This atlatl dart was made for display, showing the use of materials seen in the archaeological record. The dart features a removeable foreshaft, and when inserted the full length of the dart measures 72 inches long. The point is a MODERN knapped 3 inch long stemmed Archaic style projectile point made in Horse Creek Chert. It is set into the shaft with pine pitch/charcoal mastic, and then wrapped with real deer sinew and hide glue. The main shaft is river cane, which has been seasoned and heat straightened. The fletching is genuine wild turkey feathers, that are also lashed with sinew and hide glue. Although made for display, this piece is certainly still considered a dangerous weapon, and the buyer is responsible for the safe use of this product, capable of injury or death.
