And the Grand Prize goes to TATTRAT for the Cajun Napalm idea! I would rather have hot oil splashed on me than this stuff! It clings like glue, and you can't get it off quick enough!! Ouch!!

Knifes and scissors will help, I think. Honestly I wouldn't be in my house in that moment.

I was gonna mention Cajun Napalm, but Tat beat me to it.

I have a 14" hollow-ground carving knife at work. Razor sharp (I know, because I tested it the last time I used it, and now half of my left hand is bald). This thing would probably qualify as a short sword.

As to the original question, I wouldn't have had a moment's hesitation about loosing a little bacon on an intruder. Besides, I cook bacon in a cast iron skillet, which makes an impression "traditional blunt instrument", not to mention it would be hot as heck.

Honestly, I think about safety first and foremost when I'm in a kitchen.

I never ever ever ever ever ever want to make you mad. I will always stay on your happy side. lol. I would personally use an Egg better, the old school ones that you use your hands to spin the blades. That sure could get somethings tied in a knot in a real hurry.

Lets see, if someone were to break into my house i would use a knife or something sharp. I cant guarantee that i would have any hot liquids around.

I would have my 10" chefs knife or my meat cleaver in one hand and my cast iron skillet in my other. The skillet would be a shield as well as a weapon. I think I would do more damage with the 10" chefs knife over the cleaver, but the cleaver might be more intimidating to see.
