Self Defense Night Stand Provides All-Around Bedside Protection

Self Defense Night Stand

It’s important to have protection by your bedside. Not that kind of protection, in case that’s what you’re thinking. What I mean is protection for physical attacks from burglars who want to rob you dry when you’re at your most defenseless. You could get a gun, a stun gun, or stock up your bedside drawer with pepper spray.

Or you can skip the bullets and go for brute force with the Self Defense Night Stand. It’s a bedside table where the base is actually a baseball bat, and where the flat surface is actually a shield. It’s a regular old bedside table the rest of the time when all is well and good.

The way I see it, this dual-purpose table is like a cross between a novelty and something that you can actually use. While the shield might be sufficient when your attacker is only armed with a knife, you might need more than just wood to defend against a gun.

Your Flashlight, Now With 100% More Bat

Self-Defense-Baseball-Bat-Flashlight

Strange noise in the middle of the night got you scared? There’s a bunch of things you could do. If you’re not the shoot first and ask questions later kind of person, these might include grabbing a baseball bat and exploring. How about a baseball bat with an integrated flashlight? It makes sense to think that if it’s the middle of the night and you’re terrified, you may not think to turn the lights on. Or maybe there’s a power outage. Or whatever… We can conceive of a bunch of situations where you’d want something like this. It has a light output of 200 lumens, and even a strobe function that could disorientate someone whose eyes have accustomed to the dark. And at $30, it’s a bargain.

Manticuda Knife Is Created With Some Serious Cutting In Mind

It’s hard to look at the Manticuda and think that it was created with anything other than killing in mind. Featuring a pistol grip which allows you to hold it in a more natural fashion, its forward thrusts will carry more impact as they are aligned with the forearm axis and leave the wrist straight. In other words, you can punch-stab. The blade itself

features a wide blade design to create large, gaping (i.e. noticeable) wounds to quickly disable someone, as in a weapon retention engagement. The double-edges give the knife twice the cutting perimeter/potential with no unusable/wasted space on the blade periphery. Blade cutouts reduce weight and serves various utility functions such as a Nail Puller, Bottle Opener, or other prying tasks.

There’s an argument to be made about self-defense, and we suppose the Manticuda could scare would-be assailants away. And it would definitely do more than disable them if you end up having to use it. Now, we don’t condone violence nor are we in the business of promoting products intended for killing. But we also believe in an adult’s ability to make his own decisions and carry something as badass as the Manticuda without going around maiming people.

It’s $275.
