Sword Handled Umbrellas

Unless there’s a line of studded raincoats I’m unaware of wet weather safeguards and weapons are usually mutually exclusive objects. To rectify that situation Bruce and Stephanie Tharp of Materious designed “Umbrellas for the Civil but Discontent Man”.

They say: “Sigmund Freud contends that aggressiveness is a fundamental human instinct whose inhibition is a necessary obligation of social life. These umbrellas combine a symbol of gentlemanly refinement–the full-sized, black umbrella–with an element from more manly sword-bearing times. The umbrellas offer brief psychological respite from the dictates of social amiability.”

We say: One step closer to living out our “urban ninja” fantasies.
