    Gods, George Takei just posted this in FB as a good idea! And others agreed! I was a voice of dissent.

    Jut big enough to tick off an attacker, especially in the hands of an untrained person. Either carry a weapon or don't! But this - this is like some half-assed fake weapon.

    People on there posting obviously don't train. They are talking about how a slash could kill someone. Obviously never trying to hit a target against a resisting opponent. The chance of a serious strike with this vs just ticking off your attacker. This makes me so mad!:mad:

    People peddling a terrible product, hoping to make money off of women's fear.

    Whilst I agree it's a terrible Idea, I hate to break it to you, but George doesn't actually post on his Facebook or twitter, it's all done by staff, so it's possible George is doing this for money.

    I thought it looked like one of those things that helps you uncork stuff.

    Isn't that just basically reinventing fingernails?

    Nope. I was going back and forth on the website for waaaay too long before I understood that the pink part bends/collapses and is just there for looks ... to make it pink. So it's a single pink pokey thing.

    Rather reminded me of the rose in "The Little Prince." You know, four sharp thorns to keep away hungry sheep and hungry tigers. Except here, it's just one thorn.

    How do you even use that? If it's worn like a ring then when you make a fist the "claw" will point downwards (with a horizontal fist).
    I see in the picture that you have to flex your fist back to make it prominent and thus, structurally, be all over the place?

    Exactly! It is cheaply made and not structured properly for the basics of any strike. Even the hand slap shown above. You would have to twist your hand in a way that makes no sense to even try to get that tiny blade to hit. And chances are, you could injure the finger with this apparatus on it, or your wrist, because you aren't structurally sound for any strike. And it is designed in a way where it really wouldn't be able to do more than a minor slice that would just tick off and escalate the actions of any opponent!

    Goes to show that, just because someone says they have a law enforcement background, doesn't mean they are going to be knowledgable in SD or MA.

    Whaaaa? These are being advertised as self defense products? These were originally called Deep Crisco Rings(TM) and were meant for an entirely different purpose that would violate ToS to write.
