What's a Wedgie?
Well, the traditional definition involves a dastardly deed in which the unlucky recipient has their underpants grabbed from behind and forceably pulled up their butt crack. Unpleasant to be sure. But I decided that it would be a great name for a new tool....
The Wedgie is what I call a "Kubatool". It measures 5 inches long by well over 1/4" thick and is made of the super tough CPM 3V steel. It is configurable, that is you can take the cord wrap off and make it into a koppo stick or use it bare. There are 5 evenly spaced holes drilled in the tool so you can cord wrap or tie finger loops in several different ways. The tool could go on your keyring or in your pocket and comes standard with a protective piece of tubing slipped over the end to keep it pocket friendly. I will also be making optional kydex sheaths for them for neck or belt carry. Can be used as a kubaton, a koppo stick or my personal favorite which is prytool, chisel or wedge.
There have been many other kubatons on the market before but I think this one is rather unique. Definitely puts the phrase "giving a Wedgie" in a whole new light. :) Will have the first batch available in a couple of weeks.
