Craft & Design


The Persuader is a purse designed by James Piatt to look like a gun. He writes:

“For the girl on the move the Pursuader features a handy cell phone compartment in the clip. Constructed by interlocking laser cut leather this handbag has no stitching. This is a combination of old-world craftsmanship and high technology. Create the look no one can refuse.”

It’s supposed to scare off thieves and other assailants. Works on me!

    I agree. I’d much rather see a purse modeled after a finely crafted wood and steel precision bolt action rifle or even an FN-FAL, the finest battle rifle ever conceived. Whoever thought of making the purse look like the latest wonder-combat-tupperware has no sense of history or the fine art of weapons

    Let me get my purse out to pay for that would be met with the shopkeeper getting out a shotgun like never before.
