In response to the abduction and murder of Sarah Everard I’ve been thinking and researching of ways that women could legally protect them selfs in such a situation.
Obviously I for one when walking on my own in the past have had a phone call with a friend just in case plus I’ve been holding my keys in my hand in case I’m attacked. With this I thought why not make something that is safe to be used everyday and that is pretty oblivious to anyone else.
These Kubotan key rings could be in addition to you making that phone call or carrying your keys to defend yourself. They are made from epoxy resin and whilst they aren’t sharp to the point they’d be just as good as using a key or a pen to startle the person who is trying to harm you which could make the difference of getting away from them. But the difference would be that you could have one amongst your keys or clip it on to your handbag.
So at this moment in time I have a few ready to send (RTS) and there wouldn’t be an option on colour or shape as you can see by both pictures one set is shaped like a pen and is curved and the other picture they are the same size but is flat but when I make these they do need a good 24-48 hours to set so you’d be looking at a few days until your order could be sent.
If carried as a Kubotan keyring and not with the intention to use it then it is legal. You may use it as a “weapon of opportunity” so long as it is not used in a manner intended to cause grievous or lasting injury.
Keyring is under 6 inches (5.5”) which also means you are legal to carry it with good cause.
These are £5 posted. Order should be sent within 3 days if new key rings are required
In reference to the new finish options available on this listing they mean:
- Mica pigments - these are the photo and video with my cutting mat in the background. These have a solid colour throughout and have a twinkle of sparkle in them.
- clear coloured W/glitter - these are the red, teal and light pink background pictures. Very clear coloured resin with lots of the same coloured glitter in them.
- Clear mixology glitter - these are the hot pink background picture. These are a clear resin with two tone chunky and fine glitter
