arrow +‎ head


arrowhead (plural arrowheads)

  1. (weapon) The pointed part of an arrow.
    • 1879, R[ichard] J[efferies], chapter II, in The Amateur Poacher, London: Smith, Elder, & Co., [], OCLC 752825175:
      Orion hit a rabbit once; but though sore wounded it got to the bury, and, struggling in, the arrow caught the side of the hole and was drawn out. Indeed, a nail filed sharp is not of much avail as an arrowhead; you must have it barbed, and that was a little beyond our skill.
  2. (symbol) The pointed part of an arrow.
  3. Any plant in the genus Sagittaria.
