They are expensive, damage most targets, and are usually not used for practice.
There are two main types of broadheads used by hunters: The fixed-blade broadhead and the mechanical broadhead types.
If snares were used, the use of cords and knots which would also have been adequate for the production of bows is implied.
The employment of snares also demonstrates a practical understanding of the latent energy stored in bent branches, the main principle of bow construction.
Some arrows may simply use a sharpened tip of the solid shaft, but it is far more common for separate arrowheads to be made, usually from metal, horn, rock, or some other hard material.
Arrowheads may be attached to the shaft with a cap, a socket tang, or inserted into a split in the shaft and held by a process called hafting.
As archaeological artifacts such objects are classed as projectile points, without specifying whether they were projected by a bow or by some other means such as throwing since the specific means of projection (the bow, the arrow shaft, the spear shaft, etc.) is found too seldom in direct association with any given point and the word "arrow" would imply a certainty about these points which simply does not exist.
Such artifacts can be found all over the world in various locations.
Split-shaft construction involves splitting the arrow shaft lengthwise, inserting the arrowhead, and securing it using ferrule, sinew, rope, or wire.
Modern arrowheads used for hunting come in a variety of classes and styles.
An arrowhead is a tip, usually sharpened, added to an arrow to make it more deadly or to fulfill some special purpose.
