A simple home-made stitching and cutting weapon made of stone, wood and bone can be made independently under extreme conditions, but for this you need to have at least a little experience in manufacturing it and at least some skills.
A simple home-made stitching and cutting weapon made of stone, wood and bone while surviving in extreme conditions, a knife, a spear, a cattle, an ax, a sling, a fighter.
Homemade stone knife.
Material for a homemade knife made of stone can serve.
Obsidian igneous rock composed of volcanic glass.
Quartz is a widespread, hard, rock-forming mineral. Has many varieties.
Flint is painted in different colors, with smooth transitions between them. Excellent material for making a knife, ax, spearhead, arrowheads.
Slates rocks. Easy to split into individual, thin and sharp plates.
Making a homemade stone knife.
Rinse the selected stone (layered rock) with water. Then determine in it the presence of natural cracks and their general direction. In these directions, the stone will easily split into plates. Hit the stone with another stone so that the impact energy passes along the layer or crack. To process a stone in other directions, that is, it is impossible to cross the cracks and layers.
The breakaway plate must be given the desired shape of the knife blade using another stone. If the size of the plate allows, then make a handle. Handle size to fit palm. Wrap the handle with a cloth, leather strip, rope and the like. If the stone handle did not work, then it must be cut from a tree branch. Butt splice branches. Insert the blade into the cleavage and securely fasten it there by wrapping the handle with wire, rope, strips of cloth, a bandage, a leather belt, a liana.
A spear is a piercing or piercing-chopping, throwing, pole-arm edged weapon. The spear is the same knife, only with a long, even handle. The simplest spear is a straight stick sharpened from the thicker end of a solid wood stick. For hardness, the spearhead must be burned at the stake. A short, strong, sharpened branch may be useful for defense against a predator at close range. For greater efficiency, the spear should be equipped with a tip made of stone, bone, metal.
Rogatina is a Slavic heavy spear for hunting a large beast. Simple stag beetle is a thick, pointed, long stake. Rogatin has no resemblance to a pitchfork, it is called so because in antiquity, the cattle horn served as its tip. Or bastard is a wide bile knife on a long pole. Designed to repel the attack of the attacking beast (bear, round, wild boar). The thickness is the grip of the palm of the hand. The length is about two meters. A cross must be secured below the tip to keep the beast at a safe distance. When attacking the beast, the stag beetle must be quickly rested with a blunt end into the ground, step on it with his foot and point the tip to the side of the animal. When hitting, the cattle must be held with both hands.
Homemade Stone Ax.
The material used is the same as for a stone knife blade: flint, obsidian, etc. An easy way to make an ax is to stone the stone until it is shaped and a sharp blade is formed. Then the finished stone must be attached to a solid wood handle.
Homemade Sling, Harpoon.
Sling – this weapon is a long spear for spearfishing. On the one hand has a tip for hitting fish. On the other rubber or spring traction. Range is limited by harpoon length.
Drach is intended for fishing at depths from the shore or from a boat. The order of fishing: throw the fisherman to the bottom of the reservoir further from the coast, and preferably into a pit. Wait a bit, then jerk the tackle onto you with a sharp jerk on the rope. If the fish has not been hooked repeat. Principle of action: due to a sharp jerk, the drach randomly breaks down from the bottom and hooks the fish on his way with hooks.
