    In the link above is my knife that I carry everyday. I'm looking to incorporate this knife into a slingshot. I especially like the finger grooves and small handle. I plan on buying a second knife and building the slingshot based of the knife since I have no knife making ability. But I want to make the blade secure enough for heavy work. with the limited amount of metal to work with I don't think that it will be secure enough. Can anyone lead me to what is the absolute best thing that I should do? Thank you in advance.

    I'm a little confused. Is the blade not secure enough for the things you use it for? Or not sturdy enough to be used for a SS grip? Did you maybe have a little drawing you could post? It would really help us see what you have in mind.

    The handle size in the picture looks like you will be making a pickle fork, or a mini ss.

    Not really sure what you have in mind.

    The blade is secure ,\but, I want to make the slingshot handle full size. So this means that the blade needs something to go behind it. So I don't think that just wood would be the best handle material.
