    A stone age spear [ancient stone spear head] fasten with skin [leather] in a museum in south-africa
    the spear head is original stone age.

    This spear was made by a later day [+_1950s] elephant/ivory poacher!
    [he was apparently caught at the carcass by the police and this spear then confiscated as evidence]


    Though I can not for a moment condone his act of poaching, :mad:
    I must admire his hunting skills and bravery. [or is it stupidity...?? :confused:]

    Just imagine--stalking alone in the African bush AND killing an elephant with only a stone bladed spear!

    Wow!

    Shows you that with the right attitude and determination, any ordinary 'tool' can become a very dangerous and serious object.

    It makes me look with different eyes at my hunting knife when i go hunting! [LOL]

    it would be interesting to know how he used the spear to kill the elephant. brings a new meaning to the fusion of ancient and modern.......

    Old world meet new world and it works.

    What was the size of the spear head?

    It looks like the spear shaft was cut off.

    Great raw leather work...
