Joerg Sprave has this month has featured three students on his Slingshot channel who have created a survival axe with a slingshot concealed in the handle, together with other useful gadgets for outdoor survival.
The very unique and original weapon has been designed by students from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) after they were given a project brief to create a new survival tool. Check out the video after the jump to learn more.
Joerg Sprave explains : “The outcome is actually very nice: A good size, heavy steel axe, atatched to a thick tubular steel handle. The handle is hollow and holds four aluminium tubes – a magnesium firestarter and three steel tipped bolts. One of the bolts even contains an active carbon water filter, so it can be used like a straw that at the same time cleans the water.”
