    I have this survival comercial knife, industrial blade made by the brazilian TRAMONTINA industry.
    The model is called commander II.
    Very complete, has a compass in the top of the handle, a survival capsule inside, with fisshing acessories, sewing things, grappling hooks, turns into a wire cutter, bottle opener, screwdriver and a paracord. Even a stone for sharpening. No slingshot! I can't live with it!!!! Thisa knife is mine for about 13 years, helped me a lot when I used to go camping in "Paranapiacaba"(being in there is almost as complicated as spelling it....rains 300 days for year, 39 degrees in the day and degrees in the night....and YOU JUST CAN'T MAKE THE WOOD BURN!!! it's wet all the time). It's a mountain in the atlantic forest that surrounds the coast of São Paulo state. Ok......enough of geography!
    With my Ilizarov externa fixator pieces (surgical steel...Do I sound annoying for saying it every post?), I mannaged ti adapt a fork on it!
    It happens that the Ilizarov apparel is like "LEGO", but from a very great steel (it just doesn't rust, even if you keep it wet!).
    I used to make little robots, toy guns and home repairs from it. That's why I'm always using it for slingshots....

    I think I talk to much...:( here it goes!

    I think the same! They suit each other. Tomorrow I'll put some bands.
    My wife's nephew is comming for the weekend and I will try to make a video.
    Thanks!

    Long live the Ilizarov!
    Great work and excellent use of recycled materials! I really like this.
    I feel somewhat of a kinship with orthopedic tools, I've got a plate and 8 screws in my right leg. I tell people I'm metal to the bone! :D

    Great idea!! Love it!
    You can put some ammo in the handle or make a flame thrower out of it,...useful for making fire in Paranapiacaba

    I haven't seen who posted these images for the first time... but when I scrolled down I already knew it was you Brazilviking :)
    No doubt, your style is totally recognizable!

    It's a great idea, have you tested it already? It would be nice if all parts could be placed inside the handle.

    Have a nice day,
    Mark

    Actually, Professor Gavril Abramovich Ilizarov died in 1992.......:(
    But his legacy remains!

    Plate on the leg? Tíbia or fibula? How long since you have this surgery?

    This was a five minutes idea, but it is not my project for a real slingblade!!!
    Something better is comming (or glueing, I should say):)

    My metal pieces are all the same style..... My lovely metal LEGO!
    I haven't tested yet, maybe on the weekend.
    The fork don't fit inside the handle:(
    But I managed to attach it to the scabbard, plus the wrench to make the attachment:)

    Thanks for the comments, guys! It is aways good to have lots of opinions!

    Right fibula, just above the ankle. It has been three years since the surgery.

    Ankle fracture probably....Let me guess: in your x-ray there's a screw passing through the fibula and attaching to tha tibia?:D

    You know, I'm not sure, I would have to reference my xray picture. I do know that they put one screw in at a pretty steep angle, so that may be the case. Either way, its good and strong!
