Vampire stake: Lethal 2.0

The vampire stake is just about the deadliest "slingshot" projectile I ever made. When fired from my 7 ft. crossbow, it is plain lethal.

But it had two drawbacks.


First, the "hooks" were made from plywood and broke off when they hit something, like the edge of the catch box or so.

Second, the wooden tip went blunt quickly.

So I replaced the wooden hooks with solid 6mm aluminum, and also I drilled the tip out and glued in four inches of 8mm threaded rod, sharpened the tip to a needle point.

Will shoot at things tomorrow!

  1. Oh my gosh! That is crazy! It is scary just to look at it. I am curious at how far you can shoot it. That is a deadly work of art.

  5. I have never forgotten the title of a speech from long ago although the substance was dull and dreary. It was, "The Future belongs to the Efficient'. Sharper point, more penetration. Cool! But does it make for a 'deader vampire'? :) I'm looking forward to tomorrow's video. I'm ALWAYS entertained by your inventiveness and your work. All the best!

  14. Wow! It looks like you can go hunting with this now! Great & scary improvments you've made. Love to add something like this to my "permitive weapons" collection I'm building.

  15. Hot Damn! Now that looks out and out lethal. I can't wait to see some destruction vids lol. On a slightly political note this is one of the reasons I think weapons ban law are ridiculous. A person with some free time and a little know how can make any manner of lethal devices. Hell, last night at work I figured out to make a sling by knotting together 2 bandanas. I was able to throw a rock twice as far and at least 3 times as fast as normal. Slingshots that I have made can put a .50 cal musketball down-range over 150mph. The problem lies in educating the people, not restricting them. Oops, got political my bad, what are you going to do about launching that wicked piece of art?

  24. Ersetz den Kern durch einen Silberstab und das Ding ist gegen Vampire UND Werwölfe gut! ;)
    Replace the rod by one made of silver and it's leather to vampires AND werewolfs! ;)

  25. Now, build about 20 of them and you will be ready for war. :D

  26. This might be one of the coolest slingshot projectiles you have made. Keep up the good work.

  27. This is awesome!

  28. I have always wondered how deep the oak has to go into a vampire in order to achieve a kill. Or does is have to penetrate the heart? I even have a college degree in folklore and mythology, I should know these things. No matter the answer, I am guessing that this projectile will do the trick.

  29. I love the new design! it would work great against all those vampires teenagers love these days!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is awesome! I love the idea that such primitive weapons can be so lethal. Your craftsmanship is also out of this world. I'm impressed! BTW...I saw this report on the Blaze.

  31. Next you will have to inlay the shaft of the stake with silver wire so it will be effective on werewolves too.

  32. Ouch, my undead vampire heart already hurts. Don't want to meet the true death in form of a slingshot whirling vampire killing 'Puempel Assassin'. Better hide in my coffin. ;-P
