Leather Billy Clubs
Leather Billy Clubs is a club or sap, a leather-covered hand weapon, designed to hit or knock you out. The round ones were also commonly known as billies, billy clubs, billie jacks, blackjacks, convoys, and the flat ones are also called slappers, slap stick, slapjacks, slap jacks, sap, sapper, beavertail sap basically because of it's unique shape. Leather billy clubs need no introduction. They are a bludgeoning impact weapon historically used by bouncers, street gangs, thugs, the military, security, and police forces around the world. This is mainly due to the weapon's low profile and small size, and their potential to knock a suspect unconscious. Very intimidating and very effective with lots of stopping power.
On the list of approved weapons still used by some sheriff's deputies are hard-leather saps reminiscent of ones carried by the tough-talking detectives in 1940s films. A sap is a flat, beavertail-shaped slapper that is weighted with lead on the widest end. Small and inconspicuous, it can pack a punch with even the smallest amount of force behind it.
When it's close combat at ultra short range and lethal force is not appropriate, the sap gets downright gorgeous in its ability to resolve conflict. It is a plain working tool that legions of old-time coppers came to respect in the same way a carpenter does a framing hammer. Easy to carry. Available in convenient sizes to fit your needs.
