A compact modern rendering of the classic Yawara & Kubotan Style Self Defense Palm Sticks, with an ergonomic & firm Fist-Lock™ grip incorporated into the Patent Pending design! This is my fattest "production" Titanium Rod Yawara Stick, yet still carries discretely in most any pocket.
NOTE: Two of the photos show three sticks, in order to show the 3 thicknesses of Titanium Rod I use. You are buying just ONE stick,...the fattest one shown in both photos.
I consider it my Flagship Model because it does does everything really well, and moving UP in rod diameter allowed me to make use of a higher profile wall thickness central hose component. The grip is amazing!
Designed & Hand Crafted in the USA from 1/2" Diameter ( .50 Caliber! :-) Aerospace Grade 5 Titanium (6AL-4V Alloy). They will last a lifetime & perform like no other!
Your Outer Fingers "Mechanically Lock" & Center The Stick Laterally In the Hand - Inner Fingers Add Substantial Grip...Creating Fist-Lock™! The GRIP Is Absolutely Awesome In that "Cupped Pocket" where your Fingers meet the Hand! (Cup your hand and that pocket will "magically" appear :-)
The next to last photo shows the hand with fingers outstretched, and there is no "cup" presented in the hand. The LAST photo shows the small pocket created once the fingers are bent. Much like a Key Way holding a wheel onto an electric motor shaft, this design forms a "mechanical connection" of the stick to your hand! It has been well received by knowledgeable Martial Arts practitioners and MANY others as creating an outstanding grip! Simple, comfortable, and EFFECTIVE!
The low profile carries comfortably & discretely in any pocket, & is available in 5" to 6-1/2" lengths. (6-1/8" Shown and best seller). Longer 6-1/2" sticks make Wrist & Arm Lock restraining maneuvers easier for Law Enforcement & Security Personal needs, ...but ALL will Strike Hard for Civilian Self Defense Use!
Fat 1/2" Diameter Titanium Rod Yawara Stick With Fist-Lock™
NOTE: Because I have every confidence you will love this item, based on immense Positive Feedback of this design from my customers (Martial Arts Instructors, Law Enforcement, & Military included!), I offer a....
1 Year Money Back Guarantee If Not Delighted!
NOW you have no reason NOT to try one to see what you've been missing! :-)
THIS is my NEW "Heavyweight" version, made in a full .50" Diameter Titanium Rod. ( .50 Caliber! :-) Because of the thicker rod used, I was able to move UP in Grip hose size to 7/16" instead of the 3/8" hose used on my standard weight stick. (the 7/16" & 3/8" dimentions reflects the inner hole size ) The hose is TIGHT going on, and the outer handle wall expands out to create a more "meaty" grip once installed.
Weight of the .50" Diameter 6-1/8" Length stick shown is about 3.5 ounces, which is a bit more than the 2.8 ounce average of my standard weight stick currently made in .447" rod. But it carries very well in pocket, and hits harder because of the wider striking surface and additional weight!
To give you a visual perspective of the relative stick diameters I make, the Next to last photo shows THIS .50" diameter stick at the TOP position, my standard weight .447" diameter stick is in middle position, and my lightweight .375" diameter stick is at the bottom position. The Last Photo shows the extra thickness from the Tip Perspective, as shown on lower right stick. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Made in the USA Built to Last a Lifetime! !!!
By william on May 17, 2016 Verified Purchase on Amazon (regarding standard weight stick made in thinner .447" Dia. Rod)
" In the 15 years I have worked in one aspect or another in law enforcement, I have bought many impact weapons, from tactical pens to mini mag lights, this is one of the most solid and beautifully hand crafted sticks I have owned. A secondary weapon is essential to carry even if you carry a firearm, because in a close quarters situation you may need a weapon to ward off your attacker to give you precious seconds to either escape or deploy your firearm. I carry this stick openly in my hand at times and it does not draw any attention. I will carry it when jogging, ...try doing the same with a knife, ...that may draw a crowd! lol This stick I have owned for about six months, & it still looks like it did the first day I received it, very solid and built to last a lifetime. I love the fact it is made in the USA,... the quality is impeccable. I would really recommend this stick to anyone that is interested. Buy one, your life may depend on it. Thanks and stay safe. "
I believe every Citizen should be carrying "something" with them everyday to defend themselves against an unprovoked attack. The world truly is not what it once was.......and defensive sticks such as I offer are a good starting point for everyone!
A secure grip is something that has often been lacking with the related Yawara and even more compact Kubotan sticks, ...as they most always seem a bit slippery to me. I've also never liked the multiple deep cutaway finger grooves often seen with Kubotans in an attempt to add some security to the grip.
Kubotan sticks are already rather thin, so to cut material away in an attempt to add "grip" is going in the wrong direction. I think what I present here is much better, as initial testing and VERY Positive Customer Feedback bear that out! I've also not been a fan of the permanently attached jumble of keys should you ever need to deploy the stick defensively!
So,.....I offer instead a basic Yawara / Kubotan palm stick shape, but having a VERY comfortable and secure grip with a high coefficient of friction reinforced rubber central area, that is optimized to the user's hand like no other!
I make most of these up in a compact 5-1/2" and 6-1/8"" length that will fit most folks well, with a center gripping area of about 1-7/8 inches long that allows a firm and comfortable grip for the "average" sized hand. However, if your hand is exceptionally small or large, let me know and I can custom fit the grip length to your hand.
The longer 6-1/2 and 7" lengths are easier to execute wrist locks and other restraining maneuvers, such as what Law Enforcement is often called upon to do. For Civilians in a self-defense situation,....where "striking" and pressure point applications are the norm in order to extract youself from a dangerous encounter as quickly as possible,....a shorter stick that's easy to carry discretely will get the job done.
The 1st photo shows a central grip length of about 2 inches, which is my personal stick grip preference and fits the vast majority of folks well. The approximately 1-3/4" length central grip length gives a solid "locked in" GRIP with a great "feel" in hand, and in a very compact size for ease and comfort in pocket carry!
As part of the overall ergonomic design, this grip length will allow the user to effectively "lock" the stick into their closed fist, with about an inch or more of stick exiting the fist on each end, depending on the overall length chosen.
With the inside edge of the first finger wrapped around the rod and butted up against the comfortably tapered top edge of the grip, ....and the inside edge of the forth (pinky) finger wrapped around and butted up against the similarly tapered lower edge of the grip,......the stick is effectively LOCKED in place between both ends of the rubber grip within the closed fist! (as shown in photos 2-5)
It's tough to describe how solid and comfortable this feels in several strike positions,.....and I wouldn't have invested so much time and money into this were it not a significant improvement in the "art" of Yawara and Kubotan sticks.
Additionally, when used defensively, the body's natural reaction is to make an even tighter fist, which serves very well here to "lock" the stick into the fist. Simple Fist-Lock™ at work!
I have been working on this style for some time now, (along with several other defensive stick designs offered in my other listings :-),.... and have recently filed for a US Utility Patent covering the various modes of carriage and methods of construction.
I would not have invested a substantial sum for completing a rather lengthy US Utility Patent Filing had I not believed, (in the world we live in today!) .....that EVERYONE should be carrying at least one defensive stick device, if not more!
For lots of reasons it makes sense to consider carrying multiple defensive sticks at various locations upon your person, which is what I most often do. You never know when a single stick might be unreachable should you be wrapped up in a particular way without warning, and having various stick types available will help to counter that possibility.
ALSO,....PLEASE make sure Yawara and Kubotan style sticks are legal to carry in your Country, State, City, or Town before purchasing. Some areas may have restrictions on such things, and I cannot possibly know about every specific law in every area of the world. :-) Your purchase confirms you have complied with your local laws. Thank You.
