Thanks to the Kubotan, the Pen May Very Well Be Mightier than the Sword

Perhaps it is a stretch to say that a pen is mightier than the sword. Then again, given that modern society doesn’t quite let you take a sword wherever you may go, a pen in the hand is worth more than a sword at home. Self-defense scenarios occur when you least expect it and for much of society, they occur when they are least prepared to defend themselves. That’s the beauty of inconspicuous everyday carry defense weapons. It might be a decade before you need to use it, but you have not been inconvenienced and bystanders are none the wiser that you have been armed this entire time. The Kubotan is the size of a pen, but packs a defense capability far outside its size. The might mouse, if you will, will be there for you when you need it most. Thanks to the Kubotan, it may very well be true that the pen is mightier than the sword.

The History of the Kubotan

Nicknamed the “instrument of attitude adjustment”, the Kubotan emerged in the 1960’s and was modeled on a small bamboo weapon called the “hashi stick.” Composed of extremely hard materials, it can be used to strike the fleshy and sensitive parts of the body. It can be used with a swinging ice pick hammerfist motion or a stabbing motion with its pointy tip. In either case, this small pen sized object knows how to bring the pain when pain is needed. That’s why people are grabbing up the self-defense object like this Tomahawk TC4 Titanium Kubotan Self-Defense Stick.

Self Defense Kubotan

This Kubotan is made of TC4 Aluminum alloy and is solid, robust, and lightweight. What makes it truly remarkable as a self-defense everyday carry weapon is the fact that it is most often used as a keychain. This means you can carry it with you wherever you go and no one is the wiser that you are ready to deliver a big fight to any bad guy coming your way. The value is in the obscurity of the weapon and can be carried most anywhere without any drawing attention or getting screened out by security. In a world where most people carry a pen in their pocket or purse, there is simply no reason not to throw a Kubotan right beside it.

A Kubotan for Every Scenario

On its own merit, the Kubotan stands alone as a worthy purchase for self-defense reasons alone. However, because every survival scenario is unique, you may need a few more tools at your disposal. That’s why we are introducing the T-05 Titanium Coated Tactical Pen Flashlight. Made from stainless steel and coated with colorized titanium, it features a tungsten head that is embedded in the end. That means what it hits, it breaks. Whether it is a window used for escape or the face of someone intent on doing you harm, this Kubotan delivers.

However, this Kubotan isn’t done yet. It also serves as a flashlight, wire-cutting device, screwdriver, fire starter, survival whistle and pocket knife. Then, just because we can we’ve even made it into a fully functional pen with which to write. Having one of these bad boys on your desk at work is like having your own personal Chuck Norris. Again, most people have no clue about its potential use as a weapon. To the average onlooker, it is simply a pen.

Everyday Carry Self-Defense Weapons

There are countless instructional videos online which highlight the tactics and strikes that can be delivered by a Kubotan. As far as everyday carry self-defense weapons go, this is one of the most versatile and inconspicuous as they come. If the Kubotan is not your style, then don’t forget to check out the rest of our everyday carry self-defense weapons. Remember, the bad guys are not going to give you a heads up on the manner, day, and time in which they plan to strike.

The obligation to be ready to defend yourself and those you love is on you. With everyday carry self-defense weapons like this available, there is no excuse not to be ready. As they say in the military, “if you find yourself in a fair fight, then your tactics suck.” There is nothing fair about a fight for you life. There is only winning and losing. Don’t let yourself get caught in a fair fight for life. Be ready for the day most people dread with a Kubotan in your hand.
