Thanks for that. The site is a bit odd to navigate, with nothing below the "descriptions to follow". But then I saw the weapons list on the left side. Very nice.

No problem Matt.

I really like the rake weapon and I used to think to myself when seeing one in my backyard "This would make a cool weapon", so there you go!

Matt, do you think an umbrella of a specific kind (I don't know which kind though, maybe you know?) could be used effectively as a weapon?

If I run into any more cool sites I'll let you guys know!

While not strictly about umbrellas, some arts have trained to use the cane as weapon. Check this:

Most normal umbrellas are not really suitable for SD, as they are too flimsy. There are some makers of heavy-duty umbrellas for SD purposes. Google "umbrella for self defense", you should find something.
