What would be your first choice of hand tool to defend yourself with? I'm thinking a Halligan like pic related.

framing hammer or a hatchet

The halligan has a few problems for being used as a weapon, IMHO:
1) the handle is too small diameter to get a comfortable swinging grip on
2) the handle is round rather than oval-shaped, this makes it hard to orient the striking end towards your opponent. Note how an axe or a hammer handle is oval so it naturally positions itself in your hand so the head or the blade points in the right direction
3) it has two heads at a 90-degree angle to each other. If you're trying to hit someone with the pick then the flat blade is awkwardly in the way, and vice-versa.

Yeah, that makes sense but they tend to wreck just about anything you whack with them. Even if the initial point of impact wasn't one of the picks I still think it would probably ruin your whole day.

Tire bumper
Jack handle
Pry bar
Large wrench.
Basically whatever is at hand that is sharp, long, or heavy.

can't argue with results

Hardened with enough mass and leverage on 8" or ideally 12" to collapse a lung or punch a hole in a skull - Sharp enough that even a close call still cuts flesh more than a little
