I’ll admit to being somewhat tempted by the Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella that ThinkGeek’s been selling. But when it’s raining I like to carry an umbrella that can be easily stashed in my bag, and that’s just not going to happen with one that’s 40 inches long. This miniature version however might just fit the bill. It’s got a faux samurai sword handle just like its bigger brother, but a compact, though historically inaccurate, design that I think I can live with. I just wish it wasn’t $50 (¥4,650) when the ThinkGeek version is just $29.99.
