ST-1 stabby thing self-defense tool
#1
On the mid-tech side of things, I came up with a self-defense tool that debuted at Blade Show this summer:  the ST-1.  They're waterjet cut from 1/4" 4140, ground and heat treated, with a Cerakote ceramic gun coating, with Boltaron sheaths.

There's no blade, but the tip is quite pointy and beveled.

A closer look at the tip prior to heat treatment and Cerakote.

As Tobin demonstrates, they can even be quad-wielded.  Big Grin

That is a Great Hairpin for those who use hairpins.

I have a Daughter in law that has worn Titanium Chopsticks for hairpins (when she wears hairpins) for the last 15 years or so.

Definitely a very nice upgrade!

Thought it was an AR charging handle at first.

Good job. Looks dangerous.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. ---Robert Heinlein

Now that's a tactical knitting needle!
Message of Insight and Unity 

We go into the wilderness to fulfill our hearts and empty our minds of life's garbage.
The gear we leave behind and the challenges we encounter, 
Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.
Of Survivalists and Bushcrafters, Primitive Technologists too, we are one.........

It is the wilderness within, we strive for first and always.
Not everyone can have a cabin in the mountains.
The thread that connects us, is fine like silk and strong as steel.
Together, the song of the wilderness is the song we sing!

"And can I say something else?"
Bushcrafting is "doing what you want to do." 
Survival is "doing what you have to do"
Primitive Technology is about all of the above........

Thanks, guys!

There's a whole niche market of stabby things out there, some taking the form of picks/awls/chopsticks.
