Self defense is serious business, and sometimes even the smallest most discrete weapon can do severe damage to your attacker. Such is the case with the kubaton. The kubotan looks like an ordinary keychain, but in fact, it is a machined aluminum protection device. Kubotans are great for jabbing, pressure points, key slashing and eye gouging. Whatever it takes to ward off the attacker. They are inexpensive and virtually indestructible. Kubotans are great for men as well as women.
