After browsing some random old threads, I saw the one called "Everything is a weapon", in which some people mentioned using a banana to defend oneself. That got me to wonder.. what is everyone's random object that wouldn't be considered a "real" weapon, that they specifically intend to be one? I aquired a banana made of solid marble a few months ago.. the thing looks like an innocent fruit as a glance, but it feels and impacts more solidly than any of the various kubotans I've played with. In response to some family members' concern about my walking home at night after class, I've also adopted carrying a few acorns on my way back. They make nice shuriken substitutes.
