    I had 17500 thanks, more than anyone else and this is because I'm kind, considerate, helpful and the man all men want to be.

    Now I have none.

    Guys....I would like to add something...
    Many countries allow to carry legal weapons for self protection...In those countries anyone may carry a pistol,gun...but with license and permit...
    And most of countries do not allow to carry weapons...In those countries there are some other which can be carried for self defense.... here i have something which is legal and easy to use for self defense...
    Blitz Sport Kubotan Key Ring
    it costs about 6 Uk pounds....

    It is situationally dependent on legality to be honest - over the years it has been viewed more sternly because it is not "just a keyring" anymore because the advertising hype for kubotans was always as a weapon of defense (ergo "made" on the offensive weapon scale) - the grey area was around the main function. If it spent most of it's time carrying keys was it still a weapon?

    It's not cut and dry, but to be honest it's also an overrated tool and a solid flashlight (maglite or similar) is every bit as good and far easier to articulate

    This is where my query came in - I have been informed that it is illegal to carry, (and had it confiscated) regardless of whether or not I had keys attached. I have also been told that it is fine to carry, so long as you make sure that there are keys attached and that you will have a use for those keys whilst you are out... Both times the information came from police personnel.

    I have also spoken with a few doormen/women, and security personnel, who say that they are big no no, but that obviously had nothing to do with the legalities of it...

    a Maglite is something that we'd always recommend now too, in favour of an actual Kubotan.
