    Comanche Arrow Replica

    $140.00

    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.

  • Sioux Arrow Replica 3

    $150.00

    This replica Sioux arrow is a copy of 4 matched Yankton Sioux arrows that were collected in 1869 and are currently in the Smithsonian. This arrow copies the originals in every respect. The shaft is made of a hardwood shoot and it’s fletched with turkey wing feathers.  The point is made from a circular saw blade.  Sinew wrappings secure the feathers and the point.  The green and blue paint match the colors on the original arrows.  This arrow was associated with a sinew backed bow that had rather thick limbs and was likely a very powerful bow.  Its estimated draw weight was around 60 lbs and would have been a serious war/hunting weapon capable of inflicting serious wounds on enemy or prey alike.  This arrow is shipped in a sturdy PVC pipe to ensure safe delivery to your door. Free shipping to all U.S. destinations.
