From what I'm seeing, both the foreshaft, and the tenon cut horn nocks are a solution looking for a problem.

The bamboo seems good enough with a reinforced self-nock, and a glued on tip.

That is good news!

I read through your build-a-long a few times while waiting on my cane to dry. Great job!

This is great! I have been using these stakes to make arrows for a bit now and everyone keeps saying I am crazy for it. I would actually go through stacks of them until I found the straightest ones and I glue ratchet heads as blunt tips for stump and small game shooting. I did not wrap he knock and mine were just buzzed out with a bandsaw and quickly sanded. I will be updating my technique with these tips thanks !!!!
