You know, spiky metal junk you spread on roads to stop tired vehicles, maybe even zombies seeing as they would probably be to dumb to avoid them.

As mentioned, the shape is inaccurate and I think the edges should be sharper, but it is still recognizable as caltrops on first glance, the two extra fits rather well with the concept in my opinion, and it is good enough for approval.

    Cool idea, but the shape is just wierd i would just stick with the one "caltrop" in from instead of having 2 in the back. I also would probably zoom in on the caltrop a bit. Lastly, make the 3 ends of the caltrop more sharper looking they seem dull.

    Would you kindly give something like 20 min to your icon?
    Suggestions:
    1. Shape is off (Try to represent it correctly please).
    2. Seems to be pretty poor designed icon, i mean there should be some creativity in angle choosing, an object representation, etc. It will find much more use if having an appearance close to "throw" skill styles (with trails, big object representation, etc.).
    Like this: Kardel-Sharpeye-skill-0.png

    So, try and figure out something on this please and apply changes.
