Jimmy is referring to the things, "weapons", that women drop while at their dressers. He is referring to items like brushes and combs that women use to change or "beautify" themselves. Jimmy thinks women actually maul themselves in the process of looking good. He compares women at their mirrors to a "dirty Arab" cutting open a sheep. He also believes that women aren't delicate. they could not be surgeons because they have such "primitive heavy hands."
