What: The Umbuster
Why: Don't you ever feel the need to whack the you know what out of someone with the brass knuckles attached to the shaft of your umbrella? No? You don't even have brass knuckles attached to the shaft of your umbrella? Well, then it's high time you start protecting yourself and your posse with the Umbuster. This utterly frightening contraption has actually been dubbed a class 5 weapon in parts of Australia, and is not available in stores. Which is kind of a shame, because although seeing it on someone else would scare me silly, carrying one around myself would make me feel like one no-frills, bad-ass fashionista. Of course, I could always opt for the oh-so-classy brass knuckle clutch instead if I were really jonesing for a trendy street weapon accessory.
I think for now though, I'll stick to my sophisticated and practical Gustbuster. It might not have street smarts, but this baby has the brainpower to outwit its way through any sticky situation – no brass required.
