ESP hardened expandable 16" baton

Our hardened expandable batons (ExB) are intended for professional use in extreme conditions. The batons serves for fast self-defence in different conflict situations. The difference to the non-hardened version is the expandable tubes, which are made from a more superior material, which is hardened by heat treatment. Thanks to it, the batons are highly resistant to a flexion if the baton is exposed to a hard stroke. Surface finish is black nickel-zinc (with good resistance to abrasion), or chrome (silver surface).

They meet the requirements of the German standard for expandable batons. This product is suitable for the police, security agencies, and guards, against an assailant armed with a knife, for walking in the country alone or with a dog.

The expandable baton is opened by sharp flick and stays firmly fixed in this position. We have produce hardened batons versions in 5 lengths with 3 types of rubber handles:

  • anti-slip with indented – rough surface .... type "H"
