building a mini-tebutje (shark dagger)


Recommended Posts


I was assigned a project on the culture of Micronesia for my AP world history class, so I decided to build a tebutje (shark sword) to show the traditional warfare techniques of the region........ I had a lot of fun with this, and it was a good way to use some of the extra shark teeth I had in my collection! I attached a section of video I used for the project that shows the building and trial of my tebutje,

I hope you have some fun with it too!

* I may have mis-IDed some of the shark's teeth, my history teacher doesn't know much about sharks...so I'm good on that end. if you see a mis-IDed tooth, let me know!

That’s awesome.

I don’t want to get in the way of that!

(It may help getting rid of other hunters at your locations! Fossil hunters are a dangerous and competitive bunch :P )
