MORE DETAILS AND SPECIFICATIONS FROM GERMAN KINETICS

SilverFlame broadheads consistently pursue the principle of the single or two-bladed broadhead as one has known them for thousands of years.

My goal is to produce a broadhead with which the bowhunter does not even need to concern himself with the ability to perform, if in place of a skinny deer suddenly a massive hog comes into sight and/or if the impact angle of the arrow by a sudden movement of the game is no longer ideal.

Here by any means the effectiveness is not to be questioned regarding by multi-bladed broadheads. Up to certain game strengths and outside of critical hunting situations, three and multi-bladed broadheads have quite their target-ballistic validation. Innumerable successful hunts confirm this fact.

Unfortunately there is however certain critical hunting situations, in which always everything does not work according to plan and some crucial inches of penetration, are lacking, in order to cause a fast humane death of the game. A multiplicity of cutting blades does not help in these instances, if the vital zone is not reached or is not completely penetrated. In its wake a hurt creature remains, with perhaps some unwanted public resentment, not to mention a very disappointed hunter.

Please consider that a two-blader has to break the bone due to the straight aligning blade arrangement only once, in order to produce a gap for the arrow shaft. A three-blader has to do this repeatedly three times.

 

 
 
 

Made to bring down game of any size as fast and ethical as possible !!

We do not regard broadheads as throw-away articles !!

They should be a high-quality, dependable tool, same as the bow, the arrows or the hunting knife!!

 

SilverFlame Broadheads had been introduced in summer 2003. Since that time they performed flawlessly up to the toughest game strength..

From the amazing game of the northern hemisphere up to the largest big game on the Dark Continent, inclusive African elephant, serious bowhunters as well as experienced hunting guides all over the planet confidentially rely on the performance of the SLIVERFLAME BROADHEADS.

A non-gimmick, ingenious construction, made from high-grade materials at lowest tolerances and carefully honed cutting edges constitutes an incomparable level of quality.

SilverFlame broadheads incorporate an amount of structural integrity that invariably one searches in vain with most other manufacturers. Only an ingenious construction, based on solid design, combined with the correct materials, constitutes a first-class product.

The facts speak for themselves:

FERRULE
Material: AlZnMgCu1,5 F53

Internationally better known under the ASTM designation 7075 T6

This high-strength aluminum alloy contains a tensile strength of 540 N/mm˛ which is approx. 1.5 times stronger than average construction steel and is used in many cases, where high-strength, but light materials are needed.

Aircraft engineers as well as the top technical designers of world class racing bicycles, appreciate the advantages derived from this material.

The ferrules are manufactured in a CNC process. They are in turn ground in a vibratory in order to remove even the finest remaining burr particles. The surface finish will be done with anodizing in the color black silk matt.

As technical characteristic the ferrules show a "round butt", thus a radius to the arrow shaft. Consequently the use of conical washers (U.B.A.R.'s etc.) is eliminated, thus minimizing retraction resistance of the arrow from the practice target.

The thickest portion of the ferrule  has a diameter of 8.5mm (> 21/64”) and is thus somewhat thicker than most of today’s more common carbon hunting shafts, with diameters amounting to somewhat less than 8mm (5/16”).

The transition between the main body and the shank, which get screwed together with the thread into the insert, was turned not on 90°, but provided with a small radius by 0.5mm. This radius effectively provides two distinct advantages, an increased bending stability and allows for the self-centering in the insert of the arrow shaft.

A CNC-Laser cuts the blades from a tool steel board. The thickness of 1.80mm (.071”) and the grinding of the cutting edges are made in a CNC wet-grinding process to preserve the hardness of the steel.
No other manufacturer offers this blade strength!!
Prior to this process the blades are bead-blasted and vibratory ground.

The blades are precisely tempered to 55-57 HRC.
In order to ensure a homogenous molecular structure of the steel, the blades are then subzero quenched in a special cooling chamber.

The final process in achieving razor sharpness is accomplished by de-burring of the edges on a wheel containing elephant leather and a special polish paste.

The rear blade (trailing edge) is not sharpened at the factory. This feature serves the intended purpose, as well as the rounded off ferrule, an easier arrow retraction.
All blades have a cutting diameter of 1-1/8" to meet all relevant hunting laws and regulations worldwide.

The treatment of the blades is made by a specialized company for high-quality industrial knives in Germany’s "knifemaker capital city" SOLINGEN.

Blade

Material: X90CrMoV18

Internationally also known under the ASTM designation 440 B. You will recognize that alloy from high-grade hunting knives as well

In actual bowhunting practice you will appreciate the first-class combination of edge-retention and easy resharpening.

The blades are a ready to use right out of the box! That’s right, both the assembled broadheads as well as the replacement blades are razor sharp and will take the hair off your arm effortlessly.
Handle with the utmost precaution!!
SAFETY FIRST AND ALWAYS!!

Screws

The two screws used for blade attachment (M2.5 x 5) are made from stainless steel (V2A).

The screw head has a TORX drive (T6), which is considerably more durable than a hexagonal or slot drive.

The screws are not standard parts. They are manufactured exclusively for the SILVERFLAME BROADHEAD. The radius of the screw head corresponds to that of the ferrule.
