Fan makes Sogeking's slingshot from One Piece


When One Piece got to its Enies Lobby arc (possibly my favorite part so far), Usopp got awesome. Even though he was still totally goofy, his new adopted persona, Sogeking (Sniper King), gave the weakest Straw Hat crew member some serious skills. Part of that was his hand-crafted slingshot, Kabuto.

German YouTube user Jöerg Sprave runs the Slingshot Channel, showing off his custom slingshot creations. Most of them are handheld, but he heard about Sogeking's Kabuto and decided to give it a whirl. Surprisingly, his Kabuto is a very effective weapon, not only as a slingshot, but also as a spear and lance.

Of course, Sprave couldn't install a Breath Dial, and it's missing Usopp's more exotic projectiles. But barring those fantastical elements, it's cool to see someone take an idea from such a cartoony comic and make it work in real life. If I had this, I would totally cosplay Sogeking. Now Sprave should attempt Usopp's newer handheld weapon, Kuro Kabuto.

You can watch video of Kabuto in action below.
