This medieval arrowhead is styles with a larger crescent shaped blade. While there are many theories these arrows were used for cutting ropes at great distance, many believe they were just a simple hunting arrow.One theory is that they were utilised to cut and damage rigging and sails on ships. However, historical reconstructions and reenactments have proven this to be difficult.
Great for archery tournaments and competitions, as the weight and size of the arrow head provide a challenge to traditional longbow and recurve users compared to modern field heads.
