I bought my 21" S&W baton in 2013. I've used it regularly in my self defense training...twice a week average. It's held up very well, being struck full-force, against a Century Bob training dummy's torso, head, and neck...the torso being a rather hard surface with little yield. It will also make long, wide gashes in heavy duty cardboard boxes. I only notice slight wear to the finish and the handle texturing is a little worn, but I don't feel it compromises my grip at all. For going through eight years of striking a target similar to what would be encountered in a real defensive scenario, I call that very good durability. I thank God, I've never had to use the baton to defend myself. But, I'm certain this baton would be an excellent defensive weapon for anyone with the proper training. I'm now considering buying the 26" S&W baton. Thanks S&W for making such a high quality, affordable product.
My mouthy neighbor dropped like a ton of bricks with one good whack. His mouth won't be running anytime soon. Great value!
The S&W 21" baton and holster arrived quickly. The baton deploys easily and collapses only with a strong blow directly on the tip so would be reliable in action. I'm very pleased with the service from baton warehouse, and with the baton.
The baton arrived as promised. I am impressed with the quality. It takes a bit of pressure to collapse, but I am ok with that. For the money it is well worth it. It will definitely do the job!
This is a solid baton. It is not the most fluid opening baton but its build quality is top notch. Disassembly is a breeze and for a baton under $50 you won't beat this, pun intended.
