If you’ve ever wanted to hurl spears to bring down a woolly mammoth, then these two kits from Thunderbird Atlatl are the way to go. The Nanticoke and Kanakadea kits are both high quality and simple to build, so with a little time and effort you can make a very nice-looking atlatl suitable for serious dart flinging.
The kits include everything you’ll need except for wood glue, plus a brief history of the atlatl and instructions for casting darts. The kits can be purchased with three or seven darts, or none at all for those adventurous enough to make and experiment with different dart lengths and sizes. Additional darts of various styles are available from Thunderbird.
