I have an immersion blender that has a wicked sharp blade on the business end. Assuming the attacker was male, I think if I parried low to just the right spot, I could have him on his knees in a heartbeat! I think the injury would also make him very identifiable at the ER.

If you guys want to be serious then kitchen sheers. Good grip and great for a double eye punch that renders the enemy worthless. Once the eyes are gone, the enemy is done.

You're right Keltin, kitchen shears are a formidable weapon and a favorite of mine. However, another thread you just contributed to has gotten me thinking about hot liquids as a weapon. I think that good pouring skills would come in handy when attempting to thwart an oncoming attacker with hot liquids. Also, no tedious ladling required! lol

I’m with you on that!

But, for a quick dispatch, use an overhand grip on a bird beak paring knife across the eyes. Blind that fool in one slash, then upstroke for a jugular hit. Swish-swish, two moves, and he is done!

An now we can get back to the music and jam while we wait on CSI to gather the body!

True, Keltin, but you are probably a very tall man (and I'm sure dark and handsome). For more petite females, hot liquids might even the playing field a little. Perhaps hot liquids to the eyes?

Hot grits or liquids, even oils are VERY dangerous. I keep my distance!!!!

In fact, from what I’ve heard, hot grits are THE thing to make an impression when you decide to “physically train” your mate!
