Very nice, what do you use to cut the leather out of curiosity?

I use emt/medic scissors. Theres probably better options out there, but they work well and i dont really have any complaints about them.

Always have a sling on you. You never know when you might find some perfect ammo just lying around the place Cheesy

I've never actually used acorns as ammo before but they work pretty well and are the perfect size for this sling I got from Loki. Really awesome sling by the way. It's beautiful and, despite being one of the smallest slings I have (both in length and pouch size), it works fantastically well and because it's small is perfect as an EDC sling. It's easier to find stones that fit this sling than stones for the larger slings I have. Also wraps up nice and small and fits in one of the small pockets of my jacket.

Agreed, wonder if it throws as good as it looks.

Beautiful work as always. Is this a replica perhaps of the sling you and Teg studied?

Yes. It is a replica. The original is in Switzerland. She is very easy. Shoots very well.

I am still working on improvements. And I want to try other materials.
The original was found as early as 1850. Due to an error in the archive, the original was lost. I found it again.
The material was given flax / linen. That is not confirmed. This statement probably means that it was made from plant fiber. I could already exclude Lindenbast as a material.
