End up in the wrong part of town and you might be find yourself down one of those dingy, movie cliche alleys.  Odds are nothing will happen to you, but there is nothing quite like a bit of piece of mind to help you remain calm so you can retrace your steps and get back on track.  Plus, you never know when the Zombie Apocalypse will roll into town and that’s why you’ll want one of these, the Belt Knife.

Okay, so we’ve shown you one of these before, but this version, from the Bowen Knife Company, is a bit more refined.  Meaning you could wear it with dress pants, or perhaps even a suit, a style of clothing that makes you fit for the center of attention – just ask Batman.  Nevertheless, the knife doubles as a buckle, where as the belt itself is the sheath.  We’re not sure how it stays in place, but one thing is for sure, and that’s once you undo your belt, you’ll always have access to a 2.5-inch long blade.  Pervs and criminals won’t see it coming, so the shock value should hopefully be enough to scare them off.  And thanks to the semi-ergonomic design, it should fit in your hand nicely, allowing you to still form a fist.

You can pickup a few different versions of the Knife Belt Buckle for $35.  The one pictured above is no where to be found, which is a shame since it appears to have a bottle opener built-in to it.
