This is turned off the patterns and photos of an Baltimore's Joesph "Nightstick Joe" Hlafka Espantoon from the 1960's and 70's over the years Joe made some small changes mainly going larger ad larger, but his biggest addition to the Espantoon was the Swivel, originally taken from a key-chain he saw sitting on his coffee table and braided into the leather thong of the Espantoon, he found he could spin a stick non-stop, whereas before the swivel, they could only spin a few times frontward and backward.  This was by far my favorite of Joe's designs. These four sticks in our Perfection Collection best show the advancements in design taking one of the oldest methods of self-defense; "A stick" and converting it into a more effective weapon for police work. When others started turning sticks, we saw a nice evolution of the Espantoon from the late 50's to the late 70's and early 80's from others. Most well known at the time was Carl Hagen, but he was closely followed by Ed Bremmer, and then the most well known and longest lasting of all Joe Hlafka, Joe turned sticks from the 1970's until 2007 (nearly 40 years).

We have built the Perfection Collection, containing all four sticks for $210.00, So as collectors we can see the progression of the Espantoon as it pertained to Baltimore. To be more accurate the Issued Espantoon shouldn't have a swivel, but we know how much we all like to play, and these spin like butter... so smooth we couldn't resist adding a swivel.
