Forged Slingshot (22FL)

Each student will combine using the power hammer as well as hand forging techniques to create a hand forged sling shot from a railroad spike, and attach the bands to them. I also provide small canvas ammo pouches with extra ammo for them to take home. This class is a great intro to forging, and adds a bit of nostalgia, from most of our youth.

This class is taught by Andrew Takach. On the popular TV show, Forged in Fire (season 4, episode 13), Andrew competed and ultimately won with his Shamshir sword. Several photos of his work have been published in books and magazines, including Knives Annual, Knife World, and Blade magazine.
