For a strong limit cardinal $\kappa$ the notion of *$\kappa$-Kurepa tree* is trivial: the full binary tree is a $\kappa$-Kurepa tree. Accordingly, we consider the following strengthening:

A *slim $\kappa$-Kurepa tree* is a tree $T$ of height $\kappa$ such that for every $\alpha < \kappa$ the $\alpha$-th level of $T$ has cardinality $\left| \alpha \right|$, and $T$ has more than $\kappa$ many branches.

If $\kappa$ has countable cofinality, it's easy to construct a slim $\kappa$-Kurepa tree. On the other hand, if $\kappa$ is measurable (or just ineffable) then there is no slim $\kappa$-Kurepa tree. If $\kappa$ is inaccessible, then my understanding from comments here is that there is a $\mathord{<}\kappa$-closed forcing to create a slim $\kappa$-Kurepa tree (but this destroys measurability.) What about the uncountable cofinality singular case?

If $\kappa$ is a singular strong limit cardinal of uncountable cofinality, can there exist a slim $\kappa$-Kurepa tree?

EDIT: This turned out to be fairly easy; see my answer below. However, I would like to know where I can find this result proved (or at least mentioned) in print. So I will accept the first answer that tells me this.
