What’s can one do with a stick? Find out by watching the Science Channel production of Sci-Trek – Neanderthals airing Monday, April 5, at 9 p.m.
You can watch the entire show but pay close attention to the digging sticks and spears used by the Neanderthals – they were produced in the Thunderbird Atlatl shop!
About a year or so ago we were called and asked if we could help provide spears and digging sticks for a television production on Neanderthals and thus the starring role of Thunderbird Atlatl props! Providing services for custom order requests from production companies, museums and individuals is one the services we enjoy providing at our shop.
We make all sorts of custom atlatls and darts, special spears, harpoons, knapped points and more. Many of the requests involve historical research-another part of this job we enjoy. If you are looking for a specialty item, before to give us a call at 800-836-4520 and we’ll be happy to work with you.
Don’t forget to check out those spears in the Neanderthal production! If you don’t catch it Monday night, it is repeated a couple of times more on April 6.
