Power hankies are really easy to spot. Carry a ballpoint pen.

Bic lighter reinforces a fist pretty good . Add a silver ring or two and youve almost got knuckes .
My dad got jumped by a guy that did that , split his skull above his eyebrow and sent him to the hospital in the city .
When I picked him up he was drugged pretty good , sinuses kept bleeding into his stomach making him puke .
He's a window cleaner and he started getting vertigo after that , almost had to quit his job . Messed his vision up too , has scar tissue behind his eye now docter says it'll probably become a brain tumer one day .
All from a bic lighter and a couple rings .
Cops couldn't even press an assault charge because there were no witnesses , or a weapons charge because no one could prove anything .
If you have any empathy you might want to consider how messed up he got from a simple punch in the head . Self defence is one thing , but know what your causing when you do it .

honestly, if you use something like that, you might as well have a real weapon. that's a biker weapon, and cops don't look too keenly on that...


flashlights are good, though...

OC spray is easy to carry.

a lot of stuff out there, really...

a bic lighter makes for sold stability in a punch but wearing rings is more likely to bust your own knuckles. you're own mind (wisdom/common sense) is your best concealed weapon.

A big heavy flashlight, especially LED ones as the bulbs are harder to break. It acts as both a club and more usefully a torch that you can shine in the attackers face.

Nasal spray full of isopropyl alcohol works pretty well.

Car keys used like a knife (not sticking out between your knuckles).

A regular plastic pen or one of those 'tactical' pens if you have too much money.

A multitool held in the fist.

Coldsteel sell a hairbrush with a dagger in it.

Steelcap boots.

Flashlight.

Umbrella.

Rolled up magazine.

A high quality umbrella is amazing. A friend of the family is a kindly Mr. Rogers type, who is never seen without his toy poodle in his jacket. He's also a 20 year Marine.

He's been jumped once with the poodle and his sturdy umbrella. It did not go well for his assailants.

As far as how to handle the aftermath- always be polite and respectful to cops. Dress somewhat well (no camo unless you're hunting)+ be as helpful as you can.

If one person on the scene is relatively composed, polite, and says things like "I tried to get them to calm down, but they wouldn't stop coming at me" and the other one is being held back by their friends while screaming and spitting... the cops will believe and be on the side of the person who's not making their job harder, every time.

I have always felt that a butane light, the small torch type would be good to carry, they burn very hot, don't blow out in the wind, good to light your cigars, and would sure cause someone to let go of you in hurry.

I saw a guy get punched in the jaw by a guy holding a 9/16 deep well socket once seemed to work real well.

I have to mention this one...my wife and I were in the local hardware store the other day..man ain't that a walk-in armoury..and we were looking at mops and such, when I happened to pick up a tile scrubbing brush.



It's very sturdy, and the handle doesn't bend hardly at all, and the end of the handle protrudes below your fist.

So you've got a knuckleduster and a kubotan like striking end.
Imagine getting those stiff bristles in the eyes / face, not to mention that the hard plastic backing doesn't give.

You can apparently use it for scrubbing your kitchen and bathroom tiles with as well.

If properly trained a Bic Pen can be deadly. It can be carried in plain sight and attract no attention.

What the hell man? You were in a hardware store full of screwdrivers, metal spikes, and sorts of other sharp, pointing and/or hard blunt objects and you pick maid's scrubbing tool? I'm just kidding but it's really kind of funny.

Ah, yes...but all those sharp pointy things are known to be used on occassion as weapons..whereas the innocent tile scrubber...

You could walk into the White House with the tile scrubber in your bag and no one would even consider it a weapon.

Why not the simplest non weapon of all; a simple walking stick/cane?
Street legal anywhere. Just because its 1-1/4 inch faceted heartwood hickory doesn't mean a guy with arthritis can't have his cane...

Its kind of bulky but I have a can of wasp spray in my car door & I can carry it in my purse if need be. It is about as painful as pepper spray and can shoot 20 feet vs 5 feet.
