I used to share a room with a guy who would file the old two pence pieces until they had a sharp edge; then throw them at people. He used to stuff some into an Englands Glory matchbox and put them in his pocket before going out on the lash. By the time he went to MCTC he had explored the possibilities of darts and finally graduated to golf balls with a six inch nail through the middle. As a young sprog we used to hear tales of Irish women studding half potatoes with several razor blades and slashing soldiers faces, though I hope it was just an urban myth. I remember there used to be all kinds of crap floating around the block; coshes, bats, rambo knives, CS sprays......the list is endless. I heard about - but never met - a known eccentric who persuaded the LAD to weld a medieval morning star mace together for him out of some scrap metal and old chain. So what was/is your favourite improvised or unnoficial weapon?
