Brazed arrowheads

In 1405, a statute of Henry IV ordered that arrowheads should be "well boiled or brazed" and "hardened at the points with steel".


These are my new Mary Rose arrowheads, which will available on the website soon, and will now be fitted to all Mary Rose arrows ordered via the website, unless otherwise specified! One barbed head was recovered from the Mary Rose, and these will fit through the holes in a correctly sized arrow spacer.


They have soft sockets (iron can be ordered for extra authenticity) and hardened medium carbon steel cutting edges forge-brazed on.


Heads made in a similar way have been found all across the UK, especially at locations such as Towton and Holm Hill, and these are based on extant heads I've examined at Salisbury Museum
