owlbait, I use a three arrow bow quiver bear hunting. Right now this forged head and Woody's knife river flint head will be in my quiver, unless I can get Woody to knap me a Green head to match my arrows [Wink] One needs to be color coordinated in the bear woods! Doc

Jeff,

Neat head, my friend. I have your head you sent me in my quiver....just waiting for the right piggie to come along.

"kennym, I normally shoot 200-235 grain up front. I'll have to see how it flyes. But for Bears, they will usually be close and drop off shouldn't be a big problem. The extra punch should be worth it."

Jeff,hope you didn't take that wrong. I love close shots,I meant it would penetrate like crazy!! Should have said just that! [knothead]

Please tell us how it works when you get to use it!! [thumbsup]

--------------------
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Arrowslinger,
You mount the head the same way as a stone point. I cut a slot with my bandsaw (you can do it by hand) to slide the tang of the point in. Then you'd epoxy and wrap (dental floss, sinew, etc) around the slot to bind everything together.

I once had had a compound shooter Robin hood a self nock that was wrapped the same way. The wrap kept the compound arrow from splitting my arrow. It only mushroomed the self nock. I was pretty impressed with the strength that wrap gave to the wood arrow...Doc

Looks great but isn't it technically a barbed head, which are illegal in many states?

Sorry just curious,

Mark

Doc, how much work could a loincloth be??? [jumper]

I don't know zip from doodah about metal work, but it kinda looks like that damascus head is made from several different pieces of metal that you've welded together. Is that right? Sure makes for one great looking head! [thumbsup] [Not Worthy]
