I have seen one of these in some of the gun mags, but can't remember what they are called or find it on google. I'm trying to show my friends and they think I'm crazy...

It is a pen sized hypodermic needle and advertized as a last resort for military and law enforcement.

Please help me out! Thanks.

I've seen novelty pens that look like a hypodermic needle. There are also metal defensive type pens that can be used as a hand weapon.

Are one of these what you are talking about?

Kind of the second one. It's a surgical steel, hypodermic needle that is roughly the size and width of a pen.

You might try Cold Steel's web site. They have a lot of different types of "novelty" oddball weapons.

Are you talking about a spring loaded window breaker... maybe?

They advertised it as a last resort weapon for LEOs and .mil. You stab it into your attackers artery and it spills massive volumes of blood.

A guy on another site made one, looks like this but a little shorter, and they have ads in gun magazines.

I swear I'm not crazy!!

Doesn't seem very practical. The odds of you getting one of your attacker's arteries in a full on fight isn't stellar. A double-edged dagger of approx the same length would be handier. Those look like livestock needles, you could one for a few bucks at your local co-op/ tsc/ etc.

I believe what you are looking for is called the inner city defense pen is a spring loaded needle shaped defense pen.

I think that's the latest DNA collection device.

GG&G has this but I'm not a fan of them so caveat emptor.

I've seen a home made version made from 1/2 inch electrical conduit about 18 inches long, half of which was ground away to form the "blade" portion.

WINNER!! You just won 13 and a half internets!

I'm not looking to buy one, I was talking with a few of my friends about different edged weapons and I was telling them about this and they had never seen it and I couldn't find a real picture. Then it turned into finding it on principle.

Thanks guys.

That thing looks like its primary purpose is to penetrate wallets.

I've seen a flash hider with one of those on the end to puncture tires. Seemed like a GREAT idea...

That seems like a better idea than the Glock recoil spring window punch - "Extreme tactical use"

This doesn't even belong in "Blades". Put it in "Ninja Zombie"

Any kniofe will do that shit with a simple twist. Horrifying to think about really.

Silly me! I thought that you were talking about that knife with the CO2 cartridge in the handle, that would inject CO2 into a stab wound.

I don't even know if they still make that one or not.

Ya, I know that one, I think it's called the stinger. In my searches last night I saw a few of those for sale...

The actual name is a trocar. It is part of a medical device usually coupled with a three edged blade to cut. Google it. They make nasty stabbing weapons. I am not sure about the GG&G or whatever. The GG&G looks like a copy of my vampire drinking straw I have made for years of carbon fiber except the blade angle is off.
