    I thought that is time for me to prepare for the Zombie apocalyse......

    A titanium grip, shaped with hard wood. The tip of the grip ends on a vicious 15cm 3 bladed spyke (titanium too,inspired on sugical needles for stiches in hard skin).
    A thick fork made from natural guava, sealed with Peroba oil and aged with bitumen wax....waterproof.
    Grip adjusted with nylon straps glued together.
    Very light for all this metal!!!

    Zombies....beware!

    is the fork glued onto the rod? if not i'd file a groove for an o-ring for quick exchange.

    Thanks, it looked obvious to me. You could make one for shooting TTF, one for stones, one intuitive, OTT etc.
    And for safety, and so you can load heavy bands, I'd suggest a good strong locking mechanism; maybe involve a tang into the fork/handle.

    Envious of the titanium. My f-u-money slingshot would be a titanium pocket predator. How hard was it to work, or was it already in the shape you needed due to the wonders of prosthetic science?

    Wow, nice result!
    The bitumen aging is a fine idea and a great touch to this beast!
    Just a killer set again! Keep 'em coming! :)

    I got it free... It is a cancer femoral reconstruction prothesis, half of a femur, custom made for the patient. This one was never used.....
    The piece cost is about 25.000 dollars, or more. It was covered with calcium hidroxyapathite, the mineral matrix of the bone. I had to sand it all, otherwise it would be like holding a sandpaper made slingshot.

    It is har to work... Not BIG HARD but not easy. To make the spike from the original fluted shape it took some time. I've made the whole piece following the original shape of the titanium, to make it easier (I don't have many metal shaping tools). Here is the making of.... It will be in a series of posts since I can't upload multiple images on the Iphone.
