How to Make a Medieval Arrowhead

The power of medieval longbows have been lauded since the days of Agincourt and King Henry V. While the bows were powerful, the arrowheads did the killing and penetrating armor. Here’s how you can make your own.

The piercing power of a medieval-style arrowhead can be fun to fling down-range, but can also be a great tool for traditional archery hunting.

Turning old rebar into something a bit more useful isn’t as hard as it may at first sound. A little fire and a hammer will make short work of the metal and be educational in the process.

So, which DIYer is ready to grab the matches, scrap metal, and hit the anvil? Good luck.
