This one of a kind, unique custom atlatl was part of the "Adopt A Cove" clean up project, when our business sponsored a litter clean up of the Occoquan Reservoir in northern Virginia. Plastic bottles were picked up for recycling, while choice driftwood pieces were collected for art projects. A solid piece of Oak was found to be perfect for a hybrid of Eskimo and other American atlatl design elements. The handle was shaped from a tracing of a Nunivak Eskimo example in Smithsonian Museum collections, and the antler tip spur is a modern design from our sport models today(for longer more flexible darts). The driftwood was epoxy resin stabilized for functional strength, and measures 20.5 inches, making it strong and durable, and a better fit to modern darts. Ironically, this piece made in driftwood is actually more accurate to Eskimo/Inuit throwers, often made in soft driftwood around Nunivak land.
