My grandmother, rest her soul, used to use them but I don't think I've even seen one for decades...... many Steampunk women like to wear Victorian-style hats so if you can find one she might know.

But almost anything can be used as a weapon if applied with sufficient force to a vulnerable spot - eyes, throat, ...... and other places  :-[ :-[ .... A key, a comb, a rolled-up newspaper or magazine, body parts such as elbows and fingers - but we're surely not planning to do serious injury to some poor misbegotten soul whose only offence is trying to save us for Christ?? In a public place simply yelling "Hey! Get away from me! Stop groping me!" at the top of your voice should be sufficient.

The best use of a hatpin I EVER saw was Maureen O'Hara in McClintock!

Hat pins are still being made and used. I almost bought one not long ago.

(at least in the middleofnowhere, Pennsylvania.  people here have a knife on them everywhere you go excluding school, and other obvious places. i personally carry a box cutter from time to time, for utility purposes (and my anxiety, it just makes my little worry some mind more secure).)

the obvious "omg its unsafe for a teenager to have a knife" aren't needed because i know but you would be stereotyping because im not some idiot teen who is gonna mess around with knifes and just carry it nonchalantly through school.i understand that its only for utility/emergencies. i might just make a post about this in kiva so i can go more in depth but this wasnt intended to be a long ranting reply but it happened. Thanks  ;D

When I was a kid, from about age 9 or 10 onwards, I always carried a folding pocket knife, even at school; we all did. We used them for cutting string, carving bits of wood, splitting twigs for a campfire, carving our initials on trees and walls (I know, I know, any kid doing that nowadays would get arrested for vandalism, but times were different in the 1950s). I don't recall anyone ever getting hurt with one. We never thought of them as weapons, merely tools.

And I've carried one just about ever since. Working, as I did, as a sailing instructor and in boat maintenance and delivery, in mineral exploration and prospecting, and in boatbuilding and woodworking shops, you won't get far without a good sharp knife. The only times I don't carry a knife on my belt is if I'm flying on a commercial aircraft. My present general purpose knife is a heavy Schrade Uncle Henry locking folder which I bought in truly appalling condition at a backyard sale in, of all places, Mexico some years ago for some ridiculous price like 15 Pesos (about  $1.20). Badly rusted, the brass parts green with corrosion, the folding and locking mechanism immovable; refurbished, it's a first-rate cutting tool and I never leave the house without it. I've seen Uncle Henry's of similar vintage for sale on Ebay for upwards of $60. Got myself a bargain, I think.

Here in Canada it's perfectly legal, at the moment; it probably wouldn't be in Britain, and in a few other countries also. I must confess I have a real hard time understanding restrictive laws of that type. The current political philosophy seems to be total DEregulation for big corporations, and more and more and yet more rules and regulations for the common riffraff like the rest of us.....  Must be that New World Order we keep hearing about ...... though I must say I strongly suspect it's really the Old World Order trying to drag us all back to the Dark Ages.
