Try a packet of polos; they make a surprisingly good kubotan, and you can eat the evidence!
Keys are nasty, especially Yale types for slashing or punching. A decent size key bunch with a mini-maglite on a lanyard can be wicked, especially for entangling and throwing.
Never be without a decent cotton cleanGent's hanky. It's great as a blinder or distractor, for restraining, choking, garotting and as a mini hojo.
If you want something which will safeley pass airport security, try a traditional bamboo and paper sensu (folding fan). They are very strong, good for deflecting and blinding and very painful to be poked with (folded) or slashed at by. They are also only a few £. Oh, and handy on holiday in hot countries!
Cheers...Jen

Pardon the naive one, but what are polos?

Thanks for your time

I always carry my "duck" as well as a pen with a rubber band wrapped around the middle. Also you can use a C/D or DVD (one you don't care about breaking) snap it in two and you have two cutting edges. A soda can twisted into two will also give some visous cutting edges. ----- ideas only.

I used to carry a "throwaway" wallet that had a few dollars, old license and stuff. Never worried about giving it up, never worried about it getting stolen. Made a great shuriken too. Coins are great for metsubushi. Someone mentioned a rolled up magazine (notebook, newspaper, etc) for wacking...

My mom mastered the art of shoe-rikenjitsu. Dudes, you do not want to be on the receiving end of one of those projectiles! Her aim is awesome.

In a pinch a would think twice about throwing anything on the table (and the table) at attackers. Er, except for the food.. I would finish everything on my plate first (my wife might read this!).

I don't think that a belt has been mentioned.

I'm very interested in this topic... as altough our hands are probably the most ideal weapons we carry everyday... a makeshift weapon can be very comforting for us and very threatening to our assailants.

The problem that I see is that most things we might think to carry are considered to be weapons by most countries. a Kubuton for example... you are carrying a 'self-defense weapon', I think that a pen or a flashlight is more usefull and would be more defendable in court.

this website contains a few interesting things to carry:
http://www.selfdefenseproducts.com/Keychains/index.php

but I see them as all weapons, if anyone has some good suggestions on stuff that would be legal I'd be appreciative.

PS: I can't imagine too many ppl that wouldn't move when poked with a pin or toothpick (a poppy pin maybe)

This is why I like to carry my cane. It is completely legal and defensible. No one can say that you don't "need" it, you hurt your ankle, or twisted your knee! Along with the fact that with the rubber tip it becomes a "medical impliment" makes it very advantageous. If you are standing over your downed opponent with a gun when the police come up, who will have the guns pointed at them? Not the guy on the ground! But if you are standing over them leaning on your cane ----- ?
