ANNOUNCEMENT: I'm back and ready to take your custom orders. Since a custom slingshot has so many design considerations it is not practical to have a Paypal button. If you are interested in a custom build please email me so we can discuss all the details and pricing options. Please visit the custom slingshots page for more details.
This months featured slingshot has a matching knife! The slingshot is my GS-55 "The Hawk" design constructed with an aluminum core, Ash and red fiber liners and scales that are made of Spalted Tamarind, Black Palm and Red liners, the pins are aluminum with an aluminum wrist strap insert as well. The Knife is also my own design and construction, made from O1 tool steel that is 5/32" thick. The knife handle is the same construction as the slingshot and both have black cord lanyards with a Portuguese sinnet accent.
I am pleased to announce that The Kestrel (GS-50) is available in HDPE along with a bandset of your choice and the all new Versa-Fork attachment method. Even better is that The Kestrel has a little brother The Merlin (GS-51). All the great features of The Kestrel in a smaller frame (2.75" at the pinch). The Kestrel, Merlin and other HDPE slingshots can be purchased here.
"How do you hold that thing?"
This is a common question when people see the Kestrel design. The truth is you hold it like any other "finger supported" style slingshot, it just so happens that there is no handle. Without a handle, you are free to position and shoot with total freedom.
"Perfect Fork" Naturals
Sometimes nature takes care of things for us, offering a slingshot that has the perfect shape and symmetry. In these rare cases I think it is better to just leave them the way they are. Perfect Fork naturals have minimal work done on them, I only sand the fork tips, heel and where little knots or branches were removed.
If you've bought a slingshot from me and are happy with it or just like the way they look, I would love for you to help spread the word by "liking me" on Facebook or visiting me on Google+.
If you come from the slingshot world feel free to ask me questions about archery and bow building, and vice versa, they are both too much fun to not participate in both!
