    Authentic-looking but non-standard taper

    Comments about Medieval Socketed Arrowhead:

    This is one of the most authentic-looking reproduction medieval-style arrowheads I've seen. It is made in Pakistan, and doesn't look mass-produced. Is it hand-forged? Probably not, but it could be. As delivered, the edge is not sharp but can be sharpened with grinder or file.

    Socket taper is steeper than the industry-standard five degres but not as steep as nock taper. This calls for custom tapering of your shafts, and probably is not as secure as a standard taper.

    This point is advertised as "not for hunting" . . . so what else can you do with it? Not much except make replica medieval arrows for display. But when you do that, it looks pretty good! I'm making a comparative display of medieval-style points, including the wicked-looking 3 Rivers long bodkin, which I also highlty recommend.

    A decent arrowhead....

    By Magnus

    from Southern Ontario, Canada

    About Me Beginner

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Appears easy to sharpen
    • Quality Construction

    Cons

    • Will need re-finishing
    • Will require de-rusting

    Best Uses

    • Historical reenactment
    • Target Shooting

    Comments about Medieval Socketed Arrowhead:

    I purchased these points with the intent of using them at historical reenactments (target shooting). I have yet to mount them to a shaft. They did have some rust on them, and likely will need to be cleaned and re-blackened. The edge is a little thick, but with some filing could easily be sharpened. In terms of their historical accuracy, I'm no expert, but they appear consistent with broadheads that I have seen in the archaeological record. A good investment for the price.

    Comments about Medieval Socketed Arrowhead:

    I was thirteen years old when I got these and the rest of my arrow making supplies. I was very pleased with the build of the heads. But I was a little disapointed with the oval heads... they weren't sharp enough for me. They are great.

    • Paper weight

    Comments about Medieval Socketed Arrowhead:

    Used in manufacture of medieval crossbow bolts.

    Great?- It is an arrow head.

    Appearance is that of a low quality cast product with some very rough charistics. Took substantial amount of time to get it up to the standards of our product.

    Ordered 6 of them. Big differences between each pieces. Some sockets are small, some big. Some are not aligned making straight shooting difficult.
