Emphasis for a Self Defense weapon can easily be distinguished by legality and the absence of long-term collateral damage which can be
inflicted by that weapon. For example, a self defense weapon should be used to disable an attacker long enough to get
to safety or find help, without causing permanent damage such as cuts or lethal wounds. This classification of weapons
or deterrents is sold by SwordsAxe.com to civilians for their own personal use and advise proper training before relying
soley on just a weapon.
The prime example of self defense item would be pepper spray, since it is fully legal and improper use cannot cause
permanent damage. Pepper spray is also called Mace, containing ingredients such as Oleoresin Capsicum for burning
effect, tear gas, UV identifying dye, and other substances. The collapsible expandable police baton is a steel shaft
which is usually about 15-26 inches long and folds down to fit in a small holster. Batons are great for using against
an attacker with a knife, and can instantly deploy and disable their legs in one swift stroke. Stun guns and tasers use
a battery to amplify an electrical shock to an attacker, disabling their motor skills by non-lethal electrocution for
between 30 seconds and 10 minutes. A stungun is a convenient way to defend yourself and is very effective at intimidating
even the largest of foes. There are others like knuckle keychains and kubatons as well.
