    <br><br>When I gave Lynn Thompson (founder and owner of Cold Steel) his aluminum Moorhammer, he immediately said "Can't you add a spike to the handle?".<br><br>I said sure, but you loose some of the compactness. We discussed the issue no more. <br><br>But then I thought about the idea. It has been a while since I made my last welded steel frame, so I decided to give it a shot. <br><br>This three spiked hand weapon has a Hammerhead handle, simply because it is the best. I had to modify it a bit to accomodate the 12 mm (1/2") stainless steel rod, but it still is the real deal. <br><br>This frame required a different band attachment, Over The Top does not work for obvious reasons <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>I chose a through the fork design, slightly angled so the bands do not touch the main fork arms.<br><br>It is a fearsome hand weapon, really. And it shoots really well!

    Have you discussed doing a cold steel line of slingshots with Lynn? I know they do a lot of casting with reinforced plastics. The shillelagh he gave you that you smashed a coconut with is an example. <br><br>I would love to see some cold steel produced slingshots.
