Bear Paw taper tool
The tool did a pretty good job on the doug fir I tried it on. The point taper did chip out a little when I went too fast, but not enough to make a real difference. My only complaint is that the tapers are not labeled so you have to compare the two ends to determine which is point and which is nock. It would add a little cost to the manufacturing process but would be worth it in my opinion.
I have never tried to cut and tune a wood arrow before and using this Bear Paw Taper Tool made the job super easy. I couldn’t imagine it being any better or easier.
I have been making wood arrows for over 60 years. The Bear Paw Taper Tool is easy to use and hold’s in your hand nice. The taper tool makes the cut really nice.
Next level up from the plastic pencil sharpener type. Handles Dug Fir with ease. Built solid and seems to be of high quality.
