This is the best constructed umbrella I have ever seen. From the handle down to the rounded metal tip end. The shaft and ribs are fiberglass and are unbelievable strong and sturdy both for protection from weather and offenders. The size is perfect for men and women and the hard wood handle is effective with just a tap. It opens easily with The push of the button and enough force it startled my dog enough that he ran into the other room. Finally an umbrella that will last year's and serve as a civil form of protection to carry anywhere. The delivery was quick and updated throughout shipping.

These "tactical" Security Umbrellas are sturdy, flexible and very functional. These are very functional as a weapon of self defense. You can defend and attack. The tip is reinforced, the handle has a knob and the main body can take the force of a person standing on it. The Knob is great for Punyo strikes and manipulation. The tip is solid and great for thrusting. You can also Slash effectively. This is an all around effective tool for offense and defense.
I received a Black Security Umbrella "City-Safe" with Knob Handle (which is the smaller version) and the
Black Security Umbrella with Knob samples to review and I have to say I'm impressed.
One benefit is that you can take these on Airplanes and other secure areas where traditional weapons may not be allowed. This is a great tool for security and personal protection professionals.
As a Kali practicioner I would say the smaller "City-Safe" is my preference as it's closer in movement and size to a larger Rattan stick. The larger version almost requires two hands a majority of the time or a higher grip to hold.
They are well worth the price if you can afford them and are looking for a top quality legal security option.
