    DSC06066.jpg DSC06068.jpg Just wanted to show off a Japanese arrowhead I have.
    It was used to pierce through armor and dates to around 1500 ( at the earliest ) or so.

    It looks like a "full tang" arrow head so the arrow shaft doesn't break off at/near the warhead. It'd be neat to see it next to a ruler/tape measure to show its scale.

    Yep, it has a tapered full tang.
    The arrowhead itself is 3 inches and the overall length is 11 inches.
    Still trying to work out what the markings say, something like Honda Arrow Works INC. maybe ... LOL
