The Blunt Large (or Regular) Umbrella is an umbrella for extended periods in heavy rain . It's a radical re-design of the standard umbrella. It won't break, tear, or turn inside out, and it's beautiful to use and behold. And this is the Blunt size for heavy rains, big protection and bigger people. It has an extra-reinforced ribbing to prove it.
Blunt Umbrellas are a unique new approach to umbrella design. They're named because of their blunt edges which are bereft of sharp pointy bits that snap and poke people's eyes.
There's a different strut structure, and telescopic ribs which distribute wind force evenly along the edge of the canopy. At the end of each bendy strut there are little springs rather than the usual vulnerable threads. It all leads to a lack of stress points and safe shelter in winds up to 117km/hr.
Blunt umbrellas are a constant joy to open. They're manual umbrellas without the normal little annoying metal locking clip. There's an ergonomic plastic collar which glides easily and positively to open and close. It feels good.
Blunt Umbrellas are a pro environment statement against throw-awayism. They're umbrellas for a long relationship - a long stormy one in the case of the Blunt Large
