How to Make a DIY Survival Spear For Beginners
I’ve seen several articles on how to make these 4 pronged survival spears, but this one by the folks at Survival Life is one of the best. If you’re new to hand making survival tools, this article is for you.
They take you step by step, from picking the type of wood, thickness, length, to lashing the splints into place to keep the 4 prongs apart and finally, fire hardening the spear points.
In addition, they tell you exactly which tools you’ll need and walk you through, with photographs, how to use them to create each stage of your survival spear.
One of the tools you’ll need that they mention is “cordage”. They don’t go into detail as what cordage to use, but in the photos it’s clear they are using some type of “paracord”. If you’re unfamiliar with what that is, read my article here “Paracord, Firecord, Prepcord, and Now Titancord!”
And if you’re looking for a good knife recommendation for your project, here’s my article on the Mora Companion with a video review. For under $15 this knife is a real bargain! If you’re on a tight budget but still want to get started in the survival craft, this knife is for you!
