Sounds like I could make it in 5 minutes - useful.
Cool beans! I'll have to research that before I drink that post-apocalyptic water, though. Thanks for the fast response! - NathantheGray
LOL sorry, I meant to put: " WOOD removes 99.9% of bateria in water. My bad! - NathantheGray
When the zombie apocalypses comes I know what to make. :D - CooWez
Great bow, love the simplicity and effectiveness. Also, as a side question, you said "water removes 99.9% of bacteria in water". Where did that statistic come from? Seems interesting! Nice 'ible!!! :) - NathantheGray
I don't remember, but apparently the wood acts like lots of really thin straws where the bacteria (but not viruses, because viruses are smaller) can't fit through. Water, which is smaller than bacteria, can go through the "straws".
You can break arrows really easily, though. I broke one by shooting it against a rock and another on a concrete wall. I sharpened them again and now they're almost good as new!
Thanks! Turns out someone actually liked all the warnings :D
Great instructable! I appreciate you adding in the safety warnings. :)
