A SlingSword Is A Sword/Slingshot Hybrid For Fighting Zombies

By Lily Newman on at

Joerg Sprave is expanding his horizons and moving The Slingshot Channel into a new era, hiring blacksmith James Helm to help him make a small sword. Really, this demo is a relaxing break for all of us -- just some good old-fashioned coconut decapitation to test the blade. Refreshing! Oh, and the hilt of the sword also has a built-in slingshot. Baby steps.

James Helm is "proud to be a Neo-Tribal Metalsmith scavenging the wreckage of civilization." He leaves the marks from hammering out his swords for aesthetic affect, but Joerg is quick to point out that the blades are sharp enough to "shave the hairs of any of your body parts." Useful?
