Broadheads just fall under section 139 of the criminal justice act, bladed and pointed articles. Keep within these rules and they are perfectly legal.I think that the law is that a broadhead is not illegal to own in the UK, but is illegal to use.
Sorry Steve, got to disagree. Sect 139 allows the carry of a folding knife of less than 3" unless you have good cause. The broadheads don't fold so you'd need good cause, which may be a bit difficult to justify.Broadheads just fall under section 139 of the criminal justice act, bladed and pointed articles.

Just reminded me of shooting in a yew bow for a check. I pulled the fourth arrow from the quiver and let is loose, went way high and left and almost through the target. On pulling the arrow from the target i noticed it had lost its field point. Still didnt stop it going almost through the targetNo not fixing loose blade to arrow just pointing out that bits of something legal are legal thus loose broadheads are legal. You do not have to show a reason for arrows, they are for shooting from bows and if the law wanted to restrict bows and arrows more than to prohibit hunting it would have done so, as it has done with crossbows. A field point is pointed thus could fall within the act but does not for the previous reasons.
