London, Sept 16 (ANI): An unbreakable umbrella, worth 125 pounds, has been created which can protect against rain and muggers.
Made of hi-tech steel, the designers of Unbreakable Umbrella claim their invention can support the weight of a man and can be wielded like a baseball bat, reports The Telegraph.
Makers Real Self-Defense say their brolly is as strong as a steel pipe despite weighing only 775g.
According to the makers, the invention is perfect for use as a self-defence weapon, particularly when combined with knowledge of martial arts training such as Kendo, a Japanese style of fencing.
A spokesman for Real Self-Defence, based in Vermont, USA, said: "Our Unbreakable Umbrella has no unusual parts, no more metal than an average umbrella, it does not arouse suspicion, can be carried legally everywhere where any weapons are prohibited.
"Anyone who can use a stick for defence can use this umbrella. Do you know how to swing a baseball bat? Do you know how to strike with a sturdy stick? If you do, you know all you need to know."
The Unbreakable Umbrella is available to buy in the UK from Tactical Things in Colchester, Essex, with a straight or curved handle. (ANI)
