In this tutorial I show how to make a 4-prong fish spearhead. This is a fishing spearhead that has fire-hardened points and barbs carved into each prong.

This design utilizes one shaft split 3/4 of the way down the middle 4 ways. Cordage is whipped into place to stop the shaft from splitting. Then smaller shims are inserted and lashed into place to keep the prongs separated.
