Nice video man and thanks again for the credit!

one correction : the length of the dart is 2 palms+1 span which is 40cm (~15 3/4 in)

The English translation said 2 cubits but then corrects it to 2 palms at the bottom of the page.

2 palms metal tip + 1 span wooden shaft

the last dart I throw in my video is as good reconstruction as I could make it with the tools I had.

Does anyone have any idea abt the gypsy war dart? It apparently used the same release system as a swiss arrow or arrow whip, but used in a sling fashion. A 2ft length of wood which had a bulbous head an then tapered down to a tail tip. The tip was then cut cross ways for fetching, to launch....a knot was tied just behind the head in the fashion of a swiss arrow. I was told abt it by a old guy from his youth days, but his recall is abit off. Thanks
