I do a number of different saps, flat saps, soft load, hard load, all sorts of different sizes. Each type of sap may do the same thing, but they do them in different ways.
DL Police KO Glove
DL Police KO Glove - a recreation by me of an item seen
in an old magazine article from a bygone era.
Filled with 2mm sized lead shot. Adjustable handle.
Handle is rolled leather, to add support to the fist, often referred to as a loaded fist.
Flat Saps as they're called. Solid lead head molded direct to a length of spring steel. Weigh in about 11-12oz
These three models, side by side to show the difference are, from right to left
Taf (or Taffy)
Macky saps. Sort of a cross between a flat sap and a blackjack. Round solid lead head, molded to a length of spring steel. More impact than a flat sap due to the round cylindrical head. Heavier at
Casey XL and Casey L soft saps. No spring steel in the handle. filled with 2mm lead shot. Basis of the design is from saps produced during the American civil war
Palm & Finger Saps
Palm saps. Fit in the palm of your hand, with a strap over the back of the hand. Filled with 2mm lead shot.
Palm saps are intended to be descretely concealed in the palm, offers the element of surprise.
Finger saps. Also go into the palm of the hand but further up into the finger area. Flatish with a solid lead load. Unlike the palm sap the only noticeable part is the loop over the finger. Even
more of an element of surprise.
