A while ago I ran into a very neat little product called the Arrowcard. They come in several different configurations to include a dogtag style and a card style that fit into the bottom of a tin, such as an Altoids tin. In essence, these little cards are multi-tool devices that incorporate an actual arrow/spear head into the card.
Being the tinkering type individual that I am, I had to get myself several of these little gadgets to play with and see how they worked. All in all, I ended up getting numerous more and have them laying around the house now because I can’t break them, lose them, or wear them out. Way to go Primalware!
Here is what the dog tag style look like.
I have played with these a bit and have used them for general tasks. Considering the fact that they cost money, I have not ripped one apart just to play with it. Lucky for me, there is a picture online of someone that used the arrowhead as a broadhead on an arrow. After having had these floating around in my pack, truck and around my neck for a couple years I can tell you that they are quite handy. The quality is very good. And I have no doubt that they will be capable of fulfilling their intended purposes. The knife edge on my necklace and card in my Altoids tin have seen quite a bit of use. The one in my tin as even been used to clean a couple rabbits and grouse.
My overall impression is as such: I would not hinge my very existence on one of these cards or tags, but to carry one as a backup or “ah crap” tool I could not see any better use of $15-$25. They really are a neat little product. Not only that, but Erica (the lady you contact to purchase them from) seems really nice via email……
