Hello all, I am looking at vintage broadheads, I am looking at the 1964 Bear Razorheads mainly, but I would like to make a furrel like hte 1965 Pearson Deadheads, I was wondering if anyone had any insight in how i could make them, besides 3D modeling, any advice yall?

First up 1965 Large Dead head, the furrels are the same


1964 Bear Razorhead is next

Ive got a bunch of those Bear razor heads somewhere.....My dad was a machinist and he made a bunch of the ferrules when I was a kid but have no idea how he made them
The ones on the Bear razor heads are fairly light weight metal of some knid.
Me.... not knowing much about it ...I would think...they would be made from a metal tube ...heated and pulled while red hot......like one would pull heated glass in glass blowing...Just a thought that came into my head , looking at it and pondering it. Quills

Yah quill they are, I was thinking they heated then used a die, or die pressed and brazed but they didn't look like it, im thinking your right about the metal tube that's heated and pulled
