Struggling with a gift idea for your femme identifying friends and family? Non binary and gender variant persons are assaulted at a much higher rate and even more so for “femme” presenting people. Protection in the immediate sense looks like having resources at your fingertips …literally. These keychains are thoughtful and appropriate without the need to put too much thought into the gesture.
?So what exactly is a Kubotan?
The kubotan was first made for use by the Los Angeles Police Department. Kubota based the design on the “hashi” stick, which Kubota’s father had invented. Small stick weapons of this type have been used in martial arts for centuries. The Japanese Yawara is a similar type of weapon. Kubotans are used by many police forces and by military personnel, but now you can repurpose this item for your own protection.
