Man builds replica boomerang from 'Mad Max' film
'BoomerangsbyVic' has created a replica boomerang used in the late 1981 movie 'Mad Max: Road Warrior'. Check out it's beautiful flight!
All boomerangs made by Vic from 'BoomerangsbyVic' are handcrafted with 10 ply 5 mm finish birch. His hand-crafted returning boomerangs can be purchased online and make great gifts for someone you know that loves boomerangs.
The boomerang is a tool made and used by the Indigenous Australians for hunting. Typically constructed as a flat airfoil and when thrown is designed to spin about an axis that is perpendicular to the direction of its flight
In terms of the use of the weapon in the Mad Max franchise, the Mad Max wikia page writes: “A once widespread tool used by the indigenous Australians for hunting and recreation, the boomerang has proved its worth following the collapse of western civilization. One notable user of the boomerang was the Feral Kid. His returning boomerang was made of chrome and was notably weighty, having the ability to embed itself in the skull of a victim. One such victim was a member of Lord Humungus' Marauders - The Golden Youth - who consequently suffered extensive head trauma and death."
You might not be able to purchase the chrome boomerang like the one Vic made, but you can certainly purchase one of his wooden creations, so feel free to check out his site and share this video with your friends!
