Matt Graham is an internationally renowned survival adventurer and primitive living skills teacher, as well as the co-host of Dual Survival on the Discovery Channel.

Inspired by an ancient pattern, named after a primal hunter which glides over the desert sands at tremendous speeds, and designed by legendary bush crafter Matt Graham, the Sidewinder Scout is a compact, versatile and efficient small game hunting tool.  It features an ergonomic balance which enhances short ranged accuracy and stability, as well as an airfoil which is designed for stealth and 360 degree lethality.  The Scout is perfect for applications where smaller individual targets are being engaged, excess range is not desired, and silence is important.  Our easiest to learn and most accessible throwstick, the Sidewinder Scout is unique and beautiful to watch in flight or take on your next trek into the great outdoors.

Description

We have been extremely honored to work with Matt Graham in bringing this exciting design into our lineup.  Matt is a skilled primitive hunter who has decades of experience making and hunting with bow, atlatl and throwsticks.  The Sidewinder Scout is based in an ancient South Western steam bent design, which boasts extreme stability and practicality in a survival situation.  Archaeologists speculate that not only was this primitive multi-tool originally used for hunting but also as a defensive hook for deflecting atlatl darts.  Similar sticks appear to have been used in ancient Egypt as well.  Our modern polycarbonate version features these same qualities and more.  Like the snake from which it derives its name, the Sidewinder Scout swiftly targets small game and delivers a powerful strike, yet it's accessible to the whole family, and is compact and easy to use.  Because the center of balance runs through the hand and the center of mass is closer to the grip, the very instinctive extended grip is the preferred technique for this stick and, the throwing technique is thus easier to learn and more precise for targeting.  The Sidewinder Scout is designed for stealthy hunting at short ranges out to about 50 meters and has a maximum range of about 80 meters average.
