History

Billy club, truncheon, nightstick, the beloved child has many names. Throughout history, police have carried various kinds of batons. For a long while, they were basically straight clubs. Then in the early ‘70s, the side-handle baton was introduced to US law enforcement. Thanks to the big martial arts boom, it was heavily influenced by the traditional Okinawan weapon known as tonfa, which is used in Kobudo and some Karate styles.

The most famous law enforcement version is the Monadnock PR-24, and people started calling similar batons from other manufactures also PR-24. From the US, it also spread to some other countries. However, the use of solid batons has been declining in recent years to make way for telescopic batons, Tasers, and pepper spray.

Features

This is the one and only Monadnock PR-24, in particular the STS version that features the so-called Trumbull stop at the end of the side handle. It is the buttpluguesque knob that keeps the handle better in your grip. There are other versions on the market, without the stop, expandable shafts, etc.

Use

With proper training, the side-handle baton is a more versatile self-defense and crowd control tool than a straight one. Without proper training, you will most likely get more dents than the opponent. It is used like a tonfa, with the exception that tonfas are usually used in pairs whereas this is used on its own. In addition to striking, you can use it for blocking while protecting your forearms from the impact, as well as locking and controlling the opponent.

Note! These are sold purely for collecting purposes. Make sure you follow your country’s legislation for purchasing, owning, and carrying such items.

Condition

Used British law enforcement surplus. These might have some tiny scratches but since the material is tough as hell, they are in very good condition. A lot cheaper than a new one. Made in the USA.

Quite possibly a indestructible piece of kit (even thou its not from commiedisneyland). Perfect for arming your own riot control in case you need to beat western spies, hippies or the local opposition.

I had one of these before so the only mystery was the condition the Varusteleka surplus ones were in. I am glad to say that these only have the normal wear from being put into and pulled out of the metal ring that officers use to secure it to their belts. I'll take this kind of wear over paying more than double for a brand new one. There is no warping or large chunks out of it. It is American made.
The Trumbull stop is a vast improvement over the original handle as it secures it in your hand as you swing it.
Buy two if you are using them as Karate Tonfa. These are better than wood Tonfa which tend to be too short for non-Asian arms.
