Intro: Apache Throwing Star
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.
Step 1: Items
You will need paracord or you could use yucca rope (instructable coming soon), two sticks about equal size, and a knife
Step 2: Trim Sticks
Trim the sticks to an equal size
Step 3: Sharpen the Sticks
Step 4: Notch the Sticks
Make notches in the middle of the sticks, about halfway through. Fit the sticks together to make sure they fit
Step 5: Tie Together
lash the two sticks together and tie it off. If you want to, you can secure it together with pine pitch.
