I like. Especially the foreshaft which allows the arrow to break free if it need to. I don't know that Ive seen foreshaft used on arrows ...
Nice work

I like that blunt especially Aztec. I've only seen wooden blunts. Do you plan on hunting with these?

cool stuff, Caleb Wink  i love the 'bunny buster'! have you considered doing a spiral wrap on the fletchings?

Steven, actually foreshafts were pretty much the rule rather than the exception on primitive arrows here in the americas, all the way from the artic to the amazon.

No but I've heard good things about it. Jim Hamm was a life saver to me when I was young. They had his book "Bows and Arrows of the Native Americans" at the local library and I read that thing I don't know how many times... Steve Alley is a very talented artist and bowyer. I imagine you couldn't go wrong with a combo like that.
