Blast Knuckles: for the woman on the go who needs that extra sense of security

blast-knuckles2.jpgNow here's something you don't see every day: 950,000 volts of stun power at your fingertips, in the shape of brass knuckles.

With this gadget, you can protect yourself without having to lug around pepper spray or a taser - with the added benefit of looking like a total badass.

Blast Knuckles would be great for your glove box, to wear as you walk through the parking lot or garage at night, or while you're running on the trail. And they're not messing around; the 950,000 volts they're packing will incapacitate anyone for five to ten minutes, and because you wear them on your hand, an assailant can't take them from you.

They're available from several retailers, including this one, for about $50, but you'll need to check to see if they're legal where you live. That's right: they're so tough, they're not even legal in all fifty states.

I predict that anyone who's willing to wear these as they stride through the wide world probably isn't in danger of being attacked anyway, but it's nice to have almost a million volts of insurance, just in case.
