    The other day I was working at my fordge making some Tsubas (handguards for japanese swords), and then I thought, "Ooo, slingshot". So I fodged one using the same method as the tsubas. It's Black steel, with a little leather for grip. P.S. I'm trying to figure out this new site, I hope y'all got the pics, I did send pics. Snapshot_20130426_3.JPG

    Nice slingshot!
    A tip: The lower the forks the lower the stress on your hand. If you next time build a slingshot, you could lower the forks a little bit.
    I am very interested in the tsubas. Could you please post some pictures of them?
