Defenders fan designed the RP Defender [IN BLACK ONLY]. He purchased all the tools, then went through the features he liked and then mashed them up. We were also looking to make a Defender that would fit in a pants pocket, which filled our design criteria.
We struck a deal with the designer, and off we went into production. This tool is unique, and pain comes from every part of it! So as a great addition to the self-defense gadgets, we are really pleased with our success stories coming back from our Defender owners.
Peel the cover off your Self-defense gadget!
This is our newest Defender (self-defense tool). It fits in your pocket (4″ long and 2.5″ wide) and can travel anywhere with you. It also has a set of lanyard holes to use a standard lanyard or even the NEW Kydex Holsters or Neck Rigs.
This is a “mash-up” sent to me by Robert Pearson, a Defender fan and an owner of copy number one of this new and exciting Defender. One comment we heard lots was, “why not a defender that fits in your pocket” Well, Robert, on his own, came up with a “slightly larger” than credit card size version, fits in your hand well and in your pocket!
This is an excellent tool for your home self-defense, personal safety, and self-protection.
I had a fan contact me about a possible new design for a self-defense weapon. He and his father like to “mash” things up. So they went through the various designs at the time and came up with this. The RP was born from some of their thoughts on the best features of the other defenders.
The RP defender fits in your hand much like if you held a credit card in your hand. We have long wanted a smaller, fit in your hand Defender, which was fully featured, and this is it! It has curved two points in the front, which are great to attack the stomach, neck, or arms. Push and twist!!! Ouch! Also, the smooth back end fits against the palm of your hand, and the other sharp point is outside your grasp so that you can do great downward poking to the head or hands. It also has a “saw-tooth” soft tissue capture area, as we saw first on the Defender 2. It’s a tremendous little self-defense weapon that fits in the palm of your hand! Finally, it has a digit capture hole and lanyard holes so you can carry it with a lanyard. In our standard training video, the RP can be used much like all the other self-defense weapons.
The RP with a clip has a few issues. First, the clip covers part of the digit capture hole. This can be fine if you place the clip up to fit in your pocket and leave the digit capture hole clear. We would place the clip in one of the two holes at the end for the breakaway lanyard. You can still attach a breakaway lanyard in the single remaining hole. But with all that said, you might want a clip because it’s so nice and easy to carry.
