    Ok its not a slingshot, but i thought i would share it with you guys anyway <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>Made from a rusty old file and and old coffee table and 4 days of sanding and filing and polishing...<br><br><br><img src="http://i49.tinypic.com/zujz7p.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i48.tinypic.com/hvnn0k.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i48.tinypic.com/11t1vk2.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i49.tinypic.com/352kzrk.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    That is a very good looking knife. Nice variation of a tanto style blade you came up with. It's hard to beat the old style files for a blade steel. I believe some of the newer ones are only tempered on the teeth though. The same thing goes for some types of saw blades. I've always wanted to get more into knife making, but never had the equipment really. Good job.<br><br>Not that it makes a difference to me, but I can see some people suggesting that you move this to the "off topic" section. Maybe not though.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>you should give it a go - most of the work is filing and sanding , if you got an angle grinder and a shed load of files / wet and dry , you can make one <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> i anneal the metal first anyway otherwise its too hard to work ( blunted 3 drill bits trying to drill a hole after tempering the blade lol ) <br><br>I don't know how to move this post to another section so if i mod feels it belongs in another section - could you please move it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"><br><br></span><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>thanks , alot of time spent sanding and polishing to get it there , definately worth the time spent..<br><br><br>have been looking into some exotic wood and damascus steel for a future knife build.. just goto get the funds together and practice a bit more. By the way - i think someone should build a slingshot out of damascus steel its daaaamn nice looking metal !! <br></span>

    i do not really have a clue about knifemaking...but i think you use a file because it is hardened steel? so using an angle grinder...i mean...doens´t it heat up the file too much?<br><br>and how do you sand or file...well...a file? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> do you own a hardmetalfile?<br><br>no matter what, the result is awesome! the metal looks like its chrome...really really nice job!

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>yup , a regular wood/metal working file <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> , an angle grinder will remove the teeth quite easily but you can heat it up to red hot first and let it cool slowly to 'anneal' the metal and make it easier to work, after that is done it will shape and sand quite easily <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> then when you've got the shape and finish all done - you re-temper it and harden it and polish it to a fine shine <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"></span>
