My favorite natural slingshot and favorite knife tend to compete with one another when we are afield. The knife is jealous of the slingshots reach and the slingshot gets jealous of the knifes utility. Finally, I had enough of the bickering and gave them both a bottle of wine, some candles, and a dark room and here is what came out the other side:













Now my original knife and slingshot are jealous and they are bickering. Just can't please them all!!

The blade is made by Helle of Norway and is held within the fork with several neo magnets. The kangaroo leather thong keeps it all tight when shooting. The core of the slingshot is made from three layers of linen and canvas micarta, with the faces made from Osage Orange. The bolsters are G10 and vulcanized fiber. The entire piece is finished with an oil/wax combo.

I love this slingshot and don't care if the parents feel lonely and jealous!

Now we have a problem, I also love this slingshot ... so we both love the same, but it is your baby ... :(

Seriously now, this is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, a perfect symbiosis between a Slingshot and a knife, but no wonder, who else but NM can build such a beautiful slingshot :)

Great work!
Is it a Slingknife or a Knivesling?

Joe
perhaps it is a 'slingblade'
Does it have a locking system? So that it does not split while you are shooting?
Rare earth magnets are embedded within the fork and the thong holds it all tight while shooting.
The craftmanship is amazing...how did you get a cut in the holster for the knife?
Magic!!

No really, I built it around the blade starting from within.
