Primitive Spear





Introduction: Primitive Spear

This is a double sided spear tutorial which could save your life. It can be used to fish, hunt, and protect.

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

Now you want to wrap the cord around the stick all around to get it to stay and then tie it

Step 6: Sharpening

Now you want to just sharpen both the ends until there as desired

Step 7: Finished

Now go and hunt or spear fish

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.

Any knife would work cliff

I like it a lot. What kind of knife did you use?

With such a big knife, I think you'll be fine without a spear!!! :)

Good instr. Thanks!
