    I've been working on this for a while. thinking about a slingblade that keeps the tip of the blade forwards. The design came on a "pirate pistol" look. (no jokes about my eye, plz!)
    I had seen some pistol knives on the internet and videogames.

    I named it on a parody to the PFS and becuse of my friend TokSik, that loves acronyms. Pickle dagger shooter.....looks more like a barbecue knife for me....:eek:

    Materials are plywood, cedar scales and a big knife that I didn't like the handle...plastic chinese stuff. Marine varnish finish, 4 layers. Blade glued with epoxy and locked in position with 4mm titanium bolts.
    I'm still not sure if I will add some bitumen wax to age it, since I don't like the plywood look very much....opinions?(I know yours, Will:))

    Man, this thing does look great! Can you imagine pulling that thing out? "Thats not a slingknife mate, this is a slingknife!"
    Great work BV, and I agree, it does look like a great bbq tool! All you need to do is attach a bottle opener and you have a great all-in-one tool and entertainment device:D

    This looks really cool, really really cool! It's the coolest slingblade I have ever laid my eyes on, at least! I love that handle shape, just fantastic :D

    Does it give you a lot of strain on the wrist?

    Man, My tests were fine, no strain at all. This one I intend to use as a single banded ss, and I've made some calculations about the shape of the handle and how it affects the slingshot. At this position, most of the strain is in the pinky finger and his neighboor (I really don't know the names of the fingers, in medicine thay are called by numbers...thumb is 1 or first).
    I have quite a strong hand too, so maybe it can be different for other people. (brazilian jiu-jitsu gives amazing hand grip strength):D:D

    I'm glad that you liked!!!

    I have made a sling like that (without the blade!) It wanted to roll back in my grip when I would shoot it. So I added a "trigger" for a finger grip to hold it down. I gave it to a friend and he likes it well enough. It did not look that good though. Very Piratey

    It's more of a bowie :), I love it. though It'd feel a little too unnatural. Kind of like Ulu knives. They can be used but they just don't feel right. Awesome nonetheless.

    Jack'd bandslap himself and fall off of a ship and lose it. Though we've seen him pick up all of his gear when it was thrown overboard, he'd probably leave the sling pistol out of laziness.
