How to Turn a Spoon Into a Deadly Arrowhead Survival Weapon

Here is Step 1 on How to Turn a Spoon Into a Deadly Arrowhead Survival Weapon

Step 1:

Light your plumber’s torch and heat your spoon end, holding it with a pair of heavy duty pliers because it will get to be a red hot forging temperature. Then use the anvil surface on your vice, or any hard flat surface, to forge down the spoon flat.

Repeat the process of heating and hammering, until the spoon is totally flat to provide an arrow that slices through the air. Leaving in that curve of the spoon head even a little would act as a rudder and take your arrow way off course.

I also forged down a one inch section of the spoon neck, flattening it to same thickness as the spoon head. This makes it wider to cut in notches later, and also makes it so the section of the arrowhead in the arrow spine is not too thick to prevent arrows from splitting.
