This image shows how the foreshaft is separable from our Authentic Atlatl Dart. The atlatl dart is socketed to accept the foreshaft.
The foreshaft on an atlatl dart is an innovation unique to the Americas. It allowed the ancient hunter to change a broken stone point as easily as a modern hunter chambers a new bullet. Each Authentic Dart comes with one foreshaft with a finely chipped stone point, hafted in pine pitch, and bound with deer sinew.
