Product Review: Telescopic Steel Baton

Posted by Rob on Friday, 29 January, 2010

If you haven’t been formally introduced previously, let me introduce you to Mr. Telescopic Steel Baton. Baton, Reader. Reader, Baton.

A telescopic steel baton is neither a high school coach’s whistle, nor a walking stick. We are talking up to 26″ of solid steel thug-bashing pain-on-a-stick. Not to knock personal alarms which do serve their purpose, but nothing beats a solid whack to the ribs, or hobbling blow to the knee quite like a telescopic steel baton. Just ask Nancy Kerrigan.

When fully collapsed and stored, your baton will only take up about 9″, give or take depending on if you purchased the 18″, 21″ or 26″ models. The sizing corresponds to then strength and size of its wielder. A big burly trucker would probably pack a 26″er, a 5’5″ petite woman may prefer the 18″.

But don’t let the difference between the sizes sway you. Each one is going to get the job done with a quickness and cause some serious injury and trouble for any would-be attacker.

Talk about walking softly and carrying a big stick, quite the physical and psychological advantage.

No one is trying to strongarm you into buying self defense products but you have to believe in the statistics spread over the past few years, all pertaining to violence at different levels. Day by day, our environment is coming up with prominent signs of danger.

It used to be the dark damp alleys you had to worry about, now you could be victim of an assault during your leisurely stroll through the park in the middle of the afternoon, or taking your morning jog before work.

Just last week, there was a story in the news about a 26-year-old autistic woman in Toledo, Ohio that was raped on the sidewalk by a 15-year-old thug on her way to the library. This occurred in the middle of the day, with several cars just driving by. The woman was followed by the attacker, knocked to the ground, threatened with scissors, had her sweatpants pulled off, and was raped while yelling for help in broad daylight. The attacker then stole her cell phone as he fled the scene.

Eventually one woman, who had already driven past, gave the incident she just viewed a second though, and decided to call 911.

Of course the police arrived well after the assault and rape was over. It was even reported immediately after the attack, the victim attempted to borrow the cell phone of a man walking down the street to call the cops, and the man refused and kept on walking. La la la, I can’t hear or see you…

Are you serious?

I’m thinking minimum someone should have pulled over along side, laid on the horn for the duration and phoned the police right then and there. Next best, someone armed with pepper spray, a stun gun or perhaps a telescopic steel baton could have intervened and given this punk a working over. Let the cops clean up when they got there.

The juvenile delinquent was found later, and sure enough, it is reported that he suffers from mental issues. As if that wasn’t evident from his public display of aggression…

I am counting a number of people that could use a good wake up whopping to knock some sense into them.

Just a flick the Telescopic Steel Baton and it will automatically extend itself to the maximum attitude-adjusting capacity. This will engage a rather satisfying sound, as the positive locking system snaps into place. This serves a dual purpose, one to let you know your baton is ready for business, and secondly, your soon-to-be target will know he is about to be pummeled. If he had a lick of sense, he might even turn tail and vacate the area right then and there.

In addition, these trusty sidekicks have a couple of other features besides its low public profile and solid steel construction. It in encased in a comfortable foam handle for easy gripping and maneuverability, and it has an optional LED light to double as a flashlight.

Be Safe, Be Prepared, Don’t Just Stand There, Take Some Action.

Self Defense. It’s so Easy, Even a Caveman Could do it.

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 8 May, 2008

Self Defense. It’s so easy, even a Caveman could
do it.

And no disrespect to our Neanderthal brethren.
They carried some big clubs and spears back in the
Paleolithic day. I would challenge any of today’s
breed of criminal to play woolly mammoth and go
toe-to-toe with a caveman and see what happens.

But today, walking down the street with a huge bone
or wooden club wouldn’t be very inconspicuous. For
something that would attract much less attention,
perhaps a telescopic steel baton would be more

Don’t be fooled by the small size of the telescopic
steel baton
. It is still quite capable of delivering a
Cro-Magnon style beatdown to any unruly or
aggressive street thug looking to harm you or a
loved one. All you have to do is snap the telescopic
in to action and swing away. It’s so easy, even
a Caveman could do it.

Perhaps the discovery of fire may persuade the
modern day caveman decedents to harness the
power of Wildfire brand Pepper Spray. This stuff
is HOT.

A one second burst of Wildfire pepper spray will
stop an attacker for up to 45 minutes without
causing permanent damage. Their mucous membranes
will swell to prevent all but life support breathing
causing the assailant to be temporarily incapacitated.
It will induce coughing, choking and nausea, as well
as dilating the eye capillaries resulting in temporary
blindness. They may even utter some caveman like
groans and moans while rolling around on the
ground. Uggh!

All you have to do to deploy the pepper spray is
flip the safety, point the spray and push the button.
It’s so easy, even a Caveman could do it.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to
you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection
could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth
Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your
personal well-being?

Yours in safety,

Machete Becoming Bay State’s Weapon of Choice?

Posted by Rob on Wednesday, 9 April, 2008

The only Friday the 13th on the calendar in 2008 is in June, but already there has been a rash of Jason Voorhees like attacks. And it is only April. So far, this is the reported Machete attacks already occurring this year in the state of Machetusetts, I mean Massachusetts:

Jan. 7: (Roxbury, MA) Two men are arrested after they allegedly chase two people down a street while wielding a machete.

Jan. 18: (Chicopee, MA) A man is struck on his head, face and arm by a machete in the parking lot of Sunco Trading Corp during a robbery.

Feb. 4: (Springfield, MA) A man is slashed in the neck and throat and a woman is hit in the arm and leg with a machete in the parking lot of a Gulf gas station.

March 4: (Lynn, MA) Outside Lynn English High School, a 16-year-old Lynn boy suffers a facial laceration and nearly loses his right thumb from a machete attack.

March 8: (Boston, MA) An East Boston man is found bleeding from both feet from a machete attack in a staircase on Meridian Street.

March 13: (Boston, MA) An East Boston teen, victim of a daytime assault at City Hall Plaza is hacked in the left arm, back and shoulder by a machete.

March 15: (Boston, MA) A Revere man is struck in the mouth and back by a machete in a daytime assault on Dorchester Avenue. A South Boston woman was also hit in the head with the machete as she attempted to intervene.

March 26: (Lynn, MA) A Lynn teen is sliced on his left arm with a machete at a Strawberry Avenue playground while playing soccer with two brothers.

To date, these attacks pale in comparison to the death, destruction and gore of the machete-wielding mass murderer in the movies, but this frequency of machete attacks would even make Jason proud.

The machetes are being described as “inexpensive weapons (that) are too easily obtained”. “It’s obviously a very dangerous implement. It can cause severe damage when wielded against another human being,” says Mass. DA Daniel F. Conley.

For somewhere between $5 and $30 bucks, just about anyone can purchase a machete from online to the local Wal-mart. Typically ranging from 18-24 inches, this steel blade that can “cut, chop, slash, hack, split, scrape, scoop, hammer, crack or smash just about anything you can put in front of it.”

Machete sales are largely unregulated due to the fact it is designed and classified as a basic farming tool, mainly used in third world countries. Just like most of the Asian Martial Arts weapons that were originally peasant farming tools several hundred or thousand years ago, before they became popularized in Karate movies and American dojos.

But don’t worry. Massachusetts law prevents the sale of self defense weapons to all of its law abiding citizens. No tasers, no stun guns and extremely limited pepper spray approval if you jump through enough hoops and red tape!

We do have a few self defense options left for you Massachusetts, New York or other restricted state residents. Our telescopic steel batons are rather nice. Not too bad of an option. I wouldn’t mind having at least a 26″ inch steel baton to combat some psycho with a 18″ blade. Not necessarily ideal, but you have the reach advantage. And you can practice some moves and train yourself pretty good to defend yourself with the
telescopic steel baton. Most likely the machete is just being flailed around by an inexperienced wielder…

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Speak Softly and Carry a Telescopic Steel Baton

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 20 March, 2008

I really can’t seem to say enough about our telescopic
steel batons
. They are really a great self defense
weapon. When collapsed they range from a mere 6 inches
to about 9 inches long, and when deployed, they extend
to 16, 21 or 26 inch length.

They are extremely portable and easily concealed, as
well as being a very effective and devastating, making
them a widely popular personal protection tool.

Besides being formidable when used, the simple act of
just deploying this baton becomes a deterrent in many
cases. When snapped into action, the steel shafts
sliding into place and its loud and ominous click as it
locks into position can make even a hardened criminal
think twice about continuing their harassing behavior.

It is like the warning before the beat down. Who really
wants to be pummeled with a steel baton? The only give
is the target on impact, the steel baton is less than
forgiving when it meets an opponent’s flesh, bone or
muscle. Whack!

That noise is much like that ominous crackle of
electricity on an armed stun gun ready to be drilled
into the side of an attacker. Bzzzzzt! Few want to
continue to challenge, and those not yet privy to this
warning will soon be taught its association.

Just like Theodore Roosevelt used to say “Speak softly
and carry a big stick.” Or carry a small stick that
turns into a big stick
. “You will go far.”

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to
you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection
could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth
Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your
personal well-being?

Yours in safety,
