Battle Beetle by Alpha Outpost and Readyman

The Battle Beetle was designed by the hostage survival experts at Readyman. They created a "bike tool" that you can attach to your key chain for simple uses like a bottle opener, screw-driver, wrench, etc. But the fun part is when you really have to use it as a weapon. It has been carefully designed to be used as a striking tool. This hard piece of metal can cause some serious quick damage.
