I don’t know how you did that on a belt sander. Beautiful job. I could see how that could be a weapon until I saw the note on using it with a hammer fist strike. I’m in pain just thinking about it

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

That thing is both beautiful and wicked looking. Quite the contrast. Thanks for the link.

Do you make them for actual use or display? I was reading the link and see they suggest using it as a key chain self defense device. Just wanted to ask how heavy it is? I remember reading one time that heavy key chains can actually damage an ignition over time. Oh well who cares right… if the car won’t start you can use it to beat the car too.

All kidd’n aside the wood and metal together is really amazing!

Wow, very cool. Beautiful and sinister at the same time. I’d carry one of these on my key chain, but I fly frequently and it’d just be a matter of time before I forgot it and got in confiscated by security…

First off, a very beautiful piece of work.

Second, in a training class i took a medium strength blow from a Kubotan in the breastbone. That brought me to my knees. I would hate to feel what a full force blow would feel like.

Cool and a handy self-defense tool! Like the beautiful shape and great wood and metal combo. Great job!
