    Comanche Arrow Replica


    This replica Comanche arrow is an exact copy of one that’s in a set of 16 in the Smithsonian that I personally examined back in 2014. The group of arrows was part of a complete archery set including the bow, quiver and bowcase that was captured off a Comanche warrior in 1868 near Paint Creek, Texas. This arrow copies the original in every aspect.

    The shaft is made of a dogwood shoot. It’s fletched with a mix of turkey wing and tail feathers (a very common feature of many Plains arrows). The fletch is secured front and back with sinew but they aren’t glued to the shaft, just like with the original I copied.. The paint design copies the original. The dark blue is laundry bluing, which many southern Plains arrows were decorated with during that time. They would obtain the bluing from settlers and use it to decorate their arrows. The shaft has 3 straight shaft grooves that were common on many Plains arrows. The front of the shaft is tapered and it’s tipped with a metal point made from a circular saw blade and it’s held with a wrapping of deer sinew and the front is also decorated with laundry bluing. Although difficult to see in the photos, the front of the shaft has small dents made by holding the shaft with the teeth when the shaft was straightened. The original arrow also had these same dents from the same technique, so I followed suit.

    This arrow is one of the reasons the Comanche came to dominate the southern Plains. Their fierce fighting capabilities, coupled with their expertise on the horse is why they were called Lords of the Prairie. Here’s your chance to own a copy of a real piece of American history.

  • Northern Paiute Arrow

    Northern Paiute Arrow Replica


    This arrow is a copy of an authentic Northern Paiute arrow that’s currently in the Favell Museum in Klamath Falls, Oregon.  This arrow is believed to have come from the Paiute living in Northern Nevada, around Pyramid Lake.  The main shaft is made of reed, with a hardwood foreshaft.  The foreshaft is painted red and it’s tipped with a Desert Side Notched point of obsidian that’s glued in place with pine sap glue and a wrapping of deer sinew.  It’s fletched with turkey wing feathers that are applied with a pronounced twist.  This imparts spin to the arrow in flight to improve stability and accuracy. It also has two bands of red painted under the feathers.

    This arrow is shipped in a sturdy PVC pipe to ensure safe delivery to your door.  Free shipping within the U.S.

    Arrow Specs:  Northern Paiute replica, reed with hardwood foreshaft and obsidian point.  27-inches long.

    Northern Paiute Arrow Replica


    This beautiful arrow is a based on arrow fragments that were recovered in the 1930’s from Roaring Springs cave in SE Oregon.  The fragments are currently in the collection of the Univ of Oregon Museum of Anthropology and I personally examined them while researching for the Northern Paiute Bow and Arrow video.  If you’re interested in owning that video, click here.

    The main shaft is reed with a hardwood foreshaft.  It’s tipped with a small obsidian point that’s held in place with pine sap glue and a wrapping of deer sinew. It’s fletched with turkey tail feathers held with sinew.  The paint design under the feathers copies the very paint design that was on the original arrow fragment, but unfortunately it was broken just a few inches in front of the feathers, so we don’t know what the front of the arrow looked like.  So the paint design on the front is purely a guess, but it’s based on some other Paiute arrow fragments and common paint designs we’ve seen.  This arrow comes with an information card and is shipped in a sturdy PVC pipe to ensure safe delivery to you.  Shipping to all U.S. customers is included in the price!
