Well if you are that insanely determined on defending yourself..just carry a switch around. Sure its illegal, but hell, whos gonna search you unless you use it

Now think of a pen. A pens sharp end is the top, meaning the only movement you could do would be a thrust.




Your thinking is limited, you use a pen like youd use an Ice pick with the pointy end sticking out the pinky end of your fist. Vicious weapon if you hold it right. If you ask around some of the LEO types they could probably confirm that the majority of improvised prison weapons are stabbing type implements and they are used very effectively. Bottom line is that anything is better than nothing when out numbered and outgunned.

And again the thread is about legal carry weapons, which in many areas excludes edged weapons. Another good choice is a small flashlight like a mini maglite or other similar brand, makes a good fistload use it like a kobutan (kind of handy to have a light anyway.) A bigass locking type carabineer can work like a fistload/knuckles and its handy to hang your flash light from.

In your vehicle how about a 12 oz. can of Bear spray. Most personal defense pepper spray is 5 10% Bear spray is 20% +. Four-cell flashlight under the seat or military type e-tool are pretty affective. My daughter carries a aluminum bat in the backseat of her car along with ball and glove for window dressing.

swseibukan my thnking isnt limited, the fact is its a silly idea, if you have the proficiency to wield a damn pen like its a blade, then you sure as hell dont need it. Pepper spray is the answer

Crab...have you ever been assaulted? I mean...seriously assaulted by someone, taken by surprise by someone with the intent to harm you? I only ask...because I have. Personally, I doubt the efficacy of spray in time sensitive situations. If I had a choice between spray and a titanium pen...I'd take the pen. Feel free to stick to spray. Perhaps you can brain the guy with the empty can when it's done.

For christ sake harlan, your argument is ridiculous, If you really are capable of using a pen like a blade, you dont need it. There you go, oh yeah and if you can show me a video of someone demonstating pen fighting techniques id be very interested.

Please refrain from immoderate speech. I've noted swearing in your posts, and it is not allowed...although there is some leeway depending of the value of the post.

Also, I did not say I would use a pen like a blade. With my beginner understanding of weapons, I would probably be thinking of chizi kun bo.

exactly, If you cant weild it like a blade, it is almost useless. You can only thrust, and even your average mugger would just laugh at you. Just carry a switch around man, because a pen for self defence is stupid.
