Leather slappers or blackjacks inches as they are also known have been used by law enforcement for generations. It has a thick leather outer skin that is sewn around flexible steel handle and has molded lead in the striking end. The steel keeps the unit rigid but allows a little give when you strike something. Slappers are flat and slip right into a pants pocket almost un-noticed. This was a very effective weapon when law enforcement use to carry them. In fact, many police departments had a special pocket built into the officer feet s uniform. It was usually down the side of the leg and would allow the leather strap to hang out. Most departments do not allow officers to use this weapon anymore, but a lot of collectors want them for their collections. This unit is 8-1/2 inch long and has a leather strap to secure your grip.
