Forging the Rebar Arrowhead - Coming Soon!

I've been getting lots of requests to do another arrow video, especially on how to process feathers without a grinder or lots of tools.

While I'm using Doug fir shafts, wood dowels would work as well. The point on this arrow is forged from a piece of 3/8" steel rebar as weighs in at 150 grains. The arrow is spined for a 52 pound centershot bow, which works great out of this 60 pound Bear Cub shoot-around longbow.

Thanks for watching and enjoy!

Thanks to Jim Keffer of the PSK for the arrow shafts and dowel-making tips!
