Offered is ONE 5-1/2" Length x .44 Inch Diameter "Patent Pending" Grade 5 Titanium (6AL-4V Alloy) Easy-Carry, Compact, Ergonomic Firm Grip, Self Defense Kubotan / Yawara Stick.
Also useful as a "Door Knocker", or "Pill Crusher" to crush and mix your medications into a liquid, for less stomach upset &/or faster absorption to ease that headache a little faster! I use a bottle cap to crush the powder into. "Acupressure" procedures are also possible uses for this stick :-)
These are designed, hand made, & assembled in the USA by: Ti Rod Tactical™, and have the
same Fist Lock™ firm grip design as many of my other compact self defense Yawara Sticks. This is my full weight model, but I also offer a little thinner lightweight model in another offering,... and at a more "compact" price :-)
NOTE: The LAST Photo shows this offering at the TOP Position, shown to give you a visual perspective by comparing this offering to a 6-1/8" Length Stick shown in the bottom position. ONLY the 5-1/2" Length is part of this offering.
As these are new products, some of you might be wondering if they might be useful to you? A fellow ebayer just bought FOUR of this model in the Black Nylon Version but WITH the optional rubber training caps (available in my other listings),...AND a single piece as shown here made from Titanium, but also with the optional rubber training caps.
He gifted the four Nylon pieces to some of his Martial Arts training friends, and this past Wednesday (12-3-15) they worked with them for the first time. He gave me some input as to how the night went and if anyone was hurting! lol I asked his permission to use his feedback from that first night they all used the sticks, and got his OK....
Everyone loves these...Hurts a little here and there...Heard a lot of ohh ouch f... and sh.. Crazy fun making your friends say things they normally wouldn't say. Thank you very much for quality products that do the job and more.....Carry the titanium as my EDC now.
Thanks much, Riz"
truly affordable and practical modern tool for self defense in the
discipline of "Yawarajutsu"!
A secure grip is something that has often been lacking with the also compact Kubotan style sticks, as they most always seem a bit slippery to me In Kubotan sticks such as the well known "Fury", multiple deep finger grooves are often CUT OUT in an attempt to add some security to the all metal grip.
Kubotan sticks are already rather thin, so to cut material away in an attempt to add "grip" is going in the wrong direction. I think what I present here is much better, and initial testing bear that out.
I've also not been a fan of the permanently attached jumble of keys should you ever need to deploy the stick defensively! (Check out my various sized removable key ring carriage "Kubowara™" sticks in my other listings :-)
So,.....I offer instead a basic Kubotan sized Yawara stick shape, but having a VERY comfortable and secure grip with a high coefficient of friction "raised" reinforced rubber central area, that is optimized to the user's hand like no other!
The innovative raised central reinforced rubber grip nestles rather nicely into the small "pocket" created where the fingers meet the hand when it is cupped! The use of this grip design also "mechanically locks" the stick between the first and pinky fingers within a closed fist,....with the middle and ring fingers contributing substantial additional gripping forces.
I have chosen the name "Fist Lock™" to describe these very worthwhile and effective attributes!
I make these up in several lengths, and shown here is a compact 5-1/2" length. I've found this length fits most folks well and still keep within a "compact" size range, .....and with the central reinforced rubber section that allows a firm and comfortable grip for the "average" sized hand. For point of reference in the photos shown above, my own hand measures 3-3/4" across at the widest part and 3-1/4" across at the base of the fingers, .....and is about average I'd think.
The central grip "ends up" about 2" in length once installed. It's so tight going on that it actually compresses about 1/4 of an inch in length! :-) This gives a solid "locked in" GRIP with a great ergonomic "feel" in hand, and in a very compact size for ease and comfort in pocket carry!
However, if your hand is exceptionally small or large, let me know and I can optimize the stick and central grip length that will lock the stick within your closed fist and give an ergonomic fit and feel that simply feels great! Hopefully you'll want to get more training time in,.....and that's always beneficial. :-)
It's tough to describe how solid and
comfortable this feels in several strike positions (EVEN when WET!),.....but I wouldn't have invested so much time
and money into this were it not a significant improvement in the "art"
of Yawara and Kubotan sticks.
I have been working on
this style for some time now, (along with several other defensive stick
designs offered in my other listings :-),.... and have recently
filed for a US Utility
Patent covering the various modes of carriage and methods of
Also, for lots of reasons it makes sense to consider carrying multiple defensive sticks at various locations upon your person, which is what I most often do. You never know when a single stick might be unreachable should you be wrapped up in a particular way without warning, and having various stick types available will help to counter that possibility.
To that end,.....I am offering (in separate listings), various lengths and thicknesses of this
same great Titanium alloy, but with a variety of carriage systems. Please
check back often on my other listings.
Thanks for your consideration.
NOTE: ....PLEASE make sure Yawara and Kubotan style sticks are legal to carry in your Country, State, City, or Town before purchasing. Some areas may have restrictions on such things, and I cannot possibly know about every specific law in every area of the world. :-) Your purchase confirms you have complied with your local laws. Thank You.
