Layaway Information

Layaway Policies

We offer a layaway plan on select products so you may pay for your order over a period of 60 days. Products that are eligible for layaway will show "Layaway Available: Yes" on the product page.

Here's how it works:

The total amount of the order excluding shipping, tax, or fees is divided into three (3) equal payments. The first payment is due with the order, the second payment is due 30 days later, and the final payment is due 60 days after the order.

There is a $15 non-refundable fee for layaway orders. This fee is added to the first payment along with the shipping and any tax. The first payment is made when the order is placed.

Example: Your order total is $300 plus $12.75 shipping and handling. If you select the layaway option, your payments would be:

  • $127.75 (1/3 of purchase = $100 + $15 layaway fee + $12.75 shipping)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)

If your initial payment is made by credit card, we will automatically process the 2nd and 3rd payments at the appropriate time using the same credit card information. You will be reminded via email that a payment will be charged. If you need to change this for any reason, please contact us.

For payments made other than credit card, payment must be received within seven (7) days of the due date or the order is subject to cancellation. You will receive a reminder via email that a payment is due.

United States Patent 1191 Rogers 1 Feb. 11, 1975 SURVIVAL HAND WEAPON [76] Inventor: Dale R. Rogers, 2647 Flamingo Dr.,

Fayetteville, NC. 28306 [22] Filed: Dec. 19, 1973 [211 App]. No.2 426,258

3,780,393 12/1973 Gaetke 15/236 R X Primary ExaminerRichard J. Apley Attorney, Agent, or Firm-Mills and Coats 1 1 ABSTRACT The present invention relates to a survival hand weapon comprising an elongated blade having a cutting edge beveled on one edge thereof, a finger receiving portion including a plurality of finger openings extending from an edge of said cutting blade opposite the beveled cutting edge, and a palm rest extending from said finger receiving portion and engageable with the palm of the users hand whereby said palm rest tends to absorb the shock associated with a particular blow and to transfer the shock to the palm of the users hand.

1 Claim, 3 Drawing Figures SURVIVAL HAND WEAPON The present invention relates to weapons, and more particularly to hand weapons adapted to be carried and supported by the user's hand.

Hand weapons of various types have long been effectively used in certain combat, self-defensive and general survival situations. Such hand weapons lend themselves to close-in" fighting and are particularly effected in face-to-face confrontations where firearms are not available or cannot be safely used without subjecting bystanders or comrades to unreasonable risk.

The present invention relates to a survival hand weapon of the nonfirearm type comprising an elongated blade having a beveled cutting edge formed along the forward edge thereof, a plurality of finger receiving openings extending from the edge of the elongated blade opposite the cutting edge for receiving a plurality of fingers from the users hand, and a palm rest extending fromthe plurality of finger openings for extending between the fingers and the palm of the users hand which acts to transfer the shock associated with a particular blow to the palm of the users hand.

Therefore, it is seen that the hand weapon of the present invention is designed to fit the users hand by allowing the fingers of the user to extend through the finger openings of the hand weapon between the elongated blade and the palm rest. When properly placed on the hand, the finger openings rest adjacent the knuckle line of the hand and the forward portions of the finger bend back to engage the palm rest and hold it tightly adjacent the palm of the hand. This tends to align the blade such that it liesin a plane generally perpendicular to the plane of the finger portions extending through the finger openings.

Thus when used the .hand survival weapon of the present invention can be'used in conjunction with other types of hand weapons and can compliment other forms of combat or self-defensive such as karate.

It is, therefore, an object of the present invention to provide a hand weapon that can be carried and supported by the hand and which will be effective in combat, self-defense and other general survival situations.

A further object of the present invention is to provide a knife type hand weapon including a plurality of finger openings for receiving the fingers of the users hand, and a palm rest extending from the plurality of finger openings for engagement with the palm in order that the shock associated with a particular blow is transferred by the palm rest to the palm of the hand.

A still further object of the present invention is to provide a sharp cutting hand weapon that is adapted to fit a users hand such that the fingers of the user's hand can be inserted through the plurality of finger openings and locked therearound to assure that the hand weapon will be naturally retained in the hand while being used in a combat or self-defense survival situation.

Otherobjects and advantages of the present invention will become apparent and obvious from a study of the following description and the accompanying drawings which are merely illustrative of the present invention.

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. I is a side elevational view of the survival hand weapon of the present invention;

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the survival hand weapon as held in the hand of an individual;

FIG. 3 is a front elevational view of the survival hand weapon of the present invention illustrating the relationship of the weapon tothe portion of the hand shown.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT With further reference to the drawings, particularly FIG. I, the hand survival weapon of the present invention is shown therein and indicated generally by the numeral 10. Referring to the hand survival weapon 10 in greater detail it is seen that the same comprises an elongated blade 12 which is preferably tapered towards the front edge thereof (the forward direction being the direction toward the right of the hand survival weapon as viewed in FIG. 1). The forward edge of the elongated blade 12 is beveled to form a cutting edge 14 that extends generally the entire length of the hand survival weapon 10.

Extending from the rear side of the blade 12 or the edge opposite the cutting edge 14 is a finger receiving portion 16. Finger receiving portion 16 includes a plurality of openings for receiving the fingers of the hand of the user. More specifically, the plurality of finger openings includes a little finger opening 18, a ring finger opening 20, a middle finger opening 22, and a forefinger opening 24.

As seen in the drawings, the ring finger opening 20 and middle finger opening 22 are slightly spaced closer to the blade 12 or cutting edge 14 than the little finger opening I8 and the forefinger opening 24. In fact, as illustrated in the drawings, it is seen that this particular spacing arrangement results in the center points of the various finger openings lying generally on an arcuate path AP. This particular arrangement of the finger openings 18, 20, 22 and 24 allow the hand weapon 10 to be more comfortably held and also allows the same to conform to the shape of the hand and particularly the position of the fingers.

Extending fron the finger receiving portion 16 on the side opposite the blade 12 is a palm rest 26, the palm rest being aligned with the finger receiving portion 16 and the blade 12 to form a generally co-planar structure. Viewing the palm rest 26 in greater detail, it is seen that such basically comprises a single piece member 28a extending from outer portions of the finger receiving portion 16 with the single piece member being spaced rearwardly of the finger openings 18, 20, 22 and 24 and thusly defining an opening 28 therebetween.

To utilize the hand weapon 10 of the present invention, the respective fingers of the users hand are inserted through the appropriate openings 18, 20, 22 and 24 of the finger receiving portion 16. The entire hand weapon 10 is moved laterally along the fingers to where the finger portion 16 extends between the users knuckles and the middle joints of the fingers, as illustrated in FIG. 3. Once the hand weapon 10 is positioned in this position, the end portions of the fingers are wrapped back toward the palm and engage the palm rest, pushing the same tightly adjacent the palm. In this position, the hand weapon 10 is securely held in the hand and will not tend to drop or be separated thereform under normal circumstances.

Also, it is seen that the palm rest 26 engages the palm of the users hand and in the case of a blow being struck with the hand weapon 10, the shock associated therewith is transferred to the palm of the hand by the palm rest 26 and particularly the single piece rearmost member 26a.

Therefore, from the foregoing, it is apparent that the present invention presents a hand weapon that is effective in combat, self-defense and other survival situations. Moreover, the design of the hand weapon 10 is such that the gripping thereof inherently results in a grip that makes it quite difficult for the hand weapon to be separated from the user. Also, a further advantage of the hand weapon 10 of the present invention lies in the fact that in a combat or self-defense situation, the weapon is an integral part of the fist and follows the path thereof as the arms are swung or punched at an aggressor.

The terms upper," lower, forward," rearward, etc., have been used herein merely for the convenience of the foregoing specification and in the appended claims to describe the survival hand weapon and its parts as oriented in the drawings. It is to be understood, however, that these terms are in no way limiting to the invention since the survival hand weapon may obviously be disposed in many different positions when in actual use.

The present invention, of course, may be carried out in other specific ways than those herein set forth without departing from the spirit-and essential characteristics of the invention. The present embodiments are, therefore, to be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive and all changes coming within the meaning and equivalency range are intended to be embraced herein.

What is claimed is:

l. A single piece survival hand weapon comprising: a stiff elongated blade portion having a sharp cutting edge beveled along an edge thereof; a finger receiving portion extending from the edge of said elongated blade opposite said cutting edge and having a plurality of side-by-side disposed integral finger openings formed therein including a little finger opening, a ring finger opening, a middle finger opening and a forefinger opening and wherein said ring and middle finger openings are spaced slightly forward of said little and forefinger openings whereby the respective centers of the finger openings lie in a general arcuate path which enables the hand weapon to be confortably held; and a palm rest means extending from said finger receiving portion and being so configured and so sized so as to be engaged bythe palm of the user's hand when said hand weapon is hand held for absorbing the shock of a particular blow and transferring the shock to the palm of the users hand, said palm rest means comprising a single piece member extending from the little and forefinger openings and spaced rearwardly of said ring and middle finger openings so as to form a relatively large opening therebetween; and wherein said blade, finger receiving portion and palm rest means are integrally constructed and co-planar.
