About Blow Darts
History of Blow Darts & Guns
Blowing darts is an ancient skill that has been around since early tribes walked this earth. They were a popular weapon used in those days because they were easy to hand craft compared to other options. They also can be made from a variety of different materials you can find in mother nature. Original darts were typically made out of wood with a widdled tip to sharpen it. Sometimes hunters took the time to fashion an arrowhead at the tip made of sharpened rock. Today, darts are made out of metal materials that make them sturdy and extremely sharp.
The original blowguns were typically made of bamboo or wood. Hunters would saw a large diameter stick in half, hollow out a groove in both sides and then wrap it back together using twine or other tencel material.
