A boomerang is a throwing weapon, notably used by Digger Harkness. His variety was designed and supplied by Klaus Markos. It is a steel-made curved blade, sharpened on both sides and perforated by four prolongated holes. A boomerang, as thrown, spins about an axis that is perpendicular to its flight direction and is designed to return to the thrower.
