ThinkGeek is now joking that its Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella should come with a warning label: "May incite SWAT teams." The reason? Panic on a Georgia university campus.
Either we just made it up, or that Haiku dates to around the14th century. It is a little known fact that Samurai also carriedumbrellas. Much as they later had to disguise their swords ascanes, so they disguised their umbrellas as swords. In fact, therewas one skilled umbrella maker who all the Samurai relied on fortheir Sword Handle Umbrellas. His name has been buried in the sandsof time, but his plans have been preserved. And now, it is withgreat pleasure that we offer to you, the Samurai Sword HandleUmbrella.
How wacky can your umbrella get? Well, it certainly can’t get any crazier than the Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella, featuring a handle that looks like a samurai sword, but the only thing it deflects are rain drops from getting you wet. The push button opening makes it easy to flick the entire thing open in one smooth movement in a way only a samurai can, but we’re not too sure whether the hilt is worth paying for where everything else about the umbrella is normal…
