Does anyone here know how to sharpen the points to field practice arrow tips? mine seem a little dull, but still good for practice, I'd really appreciate tips/advice.

Tape 300 grit sandpaper to a hard flat surface.  Hold the tip at a 30 degree angle and gently sharpen while slowly rotating the tip.  It's best to keep the tip on the arrow to hold easier.  I have a jig I made from wooden blocks with cutouts to hold my arrow at a perfect and steady angle, but hand and eye seems to work fine.  Experiment.  James.

Gently sharpen using a smooth (or 2nd cut) hand file.
