    Because my other slingshoot´s are a little to big for a pocket, i decided to make this .<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=19&u=17793509" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/17/79/35/09/22102012.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=20&u=17793509" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/17/79/35/09/22102013.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>The shape in the handle should be a piktogram of a person who shoot´s with a slingshoot.<br>I hope you like it.

    If so, i will try. I use <a href="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_pNB5K1k_gY/UHa3UpRmVUI/AAAAAAAAAoc/dZAUdrmZZ_s/s720/aki1.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">THIS</a> saw to cut my boards. It is made to cut wood, not alu. I got a metal handsaw but the blade is larger. Anyway, if you say it is not harder to work with, i will try some day. I always thought it was as difficut to cut than any metal.
