This little red oak pocket poacher has a pronounced twist in it that plays right into my hand. Very comfortable to shot.



I've got 0.030 latex bands on it -- tapered from 1" to 3/4" and they are pretty powerful, but the way this fork lays into my hand, I can get a really lot of leverage. I could easily shoot doubles with this little fork if I wanted to.

Sensitive content, not recommended for those under 18 Show Content


It's finished with 2 coats of raw linseed oil and 3 or 4 coats of Danish oil and buffed with my dremel.

Small enough to be pocketable, yet capable of handling any amount of flatband power. What d'ya think?

You askin' me, what I think, about a pocketable shooter? The first slingshot I ever saw was hanging out of a pocket! It seems the natural way of things...

Nice fork, DH. Archimedes was a fan of leverage too.

Pop, if only you were a right-hand holder, I have made three of these nice little poachers lately that you'd love. But they are all customized to right hand. We will get a trade going yet, old boy.

Thanks everybody for the nice comments. It's nice to get your feedback.
