    Shileileighs [sp???] are fucking awesome. If I ever visit Ireland I plan on getting one and carrying it around everywhere.

    I visited an Irish heritage festival today and saw one old gent walking with a very fine shillelagh. Those sold in gift shops (including in Ireland) tend to be seriously crappy, though - it's hard to find anyone who makes them the old-school way.

    BTW, Cold Steel offers a polypropylene shillelagh that's gotten decent reviews on some Irish stick fighting forums - http://www.coldsteel.com/91pbs.html

    Polypropylene is all fine and good, but if I get a shillelagh [ah, so that's how it's spelt] then I'm going all out for the fine wood.

    I had hoped this thread was about killer umbrellas, awesome man-bags and wonderful shoes.

    I am woefully dismayed.
    Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

    Personally, I think it rocks though I see plenty of humor value in it too (the penguin pic made me lol). It's never going to be better than something purely designed as a weapon from the ground-up, but it's a weapon that's (apparently) durable & solid with good reach (making it solid vs. knife attacks) that can be carried in plain view without causing a commotion.

    Even a sword cane would likely not make it through airport security.

    Silent old man beating the hell out of a heavy bag with an umbrella. That just made my day.

    If only the umbrella cloth was kevlar, then it would be the Rolls-Royce of combat leisure accessories.

    My dad made a beautifull walking stick/stiletto on the end. The thing is hand made and the middle of the stick is filled with a thick steel core. The top handle is a hand carved doves head. One swift knocking to the head=lights out. Still not as beautiful as a shillelagh in my opinion.
