Typically, one thinks of an heirloom only after it’s weathered a few generations of patina-gathering. But before it got handed down to your father and his father and his father’s father, it started out shiny and new on some store shelf. And since there are still a few companies out there making stuff that looks timeless and will last longer than you, we’ve set out to find the new breed of future heirlooms in this weeklong series. Today we’re finding you weapons handsome enough to mount on your wall...

And we always thought Gilded Age would make one hell of a crossbow.
