    A slightly curved and shaped ash sapling roughly one inch in diameter tapering to roughly 3/4 inch at the tapered end which is shaped like the hull of a cigar boat. By casual observation a simple "stick".

    If it's 10 foot long then it's that stick most women wouldn't use to touch me.

    That's because we've learned a frying pan is much more effective.

    Yep that frying pan will fry, sauté, boil, bake and act as a self defense tool.

    When I lived in Dallas, several of us that lived ~250 yards from Albertson's would walk instead of drive, because driving you had to go a mile the wrong way to get to the turnaround lane, whereas walking you could just go straight there. We would often shop at night, and the general practice for passing the corner of a shady neighborhood that abutted ours was to have one bag with just one canned item in it, carried in the dominant hand. One of the girls actually had occasion to use that single-use flail on some punk, and it was devastating.

    Carrying a lot of change in a sock works just as well.

    More likely to be seen as a weapon. A can of pork and beans in a grocery bag is just plain old groceries.

    Besides, there's got to be some extra shaming available for a guy who gets his clock cleaned with ten ounces of sweet peas.

    I prefer Derby blades for actual shaving, but I ended up with most of a box of Sharks that I didn't want to just throw out. They're individually paper-wrapped, tiny enough to fit anywhere, and wedged into a slotted stick, make a sharper knife than you're going to be able to come up with almost any other way. Break one in half and you can make a serious broadhead. A couple dozen of them take up less space in the kit than a matchbook, so you'd have a good supply of spares, too.

    Another option would be a scalpel handle and a big pack of blades; usually for a few bucks on eBay or Amazon you can get a #3 handle and 50+ blades. #15C blades are my personal preference for cutting out splinters or lancing anything, though a variety might be best. #40 is pretty much a ready made small arrowhead, and 23, 24 or 25 would make a good drill point.

    That's a flashback for me......Guy paid for his paper with change from a sock, when I was a kid paperboy.....LOL

    Later, a cartoon in our local paper called "Crankshaft"....old guy did the same thing with a sock full of pennies.
    Often wondered if that writer was in my head....lot's of parallels.

    Purses can be lethal as well.

    Amazing, these (some of these) will be with me on my next adventure!
    In case no one mentioned this for duct tape (I'm sure someone has)... it has saved me couple times from getting super blistered in longer-than-expected walks. Once I feel any warm spots on my feet, I just tape the area and it keep going. No blisters, happy feet.
    Thanks

    Duct tape, especially for the Alone show. Then the gaiters that are just sitting in the corner can be used to carry a couple of gallons of water, and take only 10 minutes each to arrange (to include carrying strap). Instead of taking all day to whittle a wooden bottle that holds one cup of water). :-) Rain pants can hold a lot more water, just tie off the top and bottom of each leg. Your legs get wet anyway, so the pants might as well be utilized for something else that's of value.
