Boston Leather Model 5411 2ply Junior Sap
Boston Leather Model 5411 2ply Junior Sap:
The Boston Leather Two-Ply Junior Sap is a variety of impact weapon that measures 8 1/4" long and weighing 9.5 ounces making it larger and heavier than the equivalent ply Midget Sap. This Boston leather sap is constructed of two layers of durable, heavy gauge leather that encase a molded lead weight on the end. With the spring steel shank in the handle, a snap of the wrist is all it takes to apply a stopping force with this self-defense tool. Boston Leather saps are made in the USA.
I've carried a sap with me almost every day for the last 12 years, having carried a Boston Leather 4 layer Junior mostly until I lost it a few months ago. Comparing quality in one purchased 12 years ago until now I would have to say their quality control has hit rock bottom. I don't expect $100 quality, but I would have expected better from Boston Leather. I went with this 2 later as a replacement and have some issues.
1. The lead slug isn't centered in the head.
2. The stitching follows the off center slug rather than the edge.
3. The end point of the stitch is more of a jumbled mess on the face of it rather than being tied inside of a stitch hole like my last one was.
For about $30.00 including shipping this is an excellent sap. I expect many years of use from this compact and easily concealed all leather weapon.
A Junior is great because you can use it 3 ways... Flat upside someone's head. Tomahawk to cut skin or disable muscles. The flared base can be used to butt someone or smash them in the mouth. Perfect size for the pocket and very comforting to have with you
Love it. Solid. Just what I wanted. Might get the smaller one next time.
