    Killer Umbrellas

    AKA: YouTube - THE ORIGINAL Scary 'Mary Poppins' Recut Trailer

    According to a recent post at Gizmondo (Link), the Philippine secret service has been using the 'Unbreakable Fighting Umbrella' for those rainy days. Apparently these things run for $180, function as a club, and keep you dry.

        My grand father used to walk around town with the walking stick version.

          I do that sometimes, especially when I'm traveling/visiting a new city for the first time, or at night.

            Better check the legality of the concealed blades laws then, if you already haven't. Granted there's about as little chance of you needing it as you getting in trouble for having it (or of it even being found out), but if you're going to play the safe side with a broadsword (er... stick sword) then you might as well play it safe with the law.

            Then again, most cops in my suburban little town wouldn't actually know the law to deal with that sort of thing and some might even have the "WHOA COOL!" reaction.

              I think this umbrella is for the larpers. Why are we bothering again?

                  Oh, and unbreakable is all fine and dandy, but can it fly?



                  Or talk?

                    Ah - no, I meant I sometimes carry a regular, strong walking stick, not a sword cane.

                    My grandmother was once passing through customs with a walking cane she'd bought in Italy, and suddenly a stiletto blade slipped out of it. She had no idea she'd bought a concealed weapon. Fortunately, the customs guys were understanding (this was decades before 9/11).

                      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.

                              No wonder, because this dude was also that dude:
