    One thing that cannot be discounted - is the debilitating effect of a high power flashlight. Generally these situations we are talking about are based upon someone seeking to predate upon another. No predator feels confident when their primary sense is taken from them. That gives you precious time.

    There are still these original shovels out there on ebay etc that ARE the original Special Forces model. Get one of these and it will not only work well for self defense. It will appreciate in value. Oh, and they work great for digging dirt, mud & snow too!

    Great looking kukuri, I feel one may be in my future. Can you share its weight and length? I have a nice village style kvluk from Gehazi and am considering a prettier companion for it. Plus one thats a bit heavier f for chopping. Yours looks like it hits all the marks.

    As much as I love so many of the blades here and am drooling over the pics. Yours looks to be a very practical blade

    Yeah, and the elbow to capture and control, they angles to redirect and reduce impact while blocking. I have several impressive Blake's, but the kukuri shape an mass are far superior for defense. I have been searching the web for some kata's. Probably better for me that I havent found them yet. Im only using it for weight for now, holding it up and slow circular motions just to build up some strength.

    Reminds me of a German sergeant who had sewn his rank signs on his baby blue night suit. I guess in case the tooth fairy visits him at night she'll know who's boss.

    My 18" Hanshee at on 19 ounces is a fast backup weapon if my M4 runs out of ammo in HD.

    Nice knockout stick hehehe, I love the big ole burl knot. I would love to find a piece of wood like that. I had a custom black walnut hiking staff that can be broken down into three pieces. Its built very sturdily but I don't think it can deliver a serious blown that the ones I have seen in this thread.

    I will post pics of my current home defense kit once the kukri arrives. I like showing off my custom AR builds anyway ;). I'll make sure I post a pic of my latest finished project...

    luckily her apt. like mine (i was on an upper floor tho), faced an open cow and red ant cactus pasture, she was using a .22 lr rifle. she's lucky she even hit the perp.the trooper did tell her she shoulda waited till he got inside. it was a tad illegal to shoot thru the door. not sure if she had to replace the door or just putty the holes & dab some paint on. i would have waited it the bedroom & used the 12 ga. as he came thru the bedroom door. the wife would likely have shot him in the crotch with her .357.

    I have heard that before... Its hard to see how the world views you through their eyes. I have been told that I am an intimidating fellow, the tattoos and shaved head don't help either. My size has helped me a lot through life. I have never been in a physical fight probably because people back down the minute I raise my voice. The only person that ever stands up to me is my 120lbs 5'3 wifey. Now that woman can kick my ass :eek:... prob cause I don't fight back. I really am just a big old softy, but don't tell the bad guys that ;)

    Me not afraid! Bigger they are, harder they fall, I have naturally shaved head (no tattoo's, afraid of needles very much!).

    5'-5 & 9/10's" tall when I was standing up stretched. 160 before I got the keg, just catch me after lunch and my nap and I'll give ya a little what for.

    WAIT! Did that say 6'5"? Sorry wrong thread, my bad.

    Ok... Maybe this will change your mind. Here are the wife's and my home defense weapons. She has mastered the Beretta 92fs and can hit a paper plate @200 yards with the AK type56.
    I have my trusty 1911 that is an extension of me. Oh and my latest AR build, sooooo many parts and upgrades I would need two or three paragraphs to explain all the mods and trick components...

    Here is a little closer look at the AR and 1911...

    Hope you enjoyed.

    Not afraid! I'm an expert at bobbing and weaving, specially in my power chair. Quick turns. White flag, yellow racing stripe down back.

    I seek a truce.

    best defense knife is the one that loads .45 acp 230 jhp or 12ga slug and goes bang.
