Odin Leather Goods
Slapjacks, also know as a "sap", is a flattened and weighed leather baton-like device. The head is filled with a lead slug, and the body has a piece of spring steel - combined the device is stiff but also has a bit of flex, which helps it make a nice slapping thud when it hits a table or similarly hard surface. You'll be surprised at just how much of a wallop they pack. It's an old and somewhat nostalgic design.
Depending on where you live and your local laws, you can use it simply as a paper or book weight, or decide like many people to carry one in your vehicle, pocket, or purse. In Texas, we are happily allowed to carry them and if ever needed use them for defensive purposes. That said... Know your local laws, and don't be stupid.
Obligatory Disclaimer.... The saps we sell are for novelty purposes only and not meant to be carried for self-defense. So... This item is best used as a paperweight! Actively using items like this will likely result in you getting in some trouble. In some states the may even be illegal - so check your local laws and regulations (I'm not responsible for doing that for you). Luckily, they are perfectly legal to possess and carry in the State of Texas.
