Modeled After Baltimore's Best Espantoons
All four sticks of the Perfection Collection
This set is turned off the patterns and photos of the actual Espantoons, The Baltimore Issued Stick, Carl Hagen, Ed Bremmer, and Baltimore's Joesph "Nightstick Joe" Hlafka Espantoon. These are by far my favorite of these four stick designs. The 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.
