What would be your first choice of hand tool to defend yourself with? I'm thinking a Halligan like pic related.
>>48424360framing hammer or a hatchetThe 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 on2) 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 direction3) 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.

>>48424414Yeah, 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.

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
