This is a useful weapon if you are ever in a survival situation. You can keep it on your belt while gathering food (because the gatherer always beats the hunter) and throw it if you see something. It is made with minimal tools and materials. Its purpose is to stun and not to kill. If it punctures your target it's a bonus.
