very scary indeed.

Do you have images of the impact? Can you throw it point first?
Does it survive the throw? Looks like it might break.

Well point first is kinda a perspective
They fly point first but are place in pouch with the
Point facing rearward
And as for durability I have never had one break
But have lost a few alway a little concerned about
Them being a caltrop
Pretty sure the lost ones are buried in the ground
That is the reason for the ju-ju points
Those I alway find lol

When I read caltrop I got a really bad idea. The only problem is that they would probably get caught on the sling while throwing.

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”
