This 50 cent piece might help you escape from evil doers

This coin from 5ive Star Gear might look like an ordinary Kennedy half dollar, but I assure you that it’s not. Go ahead, take a closer look… The genuine US coin has been modified into two pieces that pull apart to reveal a razor-sharp Japanese steel blade. This covert escape coin has been designed to blend in with the rest of your pocket change – although I can’t remember the last time I carried a 50 cent piece… If you get nabbed by some baddies, you can use the blade to slice through rope, cord, duct tape, etc. The 5ive Star Gear 50 cent escape coin can be purchased from for $39.

    Man I don’t think I would ever buy something like this, just think if the pieces separate in your pants.
