Espantoon Info/History

Webster's Third Edition: "An Espantoon In Baltimore, a policeman's stick" We would like to start out by saying we collect Nightsticks, Espantoons, Batons, Truncheons, Billy Clubs Etc. - If you have one for sale, or donation let us know as we are interested.  For what might be obvious reasons we particularly like Baltimore style sticks, aside from their being the sticks carried by our brothers they also show a progression not just in what we carried, or had made, but what the department had made for us. While we like Baltimore sticks, we collect them all, from any state in the U.S. to any country in the world.

We hope to start a Baltimore Police Museum and would like to have as many we can to show what police have used for years to protect themselves and the public. Initially, it could be a rolling museum, and they will be used to show the differences over the years, as well to show how they wear, due to their having been carried everywhere with an officer over his or her career. As for the Museum, Commissioner Batts has promised us the old Headquarters Museum again, so as soon as possible we will be trying to get back into that museum, and able to show off our history to the public. 

Ed Bremmer nightsticks quote


Follow-up, in 2015 we signed a lease with the city of Baltimore to use what they call the Gallery in Headquarters, it should be opening soon [May 2017] We have a nice Espantoon exhibit on display with a Nomenclature stick color coded to better describe the parts of our Baltimore baton.

This is the Unicorn, hard to find often talked about rarely seen "Lignum Vitae" - I have heard people often say they have a stick made of this or know someone with a stick made of this, a friend of friend's neighbor's father had a stick made of this. But they can never produce it. So I asked my friend Jim Brock at K&I if they ever come up with the wood and can turn it, I would like to be their first customer. Not long after he found enough wood to make four sticks, I bought 001, and I know 002 was purchased by a collector in Illinois - Jim made stick number 003 and liking the stick so much he was thinking about keeping it. So he may still have one stick 004 for sale, I can't be sure. I have another collector that ordered one, so he may have gotren 003 Since Jim never really took it from his shop, or he may have gotten 004. I am sure if anyone is interested a 005 could be ordered, but this is a nice heavy stick. The wood, also called "guayacan" or "guaiacum," and in parts of Europe known as "pockholz," from trees of the Genus Guaiacum is so dense and so heavy it won't float. At one time they were turning this wood to be used as a crankshaft in boats. Baltimore Police department banned this wood for use on their Espantoons back in the late 60's early 70's.

 34 - Thin Blue Line Stick, turned in a Carl Hagen design. This came about after a dream. I woke up thinking about it and contacted K& I Plastic's Jim Brock I explained the idea in which I dreamt I laminated a piece of wood stained Blue between two Black stained blocks of wood and turned a thin blue line stick. I told him about this around 9 am and by noon he had a mock up by the end of the day he had turned the stick, and by the end of the week, it was at my doorstep. Now he makes them in any color a customer might want, The Thin Blue Line is popular, but the Harley Black and Orange isn't far behind.

 57 - Knobkierie 1930's/40's shipped from Carmeil Isreal - to us for our Museum they are from the 1930's-40's and the British Mandate Period of Palestine  - Shipped to us from carmeil, Israel - A Knobkierie, also spelled knobkerrie, Knopkierie or knobkerry, is a form of club used mainly in Southern and Eastern Africa. Typically they have a large knob at one end and can be used for throwing at animals in hunting or for clubbing an enemy's head. The knobkierie is carved from a branch thick enough for the knob, with the rest being whittled down to create the shaft. This is about 16" long the knob at the end is about the diameter of a golf ball. The name derives from the Afrikaans word KNOP, meaning KNOT or BALL and the Nama (one of the Khoekhoe languages) word KIERIE, meaning cane or walking stick. The name has been extended to similar weapons used by the natives of Australia, the Pacific islands, and other places. Knobkieries were an indispensable weapon of war, particularly among southern Nguni tribes such as the Zulu (as the IWISA) and the Xhosa. Knobkieries was occasionally used during World War I The weapon also being carried by British soldiers in Siegfried Sassoon's fictionalized autobiography. During the Apartheid era in South Africa, they were often carried and used by protesters and sometimes by the police opposing them. The Knobkierie is still widely used and carried, especially in rural areas, while in times of peace it serves as a walking or swagger-stick. The head, or knob, is often ornately carved with faces, or shapes that have symbolic meaning. The knobkierie itself serves this function on the current South African Coat of Arms, and on the "Order of Mendi" for Bravery. A KNOBKIERIE also appeared on the flag of Lesotho 1987-2006, the Coat of Arms of Lesotho since its independence in 1966 as well as the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Ciskei.

88 - BPD Issue. 1920's Baltimore City Police issued Espantoon. 

This is an interesting stick courtesy of Porters Antiques it is a 1920's BPD Issue that has been modified by the officer. It was not uncommon in the 1920's for our police to whittle away at their issued Espantoon, carving away at the convex portion of the barrel head to give them an entirely new look. (We are thinking of modifying a modern Issue stick in a similar way but removing the convex bow of the barrel head then adding late 1800's Convex BPD button to the top of the Barrel Head) It was common for an officer to reshape the barrel head, even stain or burnish their stick to give them a totally unique look. Here we have a case where the officer shaved away the convex barrel head to give himself a more straight stick look. Once the Barrel was straight he added some design by carving grooves in the newly formed Burl head _ the following stick seems to be what he was going for

This is one of his early sticks, when Carl started he made his sticks similar in size to the issued sticks of Baltimore, but with his own shape, then as his competition started making sticks bigger and of different wood types Mr hagen had to follow suite. So while this stick looks like all his others, it is much smaller, serving as an indication of age.

Stick #57 is a "Knobkerrie" or "Kirri". It takes its name from the Dutch word "Knop" (meaning "Knob" or "Button") and is the name of a weapon used by Southern African people such as the Zulu and the Xhosa or Thembu people.  It was used for chasing game and at times for warfare. It is probable that Army or Police Officers who had served in some of the African areas adopted the knobkerrie as a Swagger or Walking-stick. Stick #74 the one to the far left Palestine circa 1936.  British Palestine Police on duty in Clock Tower Square, Jaffa, faced Arab crowds.  The front rank of police were armed with pickaxe handles whilst the second rank carries small circular metal riot shields & the standard truncheon.  The BPP at this time had stocks of truncheons provided from London Metropolitan police stores. The reason some police carried pickaxe handles was because of the longer reach, as opposed to the shorter truncheon.  It was not a case of the Arab members of the Force carrying an inferior riot control weapon, (in fact the pickaxe was probably more exspensive weapon than a regulation truncheon) some of the British police on duty that day also carried and used the pickaxe handles.

The reason some police carried pick-axe handles was because of the longer reach, as opposed to the shorter reach of the standard issue Truncheon.  It was not a case of the Arab members of the Force carrying an inferior riot control weapon, (in fact the pick-axe was probably a more expensive weapon than a regulation/surplus Truncheon) some of the British police on duty that day also carried and used the pick axe handles which were often cut in half, a hole drilled and leather or rope thong added so as to prevent the weapon from being stripped away during rioting.

The metal protrusion on top was utilized when the baton was carried attached to the uniform belt when the officer was engaged in the initial stages of public order duty, before officers dressed in riot gear are brought forward as the situation escalates & the level of force required rises. Also used as a Police Baton in Yugoslavia back in the 1960's and 70's

More to Come  
We have over 200 sticks but need to shoot all of them again so we can add them to the site and credit who they came from. If you see a stick that you gave to us please send us the number of the stick and your name, I will see to it that it is added and credited as it should be. I know those that gave sticks mean a lot to Ken and he wants to credit them. He also recently had sticks given to him they will be photographed soon so that we can add them to the page and properly credit the officer that gave it to him.

 Initial Collection

Ten Stick Museum Display described from Bottom to Top, the Bottom stick is our Color-Coded Nomenclature stick made by K&I Creative Plastics and Wood using a Joe Hlafka style Espantoon that is color-coded. The next five sticks are all made by K&I and are described as follows first up is an Unstained BPD Issue, followed by a Stained BPD Issue that has a Thong attached. Above this is a Carl Hagen stick with a thong (no swivel) above this is an Ed Bremer style Espantoon with a thong (no swivel)  above this is our last K&I stick it is done in the Joe Hlafka Espantoon with a thong  (Joe started adding swivels to the thong/strap in the early 1970's - so his stick in this collection has a swivel ) Above Joe's stick is an authentic 1920's/1930's BPD Issue. Above that is a 1940's/1950's BPD Issue unstained (during that period they had a clear coat, officers used to scrape or sand off that clear coat and stain the sticks to a tone of their liking (often they used a dark wood, or burnished color, however it is said that many officers would use the iodine from the radio car's FiAidAide kit,) Above this unstained stick is a 1960's to late 1980's BPD Issue stick. Comparing the sticks primarily the Barrel-Head we see the quality of the turn has lost some of the detail and quality of workmanship. Looking at the shafts, we see for the most part we used a straight shaft, but the 1940s'/1950's stick has a tapered shaft (this is more of a Billy Club style) but this stick is also longer which puts it in the category of a mounted or riot stick and in Baltimore the only time we had a tapered stick was on a rare occasion when our mounted or riot sticks came in that way but typically they too were straight shaft sticks. Likewise, we used to have to buy a stock Police Supply stick on occasion; this was typically when we ran out and our regular supplier didn't have anything in stock. The top stick in this ten stick display is a 1990's Baltimore Issue Koga Baton, a stick that us active police at the time called a Koga stick
