Lethal Lithics & The Last Airbender

My uncle Barry Howe has a side business as a flintknapper (manufacturer of stone tools) called Lethal Lithics.

As cool of a side business as that is, even cooler is the fact that he is personally producing the weaponry from the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan movie The Last Airbender.

From Barry:

After sending them some weapons to hold in their hands, they pretty much went nuts, and contracted me to design and create a variety of weapons for M Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender.” It’s a live-action version of a hugely popular anime show on Nickelodeon (which I never watched). It will be a trilogy, so hopefully they will need more weapons! It’s being called “the next Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.”


It was kind of exciting working with the production crew. Of course, Mr Shyamalan “loves my work.” One weapon, an antler harpoon, turned out so well that they altered the script so that a “good guy” would carry it.
