Step 1: Materials

You will need:

A broken arrow

A pen

And some hot glue (optional)


A hacksaw or other suitable cutting device

Sandpaper (high-er grit recommended)

Step 2: The Pen

The Pen will be gutted. Just pull on the front of the pen. If you need to, use some pliers, but try not to marr the plastic. Instead of just throwing the pen barrel away, try making this:

Step 3: Assembly

Cut the arrow down to the size you would like it at, and sand the cut down so it doesn't cut your fingers while you are using the pen. Insert the pen guts into the arrow. Secure with hot glue (I didn't and it still works fine).

Step 4: Finished!

Congrats! You now have your own arrow pen! I didn't have my dremel and didn't cut iit down...Yet.

    dont use a dremel. Use a pipe cutter. Cuts clean and knurls the edges in. And a lot safe. I did the same thing with crossbow bolts but carved the front piece out of wood. Its big enough to take a gel ink cartridge.

    I saw this has already been done by gnose, but i hadn't seen his before i published mine.
