Weighing in at 26 grammes, and being 5.1cm wide and 9cm in length, a regular bow will not effectively fire this arrowhead. Its width would have made it inappropriate for penetrating armour, and its weight would have limited flight distance and accuracy, but the wound it would have inflicted is quite radical and sword-like. A professional medieval archer had a variety of arrow types in his quiver for different tasks - arrows for fire-starting, arrows for short range armour piercing, arrows for long range accuracy - and heavy broad arrowheads such as this: oftentimes called a war horse-stopper for reasons that can be well imigined. The neck of the arrowhead is 1cm wide at its base, then tapers slightly. And yes, it's sharp!
Message from client: "These are BIG, 400 grains and basically 2"x3" would take a 1/2" shaft to fit this beast. Any bow above 50# would fire it just fine, depends on length and diameter of shaft as to the spine vs poundage of bow vs required weight needed for broadhead. This head for instance would best suite a 70# horn bow with a large size bamboo shaft at around 28-29.5" to get the proper spine and energy stored from the limbs. I use 220 grain same measurements with 55# and harvest every big game animal on the planet damn near-lol they work."
