I have made many example of these type of historical impact weapon
Blackjacks - these are lead moulded to a spring, these have the traditional flex to them
Twistjack - these are lead moulded to wire rope, more rigid and not springy
Mono Colour DL Type 1 blackjack - This is the heavier verion at around 12-13oz, two part handle.
Standard version is 10-11oz which has a slightly smaller head
Mono coloured DL Convoy - a replica in size and weight of the Bucheimer Convoy
The Grink - Twistjack, mono colour, and I weld a ring to the end of the wire rope, so you can clip it to something. Smallest twistjack at only 6" long
Thr Grink - Blackjack. this is the smallest blackjack at 6", as with other blackjacks, this one is made with a spring, so has the flexible whippy action. As I make these to the same dimensions as
the Twistjack, all the blackjack versions I add a leather thong wrist loop.
This show the AJ Link style handle on a Type 1, 10oz Twsitjack
HW (Head Wrap) - This is of a standard 8" size but with a larger lead head, and over hand handle wrapped on the head. This one weighed in at a little over 16oz, normally these are around
DL Blackjack 799
My version of the Bucheimer 799, but heavier. I make this with my AJ Link wrist loop, or the 2part wrist loop.
Weighs in at a bit over 12oz
DL Irving - short 7" quick to deploy blackjack. Muliple braids. The shaft is identical to that of the blackjack carried by the famous Texas Ranger Clint Peoples.
