Hellrazor - 100 Grain Broadhead
 

Hellrazor - 100 Grain Broadhead

All steel! One piece! Shaving sharp - with no loose blades ever! HellRazor broadheads are the ultimate cut-on-contact one-piece broadheads designed to maximize accuracy and penetration out of today's fast, high-performance bows. (3 Broadheads per Package) We are often asked what type of broadhead we recommend for hunting. The Kodabow team has been around the block a few times and many of us have hunted when traditional recurve bows and longbows were the only archery choices so we have spent sometime with broadheads. Yes -- times have changed. Today, we look past the mechanical broadheads and the replaceable blade types recognizing they do work…… but you want a “Recommendation.” We suggest a “cut on contact” type like the NAP HellRazor for durability, reliability and high performance. These are the strongest broadheads available because of their 1 piece design. They will give maximum penetration on the largest game animals including elk, deer and bear. The broadheads can be resharpened and there are no moving parts. We carry NAP HellRazor broadheads in the 100 gr. weight (and also in 125 gr.) Remember, our Kodabow stock arrows have a 110 gr brass insert so the combined weight of insert and broadhead is 210 grains at the front of the arrow. We say, “get the rock (broadhead) moving and the string (arrow) will follow along”. Broadhead Sharpening Tips: Here is what we have learned about sharpening broadheads after 40 years. Most manufacturers ship sharp broadheads but they can’t spend the extra money to make them razor “super sharp” without adding $10 - $20 per pack and then no one would buy them…….so if you have a 2 blade or 3 blade (fixed blade) broadhead, you have some additional work to do if you want to achieve super razor sharpness. “Super Razor Sharp” means that the edge will shave hair on your forearm and the hair will literally pop off with little effort. Mechanical broadhead blades are an exception and we shoot these types right out of the package. We use flat stones but also use quality sandpaper on a sheet of glass with similar effects. The beginning grit is 300 and we use three more grits up to 1000 to finish. (300, 500, 800, 1000 type of thing). Most of the work is done on the first stone or paper …. 10 passes on a side and then 10 passes on the other side, then 9 passes, then 9 on the other …all the way down to 1 pass per side before moving to the next finer grit where the 10 pass process is repeated again. If there is a good edge on the broadhead already, sometimes fewer passes are needed on the coarse stone. Apply light pressure but do not attempt to remove lots of metal. A sharpie pen is used to blacken the edge and the ink is removed when sharpening which shows exactly where metal is being removed ……building a burr and then successively breaking it off leaving a crisp edge. We find that we are usually cutting a secondary bevel ….that is, a slightly different angle than the manufacturer put on the broadhead especially with a 2 blade broadhead. The last stones or papers are really polishing the edge …..you can also strop the edge with leather or cardboard from a cardboard box for final polishing but with the 1000 grit finish, we have stopped doing that being very happy with the end result just with the 1000 grit. Don’t press real hard at any stage …. Let the tools do the work. Three blade broadheads like the NAP Hellrazor are easy to sharpen because no additional fixtures are necessary. You can lay the broadhead on two edges and push it forward on stone or paper …that is the, the travel direction is towards the point of the broadhead to make one pass. Two blade broadheads are a different story. You can sharpen them as you would a knife but a fixture is better and a nice two blade sharpening fixture made by a company called KME holds a two blade at precise angle to allow each pass on the stone or paper to be exact. It is also easy to flip over to complete the other side passes without removing the broadhead from the device. We have grown fond of two blade broadheads especially on larger animals because of increased penetration. Wear from a quiver during hunting and general use will require that you periodically sharpen up and restore the edges on your broadhead. In that case, use the final two polishing grit levels and you should find satisfactory results with about 50% less of the number of passes especially with a tool steel broadhead like a VPA.
