SELF DEFENSE FAQS
- What kinds of self-defense weapons are available to me?
The most common types of self-defense products you can get are discreet weapons, stun guns, batons and pepper spray.
- What are discreet self-defense weapons?
These personal defense items are small enough to be hidden on your person, integrated into an item that is part of your clothing or in the guise of an everyday-use item. Some examples include boot and neck knives, belt buckle knives and sword canes, and tactical pens and comb knives.
- What is the difference between a taser and a stun gun?
A taser, which is shaped like a gun, fires two electrodes into a target with wires connecting them back to the gun. When the trigger is pulled, an electrical charge is conducted into the target through the wires. A stun gun also conducts an electrical charge into its target, but the electrodes have to be applied directly to the target, as they are built into the device itself.
- How does pepper spray work?
Pepper spray is basically capsaicin, which is a chemical derived from peppers or chilis, made into aerosol form. It inflames the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. This causes irritation of the eyes, a runny nose, coughing and difficulty breathing. Depending on the exposure, the effects can last from 20 to 90 minutes.
- What is a tactical pen?
A tactical pen, sometimes called a kubaton, is the size and shape of a standard ink pen and can be used as a jabbing weapon against an assailant. Most of the models actually work as an ink pen and some have an integrated glass breaker or DNA collector. There are also models that actually have a hidden blade.

Justin (MD) - Great for the price!
I bought two more for friends because I liked the first one so much. The flashlight is bright and reliable, however I wish there was a different way to select bright, low, and strobe light. The stun gun seems powerful and I hope I never have to use it. I like that it's rechargeable but I wish the power cable was a bit longer. If it was a bit smaller, my wife would probable carry it more. But overall you cant beat this price.

Matt (Washington) - My favorite pair
I am a collector of only brass made knuckles and these are my favorite pair. Ive bought a pair of "ergonomically fitted" ones for $135.00 and while they do fit better, I love that these are the classics, fit very well, and have the perfect weight. These are like a doorknob, the real deal! Pick up a piece of history here!

Jim (Iowa) - NICE
Very good quality. Solid, sharp, the weigh is impressive, quality wood shaft. I haven't figured out how to stop the rattle when walking on hard surfaces, but not too bad. Sword canes have been around for along time but for the quality at this price. I love the concealment.
