Hey fellows!

 

 

This is me forging a European style socketed shorter bodkin arrow head for target practice. I was making these arrow heads for my own needs because I am building some arrows at the moment. In the end of the video you can see some other heads alongside with the one I forged, inter alia also a Manchurian style tanged arrow head about which I am soon going to make a tutorial video.

This video is more of artistic nature, but I show all steps, so it also services as tutorial as well.

 

You can also see a picture of the arrrow heads I made along with the one in the video as an attachment to this post.

A very nice video and nice work too!  Here is a recent attempt of mine.  The leaf-shaped point is 3.5 in. (8.9 cm) long and 3/4 in. (1.9 cm) wide at the widest point.  The socket is more or less 3/8 in. (10mm) at the mouth.
