The Samurai Sword Umbrella

Walking around with a Samurai sword instantly commands respect, deference, and prestige — and walking around with an umbrella shows people you're terrified of the rain. Taking cues from the most useful parts of both objects, the Samurai Sword Umbrella lets you stay dry while maintaining a semblance of honor, because for all anyone knows, you could be about to go all Pulp Fiction on everyone.

We should probably add that it's not actually a Samurai sword — it's not $15,000 — but then again let's be honest: you probably shouldn't be lugging around a real Samurai sword.
