Designer makes bullet-proof hanky

A clothing designer in Iceland has unveiled a $154 accessory billed as the
world's first bullet-proof breast pocket handkerchief.

Designer Sluli Recht said the Kevlar hankies are designed to be folded into
breast pockets of formal clothing to "protect the heart of men," The Daily
Telegraph reported Wednesday.

However, Recht said he takes "no responsibility for schmucks and wooden-
heads who feel compelled to test the endurance or resistance of the
textile in any way."

Kevlar, which is five times stronger than steel, is designed to stop bullets
and withstand temperatures of about 752 degrees.

Recht said he currently has only 10 of the handkerchiefs available for sale,
but he has plans to expand his line of Kevlar-based clothing products,
which also currently includes a coat.
