Broken Darts

I have a broken brass dart, with a broken stem inside of it. Someone was playing with them and i left for an hour or two, came back and it was broken, no idea how. I have tried many options to get it out, however none seem to be working, hence why i have decided to come here for help. Screw in removers wont work because it is broken literally right at the top of the head of the dart, but not high up enough for me to unscrew it any ideas?

Get whoever was playing with them to buy you a new set of darts.

Im probably going to make them, but these are weighted darts that i got from my parents a long time ago, and i kinda dont want to have to throw them away

What exactly do you mean by 'stem' and what is the stem made of? Is it the sharp tip at the front end or the thing that the flights are attached to at the back end? I'm assuming the brass part is the weighted part that you hold when you're throwing it?

I forget how I did it once. I either scraped it out with a knife or burned it out.

EDIT: Or maybe it was a combination of both.

Depends upon what it's made of, if it's some sort of plastic, either of those will work but if it's steel the brass will melt before the steel will and drilling it out will be difficult.

If it's steel, the best way to remove it will be to carefully file down (using a swiss file) the brass around it just enough to be able to grip it with pliars or mole grips, or even a vice, then unscrew it, but unfortunately it means losing some of the weight of the dart, although it may not be too noticable if you only remove a tiny bit.
