own best way, honed to earn a living. Still, there was a certain beauty in her appearance.
An arrow is released from the bow that has been drawn. The arrow flew through the air as if it were wrapped in wind, and before you could even blink, it had pierced the center of the target.
"I like this!
Samija exclaimed. Apparently, she liked it.
Are you okay?
It's the first time I've ever had an arrow fly exactly where I wanted it to! Thank you!
With the bow still in her hand, Samija hugged me tightly, and I had to decide whether to be happy or pained.
