crab,

You aren't seeing it. The use of alternative weapons is mostly for defense, not to attack you but to take you're attack appart.

Actually for crab's I normally just use kleenex as my force multiplier.

It both works well and can be used to clean my fingers off afterwards.

Iím very confident in my abilities, Iím able to pretty much use anything I can lay my hands on as a weapon. However you are still missing the point, just two words "LEAGAL RAMIFICATIONS." A knife has only one speed "LETHAL" and will likely land you in jail when you use it. In some areas simply possessing the weapon will get you put away. As far as an intimidation factor, some people donít get intimidated they just change their tactics.

sure a pen may work, but why use it when something else works so much better, i can tell you now if you tried to attack me with a pen you would get whooped


And I feel pretty confident in saying, youíd never see it coming.

Crab,

I understand your only 15 or 16 years old and by default think your 10ft tall and bullet proof. Well your not but thatís a different topic all together. The simple fact of the matter is your in over your head hear and don't know what your talking about. Your trying to make an argument of something you have limited experience with. A good majority of people you are arguing with have been training longer than you have been alive. You obviously aren't getting what people are trying to explain to you so your pretty much a lost cause until you grow up a little and get some experience under your belt.

As someone stated before if you are caught with a switchblade, even if your not using it, you go to jail. It's like that anywhere in the US and i'm sure there are similar laws in many other countries. If you were to be attacked and used a switchblade to defend yourself you go to prison, if they die you go for much longer. No ifs, ands or buts about it. There are no "what if" scenarios. You engaged someone with a known illegal weapon; simply possessing one implies intent to use it to harm someone.

The use of a pen on the other hand, depending on how you articulate things to the authorities, is a simple writing utensil. It's an "improvised" weapon meaning you are not carrying it for the purpose of doing harm so someone but instead used what you had available to protect your life. The fact that it can be used just as effectively as a knife or many other intended weapons to defend your life negates you entire argument.

Just because you lack the foresight to see the benefits and uses of certain improvised weapons doesn't mean they are any less effective or practical. Train for a few more years and get some experience then check back with us in about a decade.
