Javelins, they fall about half way between spears and arrows, they're easy to make, fun to use and have been used for war and hunting all around the world for a long long time. sounds like a handy tool for the firearm challenged come the apocalypse, and just some plain old fun if you have a big empty field up the street to play extreme lawn darts in
Apologies in advance for the picture quality, I've been reduced to my cellphone for taking pictures, and well, it works, but not the best.
Step 1: You will need....
I try and use scavenged material for all my apocalypse projects. not necessary, but i feel it adds to the feel of the project. For this one I've scrounged up:
A socketed spatula and ladle
A couple of old broom sticks
and a bag of craft feathers.
I also like to try and use hand tools, again, because it adds to the feel. I used
a couple files
a box cutter
and some string and a large needle.
