The rain falls softly.
The samurai draws his sword.
Look, an umbrella.
It is a little known fact that Samurai also carried umbrellas. Much as they later had to disguise their swords as canes, so they disguised their umbrellas as swords. In fact, there was one skilled umbrella maker who all the Samurai relied on for their Sword Handle Umbrellas. His name has been buried in the sands of time, but his plans have been preserved. And now, it is with great pleasure that we offer to you, the Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella.

Living in Vancouver, you need to mix it up with your rain shields. Here’s another interesting one, the Rain Drum, which is a stupid name, so we’ll take the suggestion of Geekologie and call it the Drumbrella. http://conbug.com/rain-drum
Pretty simple really, rain hits drum, drum makes sound.
OK, so does anyone see the problem with this idea?
How is this not going to sound like throwing the Tin Man down a flight of stairs?

I give you the Umbuster, for your next walk from the bus stop in front of the porn shop to your worn-out studio apartment on the downtown east side.
This take-no-prisoners umbrella/knuckle duster will also keep the pervs off you on the loser cruiser, but might attract unwanted attention from the soldier of fortune types.
The perfect accessory for the girl on the go, it runs about $300 and features a heavy metal CNC die-cut machined grip perfect for making a good “first impression.”
