    1/4" chisel ground down to about an inch or so with a curved tip to dig under and lever, antler grip.
    I saw a bloke with a huge Bowie knife that slipped as he was pushing in hard. His hand came up in a big arc and he nearly lobotomised himself... mind to be fair, one would have hardly been able to tell the difference

    I've found one tool that is perfect for extracting arrows from wood - the Bahco SB-2449 Wrecking Knife - https://www.transtools.co.uk/hand-to...ed-blade-100mm

    It's a cross between a chisel and a knife.

    I use a rubber mallet to hammer it into the wood with the straight (not sharp) edge parallel to the arrow but about 2mm away. Then I do the same on the other side of the arrow. That leave the arrow with two thin strips of wood either side. Some side-to-side waggling is enough to break those thin strips and loosen the arrow.

    I would support screwdriver over knife too (and I love knives) - i use a very lightly ground Homebase own brand wide blade jobbie for club days, has a textured high grip handle and cost less than a fiver.

    When someone has been lobotomised, with no apparent effects, if you look at their shoes, one will be holding on by its sock.

    I'd have to go with both. Sometimes you need the knife to cutaway / whittle to the point where you can get the screwdriver to be of use. To save carrying a screwdriver round i went for the chisel knife as well.
