    I was at my fordge finishing up a sword. Than I noticed a small piece of scrap iron calling out, "why haven't you used me?" So I hammered out a rough slingshot. This is what I got so far. Sanded the forks, but I may reshape them. I may put some bands on it and see how it feels and shoots as is and than see if it could use any reshaping. However, as it is now it feels nice in the hand and in my opinion has a good weight 2Lbs. When don I may just leave the hammer pattern and give it a bit of a mirror polish. Snapshot_20130515.JPG

    and when you run out of ammo, you can beat your opponent to death with it quite handily. :D

    2 pounds... WOW! It's very possible this might be the biggest, baddest slingshot on the planet. :p

    I'm a big fan of metal craft and hand-forged blades. You should definitely continue to explore this realm of hammer-forged slingshots.

    I enjoyed seeing this (I remember your other forged slingshot too). Thanks for sharing again.
