A pheon is a steel arrow-head, used by bow hunters; its blades’ inner edges are engrailed, the better to penetrate the quarry. In actual use, the central shank is attached to a feathered shaft; in armory, the shaft is not shown. As an heraldic charge, the pheon dates from c.1295, in the arms of Egerton [ANA2 416]; but it is more famous as the arms of Sydney, Earl of Leicester, d.1586 [Wagner 70].
An artistic variant of the pheon is the “broad-arrow”, or “broadhead”, with straight inner edges; it was a English Royal badge c.1330 [H. Stanford London, “Official Badges”, Coat of Arms, IV(27), July 56, p.93]. In all other respects it is identical to the pheon. (Indeed, there was considerable confusion between them in period armory; thus they are considered negligibly different in Society armory.)
The pheon and broad-arrow have the point to chief by Continental default, and point to base by English default; the Society follows the English usage.
