Beards are great. They keep your face warm, protect against the elements, and store little bits of food for easy consumption—but have you ever thought about using it as a weapon? Odds are, no, you haven’t. Neither has viral YouTube personality and slingshot designer Joerg Sprave until now. Not content with traditional materials, Sprave decided to turn his beard hair into a slingshot through an epoxy mold and some sanding.
It’s utterly disgusting, but works fairly well. After 50 days of beard growing, Sprave even had enough hair left over for two bullets.
The most impressive part of this video is probably the fact that Sprave shaved his beard with a folding kukri, specifically the Cold Steel Rajah.
