Human hands work pretty well too. A cheap ball point pen or pencil to the throat works wonders.

The final weapon is always the brain.

If you're in a NPE, check out the Benchmade 1100 pen:

A sling (the ancient kind) is remarkably easy to make, although it is difficult to become truly deadly with one.

One weapon, that has killed people instantly, but not used as a weapon, just as a joke is compressed air from a blow gun.

In hand to hand, a steel post can impail, pitchfork is nasty.

A tree branch held back until a pursuer is in range.

Running in the dark and misleading a pursuer in to some thing that would impail them, if you know the area very well.

Aerosol can and a cigarette lighter, gas nozzle and lighter.

Can of ether might knock out someone. Chloroform?

I hope this is for last ditch self defense!!!

this is the only forum i would write these types of things on.
i hope this helps.

trustingly

I had a friend I meet in school back in 1984 that worked in a federal pen he said it could be a deadly weapon if you wrapped it tight. He had a broken arm as result of being hit across the forearm with a magazine during the Atlanta Pen riot thank God he was able to retane his ruger 556. I told him he should have used it but he was a bleeding heart lib.

I can't understand why a "bleeding heart" Lib just won't DIE.

sand or dirt to the eyes is always the best improvised weapon.
also the old soap in the sock, or a combo lock works well too.
also the rolling disc of say like a pizza cutter, or a electric saw blade tied on a rope strong string or chain is a highly effective long range weapon.

as for projectiles use the tube of a ball point pen remove backing, ink holder and tip so its just a plastic tube. and with two rubberbands and a mechanical pencil you have a pretty strong dark gun. actually punctured my friends skin back in high school not believing there was any real "power behind the punch."

PM me if you have any questions.

i prefer the combo lock in the sock though. ( not just because it rhymes either)
