Norsaq

 

This is a harpoon or spear throwing lever (also known as an atlatl or woomera - see good ol' wikipedia) and, as last resort a kayak rolling paddle.

 

It is tiny, usually no bigger than 400mm (18") long, 100mm (4") at the widest point and less than 20mm (3/4") thick. A norsaq is usually kept alongside your Storm paddle under the front deck ropes of your kayak.
