Just as the single bevel broadhead has proven to be devastating in terms of its accuracy and cutting power, the double bevel broadhead has also shown itself to be another high quality option. The simplicity of the design means that there are no moving parts to worry about, they are solidly built and provide great durability as well as a lot of stopping power.
As the name suggests, these are fixed blade broadheads that feature a cutting bevelled edge that has been ground on both sides of the blade.
Featured below is a selection of double bevel broadheads that are regarded very highly in the industry today. We have put them together in a comparison list format so they may be quickly viewed so that the variations in specifications can be quickly highlighted.
Further down the page is a section that provides more complete details about each one and then we have included more interesting information about why double bevel broadheads have become popular choices.

GrizzlyStik Silver Flame Broadhead
The Silver Flame broadheads are described by the company as an ultra-sharp, tough as nails broadhead that flies great from any bow and penetrates like crazy. This is a head that can be relied on to be effective for all types of big game.
They consist of 440C stainless steel blades with a thickness, depending on the weight, that ranges from .052” to .068”. The blades are also hardened to 58 Rockwell. Strength is provided through the CNC aircraft grade aluminum ferrule which has a diameter of .334” and it makes a smooth transition to the blade.
They are available in packs of 3 and they have been given an MSRP of $89.99 per pack.
DirtNap Gear DRT Broadhead
The DRT part of the name of these broadheads stands for Dead Right There and they make the claim that the cutting penetration is significant enough to provide sheer stopping power.
The blades are Teflon coated 420J2 stainless steel and the double beveled edges of the 1-3/16” x 1-9/16 blade provide deadly cutting power. They measure .051” thick. This is combined with a 7075 Aircraft Grade Aluminum ferrule that has a diameter of 5/16”. The head is available in either 100 grain or 125 grain weight.

Zwickey No Mercy Broadhead
All of the benefits and great performance that has been heaped on the single bevel versions of this broadhead also applies to the double bevel version. They are made from high-carbon steel and they can be sharpened to an extreme level for maximum penetration.
The tip has been given triple thickness and has been heat treated so that it will smash through bone without curling or other damage.
The dimensions of the cutting diameter measures 2-½” long x 1-3/16”. The ferrule is 11/32” and it designed to fit all carbon and aluminum arrows that are made with an industry standard 8-32 thread.
The broadheads are sold in packs of 3 and have been released by the company with an MSRP of $22.50 per pack.
VPA 2-Blade Broadhead
These broadheads are CNC machined in one piece from high carbon steel. Their strength is assured by the heat treatment to 55 Rockwell that they are given.
The blade has a width that measures 1-⅛” and are available in a number of weights starting with 150 grain, 175 grain, 200 grain and 250 grain.
Added strength comes from the way the ferrule is designed to support the head all the way to the tip. This tip is a double tanto style which will help to prevent it from curling when it hits solid material.
The broadhead is designed to be an effective bone splitter. They come in packs of 3 and are priced with an MSRP of $47.45.
Field Point Flight
The shape and design of these broadheads provide for a simple, streamlined and compact profile. This all leads to the fact that they fly true and straight. One of the comments that are most commonly heard about hunter’s experiences when shooting them is that they fly like field points.
When matched correctly with the fletching it is inevitable that the spin pattern will ensure the type of flight you are looking for and this gives you a far greater chance of a humane kill.
