26" Chromed steel expandable baton with rubberized handle for better grip. Comes with nylon sheath. If you are looking for effective self-defense with a little extra reach, the 26" steel baton is it. The shaft is telescopic like an antenna. It expands by flicking it open and will lock in that position then requires a tap on a hard surface to close it. When closed the 26" baton is 9-3/4" long.
