    Everybody knows that Peter Lyon made the real swords for the LOTR movies, and some of the aluminium stunt blades, and that WETA made the urethane safety versions.

    Does anyone know who made the hero bows for the movies? The actual firing, working, real bows that the actors fire real arrows from.
