    After reading a story from the middel ages out of Jörg´s book "Joerg Sprave Kurzgeschichten", i was inspired to make this.<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=24&u=17793509" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i49.servimg.com/u/f49/17/79/35/09/15112010.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=25&u=17793509" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i49.servimg.com/u/f49/17/79/35/09/15112011.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>It should show an old thing from the middel ages with a shape like a ss. <br>And i will call it with the short name " The thing from the middel ages,that came back for showing here" <br><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

  9. So very awesome, the handle reminds me of an armor piercing point on an old glaive or the stabbing point on a halberd. Great for punching through stuff.

    I think the end of the handle looks like a "Fitscheneisen" <br><br>I have no translation for this word.<br><br>Here a picture<br><br><a href="http://community.fachwerk.de/upload/orginal/I119_1871_200481913529.jpg" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://community.fachwerk.de/upload/orginal/I119_1871_200481913529.jpg</a><br><br>If you add a L and wrote Flitscheneisen this means slingshotiron, funny.<br>Zwillie
     
  11. That is a mean looking chissle. (Chizle, chizzle? No idea how to actually spell that word)

    Hi,<br>I haven`t had the time this week to check the cost of a massproduction.<br>The reason why I asked if anyone is interested is that I would get about 150-200 preformed slingshot-blanks.<br>If I have a price we will see.<br>Zwillie

    <span class="postbody"><br>Thanx.<br>The shape was made with a saw. The handle with a grinder (Flex) to decrease time. Only the surface on the fork was made with a hammer.</span>
