First wireframe slingshot I've made, it's 7mm rod that I've recycled from a guitar stand with the exposed frame bound with leather and a braided leather wrist sling, the grip/handle is antler from our local Rusa deer.
The knife was made from recycled mower Blade and the hatchet was a farriers rasp, I've used a soldering iron to burn the images into the leather messenger bag.
I need to make a matching ammo pouch and waiting on bands from china atm. Anyways it's turned out to be a handy little diy hunting kit.
Not sure what to name the slingshot yet.
Cheers T.H

Well done! Love the braid work. I can work paracord into some neat stuff but when it comes to leather you are on a whole different level, gives me something to strive for :)

I would simply name it "AWESOME "!! My friend that's some kind of craftsmanship you got going on. Gorgeous frame and great blacksmithing and outstanding leather work. A winner all around!!
Thanks mate, Ive had practice making knives and sheaths and things in the past but it's the first slingshot I've made.

Agree with everyone, that is a fantastic kit.....love the sling most of all, but that leather work is amazing in its own right.

Very nice job all the way around

Thanks SLING-N-SHOT.
I'm hanging on the new bands to arrive so I can take it for a spin, it's def got its own mojo going on, I almost feel like John Wayne with that bad boy in my hand haha.
