Making a primitive arrow

In the grand scheme the arrow sent by the archer does the work. It is the most critical component of the bow and arrow!

The “primitive arrow” is only primitive when compared to modern advancements but can be just as accurate and deadly.

This Masterclass will teach you how to create wooden arrows that will be straightened, spined, hardened and fletched by YOU.

The arrows will be made of Hazel and fletched with real sinew, hide glue and goosefeathers.

Hardening & Roasting

Hand carved self nock


Primitive Finish
