Matched Black Arrow Insert Heads

$3.50

Consider the value. 

We all know that when we put an arrow into a piece of steel, a rock, or any unyielding object, the arrow breaks.  The reason for this is is because the arrow has too much force and momentum and will fail at the weakest point, which until now, was the wooden shaft.  By transferring the weakest point of an arrow from the middle of the arrow where the wood is, to the “tang” at the back of the head, and then reinforcing the bamboo at the tip with a brass collar, the arrow will fail at THAT spot rather than the bamboo shaft.  What this means is that the arrow point can be gently straightened or perhaps replaced.  The rest of the arrow is just fine!  How much do you spend on broken wooden arrows in a year?  I have only broken ONE black arrow in my quiver in the last year.

These heads are not only incredibly hard to destroy, but like all high carbon steel, they aren’t brittle steel, they are flexible.  The fitted brass collar helps protect the end of the bamboo arrow when a mishap occurs.

The weakest spot in any wooden arrow is the arrow shaft itself. Bamboo is no exception. However, when you transfer the weakest point to the back of the head, and combine the flexibility of good high carbon steel with a tough HIGH QUALITY bamboo arrow shaft, then the arrow survives.

There are 3 style of arrow points to choose from.  All are hand forged and they all match in weight.

I have looked for a matched set of these types of heads for over 20 years.  I have never seen a matched set of 12 arrow heads of this style before.  To my knowledge, these matched heads are unobtainable anywhere else. Made of hand forged high carbon steel, and guaranteed to match within 5 grains across the entire set of heads, and each set will come in matching weights of 100 grains, 125 grains, 145 grains, 165 grain heads, and 190 grains.  

NOTE:  THE ROUND TARGET POINTS HAVE TWO DIFFERENT DIAMETERS.  FOR LIGHTLY SPINED SHAFTS (BELOW 35 POUNDS OF STATIC SPINE) YOU WILL WANT THE “SKINNY” HEADS WHICH ARE VERY SLIGHTLY NARROWER THAN 3/8 INCHES.  FOR THOSE ARROW SHAFTS ABOVE 35 POUNDS OF STATIC SPINE, YOU WILL WANT THE “FAT” HEADS WHICH ARE 3/8 INCHES IN DIAMETER.

In the photo above left, you can see a “skinny” and “fat” version of the 125 grain round target head, and a 145 grain round target head.

This is the first real breakthrough in wooden arrows since the spine tester!  They offer real step forward in arrow durability.

Description

THESE INSERT STYLE HEADS ARE WHY BLACK ARROWS ARE THE BEST VALUE IN WOODEN ARROWS TODAY.

 

 

Because these heads are made of HIGH CARBON STEEL, they are flexible rather than brittle.  Good forged steel weapons were a true step forward from the brittle iron weapons of the iron age.  They can nearly always be bent back into position…GENTLY.  In the photo on the right end, you can see what happened when I shot one of my black arrows into a 2 X 4 target frame at 20 yards.  I was able to simply tap it back into position and spin test it.  I’m still shooting that arrow today.

The arrow head in the middle was an errant shot of mine on the same range but into a piece of angle iron.  It left a large dent in the angle iron, but you can see that the head was simply too bent to trust.  These heads can be replaced with a new head, if you do it correctly.

These MATCHED heads come in 3 styles.  Each set of heads you buy, whether in groups of 6 or 12 WILL BE MATCHED BY WEIGHT.  They are all hand forged and have been degreased by me for you to immediately place in service.  For this reason, there may be just a bit of incidental rust here and there which will clean up very nicely.

Nearly all of the heads I sell are the ROUND TARGET HEADS, which are legal on any archery range, as well as any SCA or Ren Faire range.  However, you may also buy LEGAL HUNTING BROADHEADS, smaller varmint broadheads, and the super bad-ass armor piercing BODKIN STYLE heads, which may not be acceptable on some ranges.  

All heads are HAND-FORGED HIGH CARBON STEEL.  It is important to note that you will have to sharpen your own broad heads and varmint heads.  

 


 

Just so you know what to expect…

WHEN ANY ARROW POINT ARRIVES AT MY WORKSHOP, THE FIRST THING THAT HAPPENS IS A THOROUGH DEGREASING AND SCRUBBING.  UNTIL THEY ARE PLACED INTO A SHAFT, THEY WILL REMAIN THIS WAY.  LATER THEY WILL BE BUFFED UP AS YOU SEE.  BUT IF YOU ORDER THESE HEADS BY THEMSELVES, THEY MAY ARRIVE WITHOUT THE SHINE YOU MIGHT EXPECT.  THERE MAY ALSO BE A BIT OF MINOR SURFACE RUST.  They will clean right up with a bit of sandpaper, or just go shoot them.  That’ll knock the rust off!
