I got a *very* cool present this holiday season: an "unbreakable" umbrella.
For those of us with various weapons training, anything we happen to have in hand we think of as a weapon, at least under the right circumstances. Umbrellas -- kind of obvious that way. Except, of course, that most of them are kind flimsy. To quote one reviewer, "Whacking someone with a regular cheap umbrella will leave a welt and a very angry opponent, and the umbrella will be destroyed."
Not so this one. Heck, you can stand on it. In this video a fellow does just that before cutting in half a watermelon.
Because, you know, sometimes you don't have a knife handy. Ha ha.
No, seriously, this is tres cool. A quality umbrella -- that solid *thup* sound it makes when opening -- which, should you need to whack a watermelon (or punching bag) really hard can stand up to the task.
Lifetime warranty, of course.
My lifetime. Natch.
