Persuader (wood)
Persuader (wood)

I sanded down with my own hands an already dead tree branch to make this little wooden persuader (similar to a kubotan), without using any electric tool.

It's not only a useful self-defense weapon that can be attached to your keys and carry it with you everywhere as a keychain but it can also be used as a stylus pen for resistive screens (won't work in capacitive ones though).

All of my natural items which contain wood, shells and others are made out of living beings already dead. I don't kill living beings since I really love nature very much.
