A historical police relic designed for self-defense and riot control scenarios! This is a simple "straightstick" version of the classic Baton, used by officers to subdue aggressive attackers by performing strikes to the quadriceps, biceps or common perineal nerve. Rubber construction absorbs some of the kinetic impact of a strike, theoretically reducing incidences of broken bones. Nowadays, nearly all Dutch law enforcement agencies have switched to more effective side-handle batons or telescoping models using lightweight aluminum. A cool find for your law enforcement collection!
