Have you heard of a dart/arrow throwing pipe set? The pipe connects and disconnects at various places allowing different throwing angles and dart sizes. I’m looking at a one inch pipe machined in the middle so it can be two pipes or one and machined at 1-2 feet so there is a smaller section for shorter darts. It can double as a bow staff or two bars for defense.

There is no such weapon variation that I am aware of. There is however an adjustable dart size Atlatl in which the dart itself can be made of pipe sections. This arrangement would give you a bow staff version but the dart would act as the bow staff and the thrower could also be used as a weapon thus giving you the "two bars" for defense. This type of Atlatl with modified length changes the angle and allows different size darts to be used. This is not a commercially available arrangement but can easily be made by modifying the instructions to use metal versus other materials from instructions such as these:

Thank You, that’s what I thought. I had thought of a sword/atlatle combination but the arrows fall off the side if not held just right. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
