The Little Choppers are best used with a rubber mallet, and while wearing ear protectiom. While I can't get the consistent cuts obtained by buying pre cut fletching, the chopper does produce acceptable fletching for most shooters and shooting activities except, perhaps, those engaged in very high level competition. NOTE: In my Opinion, if you want feathers longer than 4", you will not experience enough of a savings to warrant the extra time and work involved in chopping, as you will not be able to get two fletches out of most of the full length feathers.

        Comments about 3Rivers Little Chopper Feather Die Cutter:

        These little gadgets are handy for cutting your own fletching especially for none-standard sizes and shapes (5 1/2"),I use the remains for my childs' arrow fletching or for split fletching.
        They cut sharp and precisely, one thing to remember, dont try to press on it with the hands, it wont work, a good solid hit with a rubber mallet and the cuts are nearly perfect.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Impeccable.

          I bought the 3" chopper to make feathers for my kids arrows since it was hard for me to find them plus I can find full length feathers in any color I want the practice feathers that came with it was nice but the first chop I made with was right on!

                  It is better to use a width hammer head, so you hit in a greater area.
                  I would use a better quality steel for the cutter so it will never brake or bend, probably it will increase the price but I would pay it gladly

                          First off let me say that the first thing I did was modify the base plate so that I could cut 5" bananas, the chopper was set up for 5.5" and with a little modifying I was able to get the length and height I was looking for. After cutting three feathers it was clear that some other modifications needed to be made. I replaced all the hardware, they used #8 screws that stripped out the wood base right of of the box so I replaced with #10's and they seem to be holding fine. Also I noticed that trimming the end of the quill at a 45 degree angle is required before I chop otherwise the blade want to push the feather under the feather guide and give and inconsistent cut. Wouldn't recommend however you cant beat the price for as little work I had to put into it. No love loss for 3Rivers archery

                            As an outdoor writer, I am always looking for products to recommend that are economical and offer good service to users. This item is priced competitively and does a good job for archers desiring to make their own fletching at a low price. The device allows me to use turkey feathers from birds that friends and I harvest.
