The club was definitely a very simple but very effective weapon.† Do you know what type of wood it is?

The combination of stone age club and space age visor is quite striking.

That's a real proper Flintstones one Cheesy Really cool! Somewhat related, I've been trying to put together a bow drill set and a few other "primitive" fire starting techniques. I've got quite the fire kit now Cheesy

Thatís a nice lookin shillelagh there. Itís on my bucket list to make a traditional shillelagh... not out of blackthorn but from oak. The challenge is that you need an oak sapling thatís just the right size and the root ball becomes the knob... itís hard to find an oak tree Iím willing to kill just for a walking stick. One of the reasons blackthorn was used was because all the oaks were cut down  Cry

    The club was probably the first weapon ever used by man.  And it still works just fine today.
