Seen in use during it's development in The Old Kingdom until the end of The New Kingdom, The Throw Stick was used originally as a hunting instrument. Used in a similar fashion as a Boomerang, The Stick was roughly 2 to 3 feet long with a 2 to 3 inch diameter. Made in a slightly curved shaping, The Stick was thrown at Game in an overhand, chopping motion. The aim was to strike the head or otherwise immobilize Prey. It carried onto the battlefield as a close combat striking/clubbing weapon.
