Step 1: Materials

You need a straight stick, a weight (rock), a long piece of string or duct tape, a glue gun if you are bad with knots, and you can add a kitchen knife to it.

Step 2: Adding the weight

To add the weight, place the rock near the tip of the stick, (I would say place the weight 5-6 inches away from the tip of the stick) rap some duct tape around the rock, (enough to stick the rock there for good) or rap some string around the rock a few times tie it and glue gun the areas where you placed the string both of the ways should make the weight hold it's place very well ( the pic may be a bit blurry)

Step 3: Adding the sharp tip

This step is really easy just stick a knife on the end of the stick near rock with duct tape. Or sharpen the end.(for pics look at pic for intro and pic for step 1)

Step 4: Throwing the javelin

hold javelin in your fist over your head throw like you would throw a really heavy dart.

WARNING:Do not throw at anyone or any animal (unless in self defence, then by all means, throw away)

I hope you like it. It's my first instructable.

i think the only thing you CAN put is a bag of flour or part of a pillow w/out the stick sharpened.

I made one of these only I replaced the knife with a sharp rock, glued it on with some pine resin, tied it with mock animal tendon.

now, im all for sharp objects flying through the air but taping a knife to a stick and throwing it around doesnt strike me as all that "safe" w/e my biggest concern however is that it will lose its "fun" when you impale yourself or a nieghbors dog...or your nieghbor for that matter....

nice design. maybe to make it more aerodynamic and balanced you could split the stick at the end and remove the blade from the knife then fix it in the split end of your killing stick.

well spears are always good so i like this
Danny Dieffsta7 years ago
normal javeling dont need such a heavy weight and thats what makes them fly well so i would just wrap some batteries round the javelin with string and duct tape becuase this will make it more areodynamic than the rockand also dont put too much weight on there
