Hey guys,

I was just wondering, what is your chosen knife when making slingshots? Whether its for carving, debarking, or cutting down the fork.

Cheers Luke

I would highly recommend a mora clipper, if it's just for slingshots and carving in general there great, nice sharp steel, inexpensive and can take a beating (just don't hit it with I hammer like me lol)

i use afolding saw for cutting it down, but i usually use a CRKT with a tanto blade for debarking...
it's a lil' big and more suited for military use, but it's my every day carry, so i use it.. it works great for debarking

a coldsteel kudu for rough work, cause it's big, cheap and sharp....and in a pinch I have used it to cut forks..
and a mini stockman for the more delicate stuff.. and both because I always have them in my pocket.

The mora clipper is my favorite wood carving knife too...
That scandi grind is just awesome.

My favoured knife is a Mcusta Basic Folder. The blade is about 7/8 cm. and the steel is very good HRC is about 59/60. The handle is ergo in ebony. Bob
