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

Step 3:

You can use a mini knife sharpener or traditional wet stone to give the arrowhead that razor sharp cutting edge. Below also shows the less difficult version with an oval-shaped broadhead that I didn’t cut into an arrow shape. The arrow shape advantage over the oval, is the back barbs, to cause more damage if the animal attempts pull out an arrow.

Sharpening is obviously the best step to make sure you have max penetration of the arrow head, but it’s not completely necessary. Even with no sharp edge, it still would make a very effective arrowhead at the high speeds arrows achieve.

The 99c store kitchen knife sharpener makes fast work of sharpening the edge to be razor sharp.

The finished product…..2 versions of a highly effective arrowhead.

I like to keep at least 4 or 5 of these easy and cheap heads in my bug out bag, with a roll of duct tape for fletching (which gives the arrows stability, we’ll cover that in another post). Then I know I can just find the wood for spines and bow while I am on the GO! The most effective way to use these is to just split a wood dowel one end, and bind the head in between the two halves with some type of binding to reinforce them.

We have other blog posts covering the many material out there for fabricating arrow spines for your new-found spoon arrowheads. We will cover the different ways arrowheads could be attached to each type of spine, along with the pros and cons of using each kind of material.

See you out there!
