Heavy duty baton...but baton is slightly slanted
When i first received this baton i was very skeptical at first, ive tried and even broke cheap chinese batons before by just opening closing them...this baton when i first opened it made a satisfying *crack* sound and it was locked in place very very well, it closed with 4 good slams to the tip on a carpet floor, its alittle heavier than expected at first but hold and play with it for a while and you'll get used to it...i opened and closed it a good 6 times to break it in and i noticed the shaft was slanted at the thinnest part of the baton (to check it, open your baton, lay it on a book or something higher than the floor, put the tip on the edge of the book then roll the baton back and forth towards you, you'll see from the middle to the tip if its slanted or not)..naturally i thought " well i guess even if its heat treated it will bend" (but i had mistaken this for bending instead of slanting) i was terrified that this would break and felt like money just went down the i contacted Knife center (very good customer service btw) and i told them my situation and it turns out its normal for batons to have a slight slant in the shaft due to the amount of room inside the casing that the telescopic baton is i felt better and at i decided to put the baton through a small test (because if it cant withstand alittle abuse then might as well use it as a paper weight) so i expanded the baton and i got a peice of 1 and a half inch of wood, and i just wacked it with the tip of the baton i checked it no bends...3 more times no bends, opened closed it, wacked it no bends...after 5 good wacks the baton didnt even bend slightly, the wood was more damaged than the next i tried bending the baton by hand...and nothing i tried fixing the slant by standing on it then pulling...and nothing it was solid, so i was starting to realize this baton was built very well, its not perfect but it will last you as long as you take care of it...and for the money its very affordable, and if by any chance this baton breaks on me you bet ill by another one.

Solid feeling baton
Very solid feel when extended. I questioned how much striking power could be generated until I beat the daylights out of a 2 x 4 in my garage and was then able to successfully retract it. The retraction took some getting used to, but I would not want one that slipped. a little difficult to get out of the sheath. I am considering getting some for gifts

Pros: Weight, Balance, Construction, Materials
Cons: None
It's small and easy to carry and when open it's like having a pipe in your hand. If you can't discourage someone from attacking you then you aren't trying. Oh, AND DON'T OIL THE BATON. Too much oil prevents it from locking open firmly. I had to disassemble it and wipe off the oil and now it functions as it should. Who would've thought you can over-oil something?
