See Rediscovering the Arms and Armor of Tibet, p.195 for a group of similar examples and note that while the chapter is on archery equipment, only that single set of arrows is shown. This example is probably 18th century, though dating Tibetan weapons is exceedingly difficult. Some preserved in temples can be 500 years old and look near new while most Tibetan articles are well used and virtually unchanged over centuries. 25 3/4‰۝ long hard wood with self nock and long brown duck fletching. Long black binding segment at the point. Spade-shaped iron point with cylindrical bases. Excellent preservation but for minor damage to the fletching.
