Use of Blunts
Combat arrows and public archery practice arrows must not have points on them. The points must be removed or not attached in the first place. Instead, a so called "archery blunt" must be attached to the combat arrow. Archery blunts are a special product developed in the SCA specifically for combat use. A substitution with other types of blunts is not allowed. Blunt are available for sale within the SCA here!
"A War without Archers is just another melee!" Overheard statement by a Heavy combatant at GNW 2011.
Shafts must have a diameter of 8 mm or 5/16 inch.
Blunts must be secured using a strip of good quality 13mm-wide electrical or fibre tape wound down around the sides of the blunt for at least 13mm, and then up onto the shaft of the arrow for 25mm.
The maximum length for an arrow is 711mm
(28 inches), measured from the bottom of the nock
slot to where the blunt joins the shaft.
Shafts must be made from one of the following woods: Port Orford Cedar, Silver Ash, or Tasmanian Oak.
The shaft of the arrow shall be spirally
or longitudinally wrapped with fibreglass filament tape,
totally covering the surface from the front of the fletching to the tip of the shaft. The taping must
be in good condition without any sign of the fibres lifting from the shaft.
Blunts must be firmly secured to the shaft so that they cannot come off on impact or if the shaft is broken.
To allow inspection of possible punch-through the face of the blunt must not be covered.
