Go check out THREAT (opening March 9th) by AmDC that's all about weapon of defense in every shape & form.
Damn right this is a show about weapns! This is America we're talking about here!
All this is more about encouraging designers from all over America to all come together and have fun designing & create cool shiz.
Here's what we made....
Hit & Strangle Stick
Yup! You guessed it! You hit, then strangle! It's EASY!
This defense object is a sleek hitting stick made with the use aluminum and copper tubing and fishing rope inspired by dog catchers.
The simple telescoping action allows the defender to tighten the rope by pushing the aluminum tube forward and therefore can capture (and strangle) the invader from afar.
That'll show you to never walk in the house with your shoes on!
