Genuine Bushman set, consists of bow, quiver, arrows, friction fire set, spear and digging stick, they're can't be many of these amongst the forum membership - aquired personally whilst on ventures in the central Kalahari desert of Botswana, Southern Africa, several years ago.
The set is in pristine condition.
Hunting sets are used by the bushmen by placing poison (not included) on the shaft of the arrow head, the hunter can kill any animal upto the size of a giraffe.
The spear is made from branches of the raison bush and treated with animal brain and marrow.
The bow is made from a flexible shaft of the Grewia bush and treated as above. The bindings are made from sinew. The bow string is made from long strips of sinew from the back muscles of an antelope.
Two kinds of arrow, the reed arrow can have either an iron arrow head and used for game or the bone version used for birds.
The Bag itself is made from Duiker Skin
The Quiver is made from the root bark of the Acacia tree
The digging stick is hardened by heating with fire and used for digging roots, poison beetles, water, etc
The fire set is also from the Acacia
