Spear Fishing Points

Published by at 10:12 pm under Animal Materials

A project I started very long ago (must have been a year) is finally finished. This will probably be one of the key kit items in the mountains so it just had to be finished. This type of point system is more work to make than the leister spear, but it’s more versatile in regards to sizes. It does however have an additional disadvantage, it will dull on rocks since the points are not protected by any protruding sticks. So this one is for soft ground only.

Hafting will be done down on location. Posts on that will be up in November more than likely. I appologise for the bad photo, poor lighting.

    Use lithium batteries. I have found that they last the longest in my camera. A spare stick for the camera might not be a bad idea either. Second on the insperation.
