Introduction: How to Make a Survival Bow / Whip
This is my first instructable .
It 's about making a Whip which can also be used as a bow.
It's definitely not the most beautiful design, but it's a fun way to recycle things.
Step 1: Materials/tools
The Materials are:
- A metal pipe a bit longer then your arrow where youre arrow fits in smooth
- Old bicycle tube which is not needed anymore
- A pencil cap which fits into the metal pipe
- Hot glue gun
Step 2: Step 1
Cut the valve off the bicycle tube. You can save it for an other project
Step 3: Step 2
Glue the pencil cap into one end of the metal pipe with hotglue
Step 4: Step 3
Cut a small piece long as your finger from the bicycle tube
Step 5: Step 4
Make a knot into the small piece
Step 6: Step 5
Make a knot into the long piece
Step 7: Step 6
Twist the large tube on the metal pipe.
(on the end where you have glued the cap in the pipe)
Step 8: Step 7
Twist on the small piece on the other side. You have created a water proof container inside the pipe where you can store survival tools like fishing line with hooks, fire starter...
Now your whip is finished
Step 9: Step 8
The transformation into a bow is very easy:
You just have to run the tube down the pipe and wrap a couple of times around the pipe, then you have to slip the end under the tube running along the pipe as you can see in the next picture
Step 10: Step 9
Shooting is very easy you just have to take the arrow and hold in the middle of the tube with two fingers and with the other hand take the pipe ;pull ; shot and have fun ;)
