Okay, this is what I am calling the Roman Spike. That is not it’s real name, but until I can find out what the real name of this thing actually is, I’ll be using it as a place-holder, okay?
Remember, it’s basically a very short arrow, more like a straight fish hook, stuck in a block of wood and then buried in high grass. Someone steps on it, they are going to be there for awhile. If I had to choose between the classic “arrow” shape or the “variant 1″ that does look like a barb from a fish hook, then I choose “Variant 1″. Better penetration through boots and shoes, and they’re still stuck there.
The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
