Two of Chromoly’s past designs, the Ninja Tack and especially Bourgeois Brass Knuckle, emerged as problematic to market. Potential manufacturers were consulted by their lawyers to stay away from them, and Scandinavian retailers
The Ninja Tacks and Bourgeois Brass Knuckle modified two weapon types to serve a different, non-violent, function. Everyday Weapons inverses this formula so that the capacity of everyday things to be used violently is drawn out of them. A wrench and a pair of scissors are housed in leather holsters, putting them in a context of readiness for use as weapons; and a sling transforms a glass tumbler into a projectile. The leather apparatuses weaponize the objects without altering them.
