Matched Hunting Arrowhead Set
These sets have been made with one thing in mind - the Primitive Hunter!
The bases and notches have been heavily ground down. This makes it near
impossible to get that "polished" look, but then again these were not
made for display purposes. They were made to be effective hunting tools.
With this in mind, they were designed with a small side notch. I have
found these to be the best hunting arrowheads as they hold in the arrow
nock very well and have a decreased chance of breaking at the nock.
Furthermore they have been bevelled and made sharp. They are however NOT
razor sharp. Some people advertise their arrowheads this way but it is
simply not possible and we hold no "marketing" lies in describing our
products. Nevertheless, they are sharper than many primitive arrowheads
that were so effective in bringing down the buffalo and other large game
in years past.
These average at 4.3 grams, or about .009 pounds, each, 1 1/2 to 1 3/4'' in length and under 1''
in width. The thickest nock area measures 1/4'' so your shaft will have
to be larger than that. If not, email me so I can get one to fit just
right. Allow 1 week per set to make.
They are made from either obsidian from Oregon or California and flint
from Texas. The type of each material depends on what ever is on hand
and is effective enough for its intended purpose. The arrowheads will
not be the ones shown in the pictures above but close to them in shape. The points within a
set will be very close in size, shape and weight to each other. NOTE:
As these are stone and not steel, they have a chance of breaking if you
hit stone, wood or bone.
While I can not recommend one from the other, as I like them both
equally, if you can't decide which to purchase here are some
Glassy look, sharper edges, quicker
penetration, lighter (-)
dulls quicker, greater chance of breaking
"Looks like stone", heavier, sturdier, edges
last longer (-)
less sharp, slower penetration, heavier on the arrow

purchased the flint and obsidian arrowheads and had success on a Doe.
