This compact collapsible baton is made by Taylor Brands for S&W. The compact size permits undercover or plainclothes officers and protection personnel the opportunity for an alternate weapon besides their duty weapon. It can be clipped into a pocket or inside the waistband for concealment. The shaft and handle are made of carbon steel. The baton deploys with a flick of the wrist. It includes a hand-held sheath that is perfect for jogging, walking or hiking.
