Boo arrows with 2 feather fletching

Shaft is boo with incised decoration. The point is slate stone, can easily split in a matching size (thickness), shape is made by knapping, sharpened by grinding;  feathers are grey goose.



Boo is short for bamboo.
In this case that boo was a tomato stick in his former life.
Since 6 years or so I harvest my arrow blancs in my garden.
I get 200-300 shafts every year. That boo is Japanese arrow bamboo (pseudosasa japonica).
You can easily straighten the blancs with heat.
