Here is an utterly nasty throwing weapon that takes little time to make but is effective for novices. I call it the 'Porcupine'.
Take a piece of wood at least 12-24 inches in length, ideally circular or square along its width, tapering off at the end where you grip this beast so
the 'business' end is significantly heavier- take into account the weight of the nails you will be driving through the bigger end of the stick. Make
sure the nails are big enough to enter one side, and out the other with at least 2-3 inches of nail jutting out. This is a throwing weapon, not a
Ideally, drill prepared holes with a slightly smaller drill bit compared to the nail size you will be nailing in later so it stays firm while at the
same time preventing the wood from shattering if you were to hammer the nails in forcibly. In and out, all sides. For example: 2-3 nails X 4 sides,
disorganized. Try and make it cover all quadrants. Hammer some through the top, and cut off the head of the hammer with wire-cutter- equipped pilers,
so the end is sharp.
The idea is to let the heavier end of the stick take the lead when it travels, so the business end hits its target.
There ya go. Be careful, ok?
