I’ve been a fan of kubotans and I really like their portability and simplicity. This is a nice weapon to carry around while on the street without attracting too much attention.

You can also use a different size of screw depending on your needs. And don’t forget to wrap your screw with tape to make the edges smooth before wrapping it with paracord.

This kubotan is very discreet due to the fact that it is wrapped nicely with paracords. And best of all its cheap.


If you don’t have a paracord yet, you can visit theĀ Paracord Supplies section and you can purchase your paracords from there.

    It depends on the bolt or screw but you can make a same kind of keychain without the screw and you need about two arms length.
