Step 1: Material

All you need is a knife and cord (shoelace paracord ....) and some wilderness

Step 2: Finding a Tree

You want a straight tree that fits comfortably in your hands. It can be small or big as you want. Then cut it to the length of your spear

Step 3: Splitting

You want to stick your knife right on the top of your tree stick thing. And then hit it with a rock to split it down the middle until you reach the length in the picture

Step 4: Fixing the Blades in the Place

Find a small stick and cut it into a stick slightly bigger than your spear and stick it down the split to keep the blades separate

Step 5: Getting It Stronger

The knife isn't as big as it looks my hands are just freakishly small

For an even more efficient point could you smash two rocks togather or find a sharp rock to use as a spearhead, then tie that down with the spacer(woodenstick) using shoelace?

nice project but please don't smash your knife with a rock like that. just use another piece of wood.
