From time to time, I’ll add some things to the Accessories page of Noreast Whips. This item is called the Keychain Kubotan. The pic displays one at 4 inches, the other at 6 inches. Things like these have been produced for a while now by companies which manufacture & market martial arts & self defense tools. You can read about the history of it here. I had the idea to make one of these that featured a braided paracord overlay. There’s a cabinet drawer in my shop full of steel rod ends, left over from the steel used for bullwhip handles. I just figured that someday there would be a use for them. A 1.250 inch key ring is attached to one end, while the handle is overlaid in 12 strands of paracord. The pictured items are overlaid in black & olive drab, featuring two turk’s head knots. These can be made in any color that’s listed on the chart, even to match your whip if you’d like. Price is $22 purchased by itself, or $20 with a whip. Carry one for your own personal defense or just as an outward accessory. I’m sure it’ll get noticed by some, & make a great conversation starter.
