The Persuader Key Holder

The concept of using a small, one handed instrument for self-defense purposes is certainly not a new one.  For centuries, Oriental women were taught to quickly close their fans and deal with an assailant by striking out at various vulnerable areas of the body.
Clenching the hand into a fist and encircling the fan with a tight grip, while leaving an even distribution of the fan protruding from both sides of the hand allowed the defender to deliver hard, devastating blows with the fan’s hard ends.
