Atually, most of the time, I have a utility knife in my pocket (Stanley Interlock) and a tape measure on my side. The tape measure lends legitimacy to the knife. Plus, I use them both for work all day. In a fight. hold the utility knife like you would a roll of nickels but with the blade sticking out the bottom of your fist. Forget about the blade ... it's just a bonus.
I believe that the best weapon you can possibly have is confidence in yourself and projecting it. I have faced down a group of crack heads (14 of 'em) unarmed, with only my attitude, confidence , and reputation as weapons. They were on my property and I was tired of it.

With a name like "animal" I'd probably scare 'em all away too

Well, I wouldn't say that I "scared 'em away" but that they decided it would not be prudent to press the matter.
Most people around town know me as Butch - not "animal". No, I am NOT female.
On the other hand ... I'm kinda ugly so they might have gotten a little scared.
