The "Comtech" Stinger
Last week we introduced James Keating, a tactical fighting instructor that runs "Comtech" and the "MAAJAK" website. That post included video of Keating manipulating a knife from grip-to-grip at one of his training sessions.
Now we take a look at the Comtech "Stinger". As you see above, it's an unusual pocket tool that fits in the hand, with a striking point that protrudes past the fist:
Let me tell you; this thing would hurt, tear muscle and break bones. It's a featherweight in your pocket or hand, but likely indestructible. Even if you don't have knowledge of pressure point or vital point striking, this thing will damage anything it hits. I can imagine it penetrating between ribs or smashing the bones on the back of an opponent's fist.
The Stinger is nondescript, almost resembles a child's toy, is not metallic and is easily concealed. One of the gripping "arms" is curved. This allows the Stinger to point slightly up or down. It also has a hole that a key chain ring can be inserted into if needed.
