Schnelle Engineering Creates a Slingshot Multitool for Everyday Carry

Ohio engineering firm modernizes a classic tool of childhood mischief, combining the portability of a multitool with the fun of a slingshot. Now available at Kickstarter.com.

Schnelle Engineering Titanium Pocket Slingshot

The bulk and heft of traditional slingshot designs has never allowed a user to carry one inconspicuously on a daily basis. With designs as thin as .06 inches and as short as a car key, we’ve changed that.

Schnelle Engineering has announced the release of a new series of micro slingshots for the everyday-carry market. These innovative designs achieve their compact proportions by relying on a unique three-finger hand grip and a skeletonized frame designed with the assistance of finite element analysis. Like the company’s multitools, these slingshots are precision-machined from premium aerospace-grade materials, ensuring high strength and long life despite their diminutive proportions. While operation of these tools is very much like that of classic slingshots and they’re rated to handle typical slingshot bands with draw weights up to 25 pounds, the portability of Schnelle slingshots is unequalled. “The bulk and heft of traditional slingshot designs has never allowed a user to carry one inconspicuously on a daily basis. With designs as thin as .06 inches and as short as a car key, we’ve changed that,” says co-founder Sarah Schnelle.

At this time, Schnelle Engineering’s slingshots are the smallest and lightest slingshots commercially available. And like all the company’s other offerings, these tools are proudly made in the USA. The first production run is being offered on Kickstarter.com, with steel slingshots starting at $19 and titanium versions starting at $29.
