A common old-school self defense weapon – leather saps used to be popular with police before the advent of tasers and pepper spray. Even though they might not make a great primary weapon, it is still a great collectible.
My friend Raymond Desmarais is an incredible leather worker who makes beatufil leather saps. The video below explains what a leather sap is, and shows you some of my friend’s work. If you want to check out his stuff go to his Leather Saps Site
