  1. Saps, Blackjacks & Slungshots: A History of Forgotten Weapons is what the research project above turned into. And, I actually did plan on spending time here 2 years ago when I posted but life outside of my family and day job pretty much became a non-stop marathon to create the book. It's the first ever of it's kind, I have positive advanced reviews from published weapons authors and a history professor. Print edition should soon be added to Amazon and other book retailer sites. For your consideration... https://www.amazon.com/Saps-Blackjacks-Slungshots-History-Forgotten-ebook/dp/B07C85JKMC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1525888729&sr=8-1&keywords=saps%2C+blackjacks+and+slungshots%3A++a+history+of+forgotten+weapons p.s. Mods- I hope this is OK, if not I understand..
  2. Thanks! I have my eye on a nice baleen bosun cosh similar to the ones above. I thought my pre-leather & lead collection would be decently representative then but it looks like I need me one of them pocket flails too (sic).
  3. I'm on it. Was focusing on other precursors but am realizing the flail plays a bigger part than I realized. Here's my fruit cosh/bludgeon.
  4. Oh my, this site is a bit of a revelation for me as someone researching what we in the U.S. call saps and blackjacks. Do you know roughly when this very particular (I call it the Easter egg) kind of configuration began to be used?
