Really? Before you trust your life to a 1.5″ blade that costs less than five bucks, consider the following:
- Even Jackie Chan would have a hard time employing a 1.5″ blade for self-defense. Chopsticks? Yes. Lipstick knife? No.
- Double-sided stabbing knives, regardless of length, are often considered ‘daggers’ under state law. This makes these lipstick knives useless and illegal.
- If you have two hands available to open a knife, wouldn’t you rather have a cheap lockback with a 3″ blade? Or anything?
With no disrespect to anyone’s gender identity or clothing preferences, if you’re a dude and you pull a knife like this your attacker is going to laugh his ass off. This might actually be the only useful defensive feature of this ‘knife,’ since it would give you an opportunity to run like hell.
Friends don’t let friends use five-dollar knives. Especially for self-defense.
