Introduction: Throwing Pipe
The throwing pipe is like a throwing knife only it is made out of pipe. Here's how to make one.
Step 1: Supplies
You will need: A pipe at least 3 inches long A hacksaw A file Optional: A weight and hotglue A vice A saw guide
Step 2: Cutting
Measure the pipe in your hand and see what feels like a good length. The cut the pipe there. You can add a little design to this part. This will not be the point of the pipe.
Step 3: Filing
File the edges so they are not so sharp.
Step 4: More Cutting
Now it is time to cut the tip. Cut the tip at a 45 degree angle or less.
Step 5: More Filing
File the tip to be as sharp as possible.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
You can file the handle or add a wrap. I added weight to the front of the pipe. I took three of the biggest fishing weights I could find and hotglued them inside the tip of the pipe. Then I spray painted the tip red.
