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....

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.

Pros

  • Ok shape

Cons

  • Quality

Best Uses

  • 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.

      Great authentic arrowhead at a great price. I'm planning on getting more on the next order. They were used quite extensively in the Eastern European countries during the Middle Ages.
