No. Lacking a pistol, the next best choice would be a fixed blade knife of adequate length and the train to use it. (My wife sometimes carries a Gerber Guardian.) Third choice would be an automatic knife, such as the Benchmade Infidel, or a sap. In general, I leave all 3 at home and carry a Key-Tec P32 with a belt clip when jogging and such.

The claw would be a deadly weapon in court. If you are going the deadly weapon route, why would you not choose a firearm, which is much more effective?

I'm thinking a jab to the throat - forget using it as a cat's claw. Smile

If you are going to come into melee distance with an aggressor, why not use a good knife? A knife will catch DNA.

If you want to go less than lethal, why not a Tazer or pepper spray? You get to keep the attacker at distance.

Why not just carry a cat and throw it at the bad guy?

Pairs well with nunchucks I'm sure.

But ludicrous, otherwise.

At that close of a range it would be woefully inadequate, and a poor choice compared to a regular old knife which at least has other uses.

Who thinks up shit like this? Someone has watched too many kung-fu movies? A person with an MBA who also watches lots of kung-fu movies?

I'm pretty sure I saw that one, I think it's entitled Four Claws of Fail in the fall.

I ain't fucking around with some cut rate Freddy Krueger/Wolverine/Thundercat bullshit. This isn't a video game. Shit like this creates a false sense of security. DNA collection is swell but getting away is the real priority. Pepper spray and a track meet work just fine.

better than harsh words I suppose

i still think pepper spray is the best non-lethal option for many women

guns are great but we all know some people can't / won't take the time to be come proficient

not to mention the places you are prohibited from having one...

Big Grin Wink




This claw thing reminds me of the Winkler "tool" that I think DocSteve helped create...


But I'm with everyone else - just carry a gun.

Now if the claws were about 12" long and were blades, we would be talking.

Slightly old thread to ressurect, but it looks like Texas is pending Gov. Abbott's signature to lift the ban on carrying of knuckles as well as clubs.

FYI. Smile

Hopefully Gov Abbott signs as Texas' long standing knuckles law is idiotic.

Yeah, really... I can see two possible results from trying to use these to fight off an attacker.

1. You didn't need them to begin with and everything is fine.
2. You have pissed off the attacker enough to make absolutely certain you get really fucked up or killed.
