If you've ever gone hiking in the forest where there is lots of brush underfoot, these spurs would be a great advantage. Made like cowboy boot spurs, these would attach to the toe portion of your boots instead of the heel. The little wheel would be a mini- circular saw blade with a small, protective guard on top to protect the wearer. As you walk along, you can run the spur across small branches in your path, or underbrush that gets tangled.

They can be used manually, or motoized with a small battery pack. Great for trail blazing!

Note to [8th of 7th]- NOT to be used as a weapon unless in an emergency!

       But wait, there's more.
It slices, it dices, it exfoliates. The wire-wheel attachment removes rocks from horseshoes and scales fish in no time. The buffing wheel will keep your tack and buckles looking like brand new.

       If you order right now you'll recieve a free set of spurklers.
Nothing gets your steed moving like spinning pyrotechnic spurs. No doubt a boot it.

       OK [2fries] - want to go into business? haha (love the *spurklers*!)

       // mini- circular saw blade //   

       Please specify whether the blade is powered or unpowered. If powered, it would have to spin at very high rpm, and be liquid-cooled and lubricated, else it would have to be frequently sharpened/replaced. If unpowered, it would be worse than useless.

       Perhaps 8th would prefer a weed burner.   

       I was kind of hoping to see a toe-mounted brush axe idea, for which power would be unnecessary, but toe mounted might not be the best design.

       We already have one, but the tracks crack up the paving on the driveway, and the nozzle in the mantlet won't depress far enough to allow small weeds to be dealt with accurately.   


       Also, it takes up nearly as much room in the shed as the lawnmower.

       Excellent anti-rape protection device.
