Kiwad is a rather strange name for a weapon, it’s something you would think is some kind of fruit or maybe a vitamin supplement until you read in the manual that comes with it that Kiwad stands for “Karen I want a divorce”, something Donvan Black swears is just a joke and that Galactic Horizon does not endorse nor encourage matricide, it was released in mid-late YE 41.
The Kiwad ring is a concealed escape and self defence tool designed and manufactured by Galactic Horizon in YE 41 that makes use of the immense tensile strength their exclusive material Skusten offered - it is based off the simple age old design of a garotte, a thin yet strong wire with two handles that is usually employed for wrapping around an opponents neck to cut off their oxygen supply, though it can also be used during hand to hand combat to wrap around limbs and take partial control of the situation, the Kiwad was designed to do this as well as being able to saw through restraints and electrocute whomever you manage to ensnare with the Skusten wire.
Miscellaneous information about this weapon.
When “holstered” the Kiwad has the appearance of an average, albeit slightly bulkier than usual, Durandium Alloy ring – standard it comes plain though owners may engrave designs on the outside of if they so desire.
When deployed it separates into two halves connected by a spool of golden Skusten wire, the half that stays with the finger and starts off with the wire wrapped around, and the unscrewed half that is intended to be used as a handle for the wielder to loop the off-hand’s pointer finger into – when the ring opens it reveals a small spring-loaded trigger that, when depressed, pushes electricity through the garrotte’s wire.
