					Sharp Enough to Pierce and Cut
•          Arrows and broadheads should always be kept sharp;
      otherwise, they are useless. Even newly bought broadheads
      have to be sharpened first before use. Beginners might find it
      challenging but with a lot of practice and perseverance,
      sharpening and testing will be a piece of cake.

•         Traditional sharpening is done on almost all types of
    broadheads, even those for your carbon arrows, and you
    need the proper tools to effectively do the job. As soon as you
    open the packaging and see your new broadheads, you would
    probably wonder why there’s still a need for sharpening. New
    arrows are blunt; the sharp-looking edges are simply factory
    grind that you will use as a guide on how you should file the
    broadhead. Before you grab a quality file, you need to install
    the broadhead first; make sure the head spins straight and it
    is attached securely. Holding it while sharpening is never a
    good idea.

•         If the broadheads you bought are made with high quality
    materials, a single cut bastard file is enough to work on it.
    Remember that the top class arrowheads are made of steel
    that are hardened through several series of heating and
    cooling; nevertheless, the material is still soft enough to be
    filed and sharpened. If you have troubles using a sharpening
    file, you can use diamond, which can bite any hard surface. To
    end up with a perfectly sharpened arrowhead, the trick is to
    sharpen all sides with equal force and angle. You also have to
    test the sharpness of the broadheads.

    Bolts - 6/Pack

    Features:

•       You should file a broadhead from its back towards
    the tip. Keep the file angled based on the factory grind
    and maintain this angle while sharpening the other
    sides; move the file with calculated amount of
    pressure, which should also be maintained. The key to
    making that razor sharp edge is sharpening all sides
    with equal pressure at almost an equal angle. You will
    know that you are doing the right thing when you see
    what archers call “wire edge”. This is presumably the
    steel fragments removed by the file; it is possible that
    they coagulate along the edge and form what looks like
    a thin wire. When you remove this, you will reveal the
    sharp edge you’ve been waiting for.

    Features:

•        To test whether the broadhead for your carbon arrows is
    sharp enough for hunting, you can use the rubber band test
    where a band is stretch on a wooden frame with the strands
    overlapping. If your arrow can cut it effortlessly, you’re good
    to go. Experts can identify a sharp arrowhead by simply
    feeling it with their thumb or shaving the hair on their arm.
    These tests are done by experienced archers, and unless you
    want to shed blood, refrain from trying them.
