Introduction: Easy Quick Fun Javelin

A javelin that works and is easy to make. Like I said in the title.

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 used a blow gun tube a golf ball, a foam arrowhead, tons of tape and four pens

nice ible its really cool and well written :)

can so0mebo0dy tell my what can i put in end of the stick that could be "a little bit more safe" please i need to make one of these the next saturday but without the knife x)

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.

this could be improved on alot no offence

I'm thinking atlatl (Search the dictionary/encyclopedia/internet). Anyone have any ideas on how to make one?

this looks like somthin that could kill somthing or someONE so i would put "IM NOT LYABLE" all over this one -_-

pretty sweet i love making weapons, im gonna make this one...for sure!
