NorthStar is a premier supplier of safety missiles and components for reenactment combat archery. Visit our Online Store to see items related to reenactment combat archery. Due to their extremely rigid safety standards and consistent methods of manufacture, we offer Lu-Shan UHMW Blunts and the new Fat Head Blunts*. There are now more than one type of blunt out there and their application and installation instructions vary.

Please thoroughly familiarize yourself with the types and seating methods before showing up on the field. Failure to do so could have serious consequences, not the least of which is injuring a fellow combatant. This circumstance aside, there are few things more irritating than to arrive geared up for battle only to have your entire ammo supply flunked by a marshal for improper construction methods.

* Fat Head Blunts are allowed in the following Kingdoms:

AnTir Aethelmearc   Atlantia East Gleann Abhann Trimaris West Middle   Meridies and Ansteorra

In Caid and Calontir FatHead blunts have been reclassified as experimental. Consult your Kingdom Marshalate to understand any restrictions associated with that reclassification.

NOT Ealdomere or Lochac

NEW - 02/20/2022 - About the new Star Blunts
The new STAR blunt is being tested by the SCA with the Wonderful Baroness Sara. It has been approved for use by the EMP, but is still being tested by the SCA. Unlike the hand carved, UHMW inner core of the Fathead and the Fathead-2, the Star Blunt has a redesigned inner core that is injection molded. This innovation vastly improves consistency over the hand milled UHMW. Externally it looks exactly like the Fathead-2 blunt except for the color. All a Fathead-2 blunts are black. The STAR blunts will be different colors, but not black. 

For any official word on the status of testing and experimental usage at Gulf Wars, please visit Baroness Sara's Combat Archery page

We are pleased to offer high quality 1/4" solid fiberglass pultrusions custom formulated in SCA-approved materials and fabricated exclusively for NorthStar Archery by certified manufacturers. Remember, fiberglass pultrusions are not created equal. Using a variety of resins, core materials and uniformed glass filaments, Maclean delivers quality and consistency far above competing and off-the-shelf products. Maintaining dimensional tolerances within ten thousandths of an inch, and post-production tolerances in excess of industry standards, you are assured a predictable durable product, free from defects. We NEVER sell factory seconds or mismatched stock as you will find with other suppliers.

Don't be fooled by low-cost rod stock. Final assembly of your arrows or bolts is not the time to discover that they don't quite fit or the adhesives won't stick, or they are curved. If you want consistent, accurate rod specifically designed for SCA combat arrows, trust none other than NorthStar Archery shafts.
