BRNLY SlingPop: Pocket Slingshot & Bottle Opener

Inspired by the lighthearted mischief of youth, the BRNLY SlingPop is a modern take on a classic childhood staple with a grown-up twist. Designed for your back pocket, the SlingPop combines the fun of a slingshot with the practicality of a “bar key” bottle opener. 

Dennis the Menace meets Don Draper. The design goal of the SlingPop was to create a fun, high quality product that could go from the backyard to the boardroom and be passed down to the next generation of adventurers. 

YOUR SUPPORT

Since debuting the design, I have been able to make small custom runs of the SlingPop. But being a full-time knifemaker (Burnley Knives), the demand has quickly outgrown my capacity.

Working with my good friends and Kickstarter veterans Scout Leather Co. and Prometheus Lights, I am ready to take the SlingPop into full production. With your support, I will be able to ensure that the SlingPop is available to all those whose inner child beckons for adventure. 

MATERIAL & FINISHES 

The BRNLY SlingPop will be precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum. It is lightweight and durable which makes it a perfect material choice for everyday carry. It can also be color anodized, adding a layer of protection as well as personality to your SlingPop.

For this project, three colors of anodization on the SlingPop are offered:  

  • Clear (Standard Color) – For the old school. Comes with natural band.
  • Violet (Add-On Option)* – For the bold. Comes with natural band.
  • Black (Add-On Option)* – For the BMF. Comes with black band.

* Please see the Rewards & Add-Ons section below for more details.

After machining, each SlingPop is tumbled to deburr and smooth the surface. It is then glass bead blasted for a fine textured finish before being color anodized. 

MADE IN USA

Manufacturing of the SlingPop will take place in Mountain View, California, machined in-house by Prometheus Lights
