Designer Weaponry

best made co axes

Available at Best Made Company


I live alone now, so until I have a big, burly dude by my side I have to look out for myself. I keep a billy club by my bed just in case* I ever need to defend myself with more than my flame-throwing mouth. But these dual-purpose beauties are an interesting alternative to ugly weaponry, as they look good AND they would scare the bejesus of any ne'er-do-wells.

*P.S. I knew a kid in high school named JUSTIN CASE. For reals. Hahahhahahahhahaha.

i can totally picture you and your billy club. HAHAHAHA!!!

i have a knife and pepper spray on my bedside and a gun on dave's bedside so i'm feeling pretty protected. however that pink ax is calling my name :)

Marjorie said...

Hubs keeps a baseball bat on his side and I have a vintage knife (WW era perhaps?) tucked between the mattress and box spring on my side. The knife is so old and dull that I'd be better off clubbing someone with it than trying to stab them. Lol. It makes me feel more secure though!

Marjorie said...

Oh, and by the way, I see your designer axe and raise you one cleverly concealed tampon stun gun!

these are some good looking tools!

Caroline said...

Shaweet!

Keith said...

These are awesome. So if they ever wanted to make a fashionable Friday the 13th movie Jason could use one of these.

The Peach Tart said...

Very stylish. Much more so than the 18 inch steel flashlight I have beside my bed.

diane said...

They're cool, and you can chop wood with them too.
Keeping a scary looking weapon around when you're alone is a good idea. You want any intruder to know immediately that you intend on f*cking them up if they don't run away.

Liz said...

Dang those are pretty sweet. And LOL @ the guy you knew in high school. That's like the kid I knew named Stu Pidassle. SRSLY. I don't know why his parents would do that to him.

Jake Hammell said...

$250 for axe?! Not in this lifetime. You could buy 5 4lb splitting axes and a mean looking hatchet to match for that much. If you're going for home defense, you should swing for the fences and get a shotgun. Go hard or go home right?

Alina said...

AXtually. I love them. I can see them as art in a lady loggers home. :)

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Ohhhh, pretty!! So I would look good while axing hubby!!

DesBisoux said...

well...that'll be a pink axe for me as well, please! can i have a big bow around it and have it deliver by some hottie??
thank you!

The Seeker said...

Better than axe just a stylish axe.... lol
Oh I love the Justin Case name.... I'm still laughing

Luv

Lianne said...

We have a guard dog. Ok, she doesn't do anything except growl while lying on my pillow hiding behind me. So I guess I have the boyfriend, but he never hears anything so usually I'm the one getting up to investigate strange noises while the boyfriend and the dog hide in the bedroom. I think I'm gonna get me an ax.

Melanie's Randomness said...

I'm glad to see that they have thought of a woman's perspective here. hehe. My mom keeps a metal bat by her bed so i completely understand. =)

btw I love the Metalocalypse rocking pic on the side!!

Diana said...

I'm all for self defense!! I think this would look cool hanging up or under your pillow *justincase*

Adele said...

NIIICEEEE. I think I'm going to ask Ian to get me one of those for christmas (; xx

Kristin said...

Self defense for the chic single girl. I LOVE IT!

Phoenix said...

Cute! I'm all for killing people in style. However, I'm also super-wary of weapons that, if the guy is stronger (and let's face it, with me he would be) he could take that weapon and use it against me. I think this is why I like subtle weapons that take skill to learn so some burglar idiot can't just use it against me with no mad ninja skillz like I have.

PS I knew a Crystal Shanda Leer in high school.

She never heard the end of it.

Hanako66 said...

hahahahahah

can you imagine if you were a thief and you saw someone coming at you with a PRETTY axe? lol i'd hightail it out of there...

Savvy Gal said...

a gal can defend herself in style then....

Char said...

as long as you didn't have anyone called Mike Hunt

the eternal list said...

signed,
big burly dude

Brown Girl said...

Sweet. I have a big burly dude to defend me but you never know, I may one day need to defend him, sometimes he acts like a pansy. Just sayin.

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

I decorate my shillaly with Scooby Doo stickers and glitter.

TERI REES WANG said...

Maybe you can carry that pretty little ax around with you every where.
Pull it out of your precious Prada purse and introduce it has...
your new, "Justin Case".

You could share tea at the cafe together and people watch.

Iva said...

LOL!!! I see Christmas gifts to the ladies written all over these ;)

JUSTIN CASE!!! teehee!! so funny, and kinda awesome too...I wonder if his parents thought that through!

Toothfairy said...

give me one of those please... so I can hit boyfriend with it, when he's annoying haha!

*loves*

Clorivak said...

I've never even thought of having a weapon handy at all..geez, I should probably get something. Or learn some crazy martial arts or something.

A teacher I had in elementary school was named "Pix Butt"....I SWEAR to GOD!!! Poor,poor lady!!! bahahaha..

Down and Out Chic said...

my favorite is the first one, it has a vintage feel to it. hehe.
you DID NOT know a boy named Justin Case? OMG, that shit should illegal (or something).

Diane said...

i had a gym teacher in high school named richard weed lmao!

so... it's so awesome that i'm in the middle of a nervous breakdown and you show me pretty weapons!! har! :P

Elizabeth Marie said...

Omg...this is going on my xmas list. I gotta protect myself, Gabby and Bella! HA.

Kellie said...

I would totally sleep next to one of those! When the hubs is out of town for work I sleep next to a double edged knife. It's huge. It's sharp. It's scary. I'm paranoid. :)

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oooh, very stylish! They should create an entire set, with a matching switchblade and a taser! I've always wanted a samurai sword for that purpose, but I still haven't quite figured out how to get one from Asia through customs over here... ;-)

Gabby said...

I have a baseball bat under my bed and also live with a very crazy chihuahua. But neither of those things come in different colors...hmmm.

kys said...

Good thing I don't have any of those perdy weapons at my house right now. I'm pretty irritated.

Chessa! said...

eek!!

blueviolet said...

Those make me think of croquet!

Alicia (The Red Deer) said...

Very pretty :)

Oh and I just noticed on your profile that you are a leo and a dog! Me too - aren't we just totally awesome?

Improbable Joe said...

"Justin Case" is the name on my first aid kit!

Jessica said...

First if I saw a hitchhiker with an axe as pretty as these I would totally stop and pick him up. lol

Second I feel so bad for Justin how much did his parents hate him. Wow

Third the comment you left on my blog is so funny, a romance with the UPS guy haha. Hell no. A bald skinny man in little brown short or my boyfriend who can go for 2 hours without even trying.
Um yeah no contest.

Felicia said...

Justin Case????? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! My friend went to HS with a girl named Amanda Poppendick! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

amy @ switz~art said...

shite! i only have a baseball bat! i need me one of these!

justin case?! hilariousness! i went to high school with a Honey Sweet and Mike Hunt. Mike Hunt was good at track & field, so you can imagine how the announcements over the loudspeaker went over!

Oh, and I worked with an Anita Beaton. All true.

Constructive Attitude said...

LOL. those are awesome. what color is your billy club?

Miss Sofia said...

Hahaha, Justin Case is a ridiculously hilarious name. Hahahahaha.
Thank you for recommending Primus (and Les Claypool), I'll definitely check it out. Also, I would love to hear your book recommendations, I'm always up for new reading material. ^^

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

A designed axe...what will they think of next? Love the new look!!!

Kaz said...

I see there are 6 of them

Because on the 7th day, she rested

alissa said...

ooo i want one of these in every color haha. accent your outfit everyday...

i cannot believe you knew someone named justin case. did they know what they were doing when they named him that?

E said...

Perfect accessory for Halloween! Damned if I didn't need one of these last time my kids were "trapped" I the bathroom and need to playfully chop them out and quaintly surprise them with "Here's Johnny!"

Brooke said...

These sure do look a lot cuter than the bear spray we've all been carrying around Montana for 4 days. Hahaha.

Alicia said...

ohhhh forget small dogs, i'm thinking coordinating axes are the last fashion accessory!! those are friggin awesome!

lancelonie said...

Awesome axes! But hope no chic girl will carry that around. LOL! :) Maybe, on a Halloween night scare . . . "just in case"... ;)

Ela said...

Justin Case??? I die. Man, parents are mean.

LOL at the ugly weaponry...I never thought to pretty up weaponry of any sort. And good thinking on the billy club, drolly - you can never be to careful.

...love Maegan said...

I'm so in love with these.

Fashion Court said...

carina said...

Apt. #34 said...

The perfect stocking stuffer!

Exchange Server Support Miami said...

Pretty, but I'll stick with my baseball bat that's been protecting my sleep from under the bed for the past six years.
