This can be easily obtained via arrows.meta library in PGF 3.0. The shape you requested belong to the Staight Barb family (See PGF 3.0 documentation page 206). As a MWE, see this simple code and the output below it:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{arrows.meta}
\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\draw [-{Straight Barb[left]}] (0,0)--(0.5,0);
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}


The output here is:
