The Australian YouTuber Primitive Technology has put The Hunger Games‘ Katniss Everdeen to shame by creating a bow and arrow using only primitive tools and materials he had previously made.


The tools he used to create it were: a celt stone hatchet, a stone chisel, various stone blades and fire sticks,


The bow is 1.25 m (55 inches) long and shoots 60 cm (2 feet) long arrows. The stave was made from a tree that was cut with a stone axe and split in half with a stone chisel. The string was made from the bark of a fibrous tree.

mar142The arrows were made of the same wood as the bow. The fletches were made from bush turkey feathers he picked up from the ground. The tip of the arrow was fire hardened and sharpened to a point. The fletching was trimmed using a hot coal.
Each arrow took about an hour to make.

He also mad a  quiver out of bark to hold the arrows.
