    I didn’t know about a sap cap, that’s pretty sneaky! I used to carry a weighted chain that looked just like a long wallet chain back when those were popular. The weights were in my front and back pocket. Nobody ever asked me what it was. You could swing it from the middle and hit with both weights really fast. I like push daggers for self defense too because they are really hard to block or take away. That’s what my girlfriend carried in her purse.

      I forgot about the chains, guys use to carry those all the time. Another old Marine trick use to be pull off your belt and swing the buckle. If you like small knives check out one of these from Ka-Bar. As always, check your local laws so you know what is legal.
