Default How about a tactical spoon?



Advertise Here

I saw some Jason Strathan movie where he's in Vegas and takes on 6 guys outside of a diner armed with only a spoon and butter server. Yeah, a tad far fetched but I see value in every-day items utilized in a pinch.

I personally carry all-metal pens due to the fact that they are a great potential weapon and are stronger than most plastic pens.

A spoon is another thing to have, stash a few in the car console, although you may get busted as a junkie having one. In RL, I never knew one single junkie that used a spoon to cook his drugs. But people believe what they see in the movies and on TV.

The lowly spoon, the forward edge can be sharpened very easily with a Dremel or a file. Old spoons can be found at thrift shops and garage sales for pennies.

Some have a thicker center section, possibly clam-shelled with 2 pieces of decorative wood or plastic. I would just shrink a piece of electrical tubing over it and call it done for a better grip.

The back of the handle can have an edge on it as well, a tool that can be used in both directions without letting go of it. I did a search and came up with nothing as a spoon used for anything other than eating. Any opinions or experience?

Always carry a fork - there might be cheese cake or someone might need to be stabbed Gen Mattis

Having worked as a Correctional Officer I have found many spoons with sharpened handles. Easy to do. Most are worked up to be a "punch" weapons. If you need some sort of defense weapon that is not looked for by the bad guys, a spoon may be a good choice.

I was thinking something a little more refined than a prison shank. But I can see the handle being pretty close to a shank. I'll have to get a few prototypes going.

you could always drill a hole in the middle of the handle to attach 2 of the spoons together...then separate...then you have a ninja Star spoon.

I actually have a table set of knives forks and spoons with antler antler tips for handles.
It would not be out of place to have a set for the EDC bag.

One spoon is not enough!

I carry two extra long handled titanium tactical spoons every day!

In my part of the country Iíve noted two trends that have been going on for so long many people seem oblivious to them!

First and mostly unrelated to this discussion it gets dark every day (On about a 12 hours dark 12 hours light cycle).

During the 12 light hours I may not need my flashlight, but something about there being light causes me to crave food! Twice and sometimes three times during those hours of light I almost without exception need to utilize a spoon (sometimes my tactical spoon) to facilitate this process!

I could highly recommend keeping a spoon handy to anyone who has also noted this trend!

SD

PS: I donít have a tactical fork and that may be something to consider!

PPS: I was forbidden a knife until I turned six and have carried one daily since then! They werenít always black or tactical knives, but hey I was six!

Tungsten chop sticks, armor piercing if you can throw them fast or stab hard enough. Sip from the bowl, no spoon needed.

I'd probably opt for 2 spoons or sporks. Guess you could sharpen one up, leave the other as is...or put em together for a musical instrument?

They probably killed more by giving away MREs. There was one that had little cocktail wieners in it. It was called "The five Fingers of Death". No kidding.

you've been watching too many prison movies using a spoon as a shank ... and I've seen plenty of crackheads use a spoon. You must be hanging around some rich ones if they're using something different
