    I've always had an interest in weapons mostly archaic weapons, but i can groove on guns as well.

    I've got a sword cane or two, but what i would really like is a weapon that is a combination weapon but that is essentially non lethal. A pair of taser prongs in the butt of the cane that retract when not in use, and a head that is a pepper spray sprayer. Say a dragon's head.

    Could this be built and if so how expensive would it be? I'm not sure i could pay for it in real life, but i am certainly academically interested.

    I know that I can build a retractable taser for about 20 bucks. Making it pretty and stylish would be another thing, though. Then again, I'm not a weaponsmith, just an electronics hobbyist.

    My hubby is a blacksmith by hobby and can forge knives and the like, but i'm not so sure about anything else.... I'll have to ask.

    yes. we can build it. we have the technology!
    but it'll cost you.
    going by tulpa's estimate of 20 bucks for a retractable taser, and a quick google for an appropriate type of cane at about 35 bucks(cheapest i could find: ) as an added bonus, apparently you can buy inserts in various styles.
    now the tricky bits. you want a pepper spray container that can fit either on top of or in the tube of the tube cane. given i have none of these products, i have to make a couple guesses. the closest i could find that would probably work is here: at about 40 bucks, and then 8 bucks for each replacement spray.
    at this point my google skills failed me, as i couldn't find a single appropriately shaped dragon head.

    but it seems you could have one made for around $100 or so USD. i'm not sure how much fiddling around afterwards would be nessisary however, so to be safe i'm gonna say $140 + the cost of the dragon head.

    Cool. I have a character in a game who wants one of these made for him, and i was wondering how expensive. Also idly wondering how much i'd have to pay if I wanted one.
