One of the great advantages of the kubotan is that it’s nothing more than a simple rod, having the same shape of the marker pen. Kubatons have been made of wood or metal or even polymer. Most of the commercial kubotans are metal or plastic ones.  However there is a big room for improvisation here.

A lot of people have been creative enough to make their own kubotans from different materials and in different forms. If you are one of those DIY enthusiasts, we are sharing below some example for how you can make your own kabotan with very simple materials and for very low cost.

We will be updating this list when something pops up.
