Chimney-Sweep Arrow

Have Arrow Will TravelOne of the most outlandish arrows to ever make an appearance, the Chimney-Sweep Arrow was created by Speedy and used one time. In the story “Have Arrow, Will Travel” Speedy was taking on extra work to raise money when Oliver refused to buy a boat for him. (I’m not kidding.) He created the Chimney-Sweep Arrow to clean the soot out of a factory owner’s chimneys. (I’m still not kidding.)

This is arguably a utility arrow as well, but it’s too seldom used to be counted. The story also saw the first appearance of the Buzz Saw Arrow, a slightly more useful utility arrow.

We don’t know how much money he earned, but by the end of the story, he does make enough money to buy a boat doing these archery-related odd jobs. He probably could have made even more by patenting this absurdly effective device.
