I finally got around to making one of these. It was hell trying to source the parts, but I finally found something that worked. The main body of the staff is created from two discontinued 31" ASP Electroless Airweight batons connected by a tube from a pepper spray accessory. Then I wrapped the whole frame in leather and paracord and added some studded leather end caps with snaps to keep the shafts from deploying unintentionally. The result is a club that can function as a baton, mace, bokken, or staff. It's ~2 feet long closed and ~5.5 feet long extended. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Here's an updated version of the staff. I figured out a way to have the two halves detach but remain secure and sturdy when attached using a quick-release coupling. I also removed the bulky end-caps, found a sleeker, more elegant solution using rubber valves to keep the tips from sliding out unintentionally.

Very nice.
Good to see you have improved and updated the staff.
Much better when it's more sleek.

Can i ask how will this be attached to your person.
Meaning as in a sling, a pocket, harness, belt or shoulder strap?

I've thought about that, but I haven't settled on anything yet. Since I do leatherwork, I can make any kind of holster, really, but I'm still testing out various configurations. A lot of it will depend upon some other projects I have in mind, various kinds of bags and packs to add to my gear. The staff will likely find a place in or attached to one of those.

First of all, fantastic job with the staff!

If you wanted to get fancy, you could always try a mechanism similar to the one Ammnra used in his "hidden short sword" (watch the video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTdRbJaJ5fM). Basically, you would just attach half of the staff (or one retracted baton) to each forearm. A quick ring pull would let it drop down into your hand.

Just a suggestion, keep us posted on what you decide on.

I've seen ammnra's videos, his hidden "anything" kit is similar to it.
Would be pretty awesome to have to batons come out of the sleeves and attach themto each other.

A slight problem is that it needs to swivel, when it reaches the end of the "rail", (part reason for wearing a t-shirt).
But it could be rigged up, to come straight out of the sleeves, into your hand.
My two pence worth :)

Nice concept Arthyron,
Personally i would add some mods to make it better,
For instance, try creating a lock which locks both baton sticks you used to create this staff. this because then, you wil also be able to use 'stabbing' actions with it, without it retracting.

Good luck with it, I never managed to design something that works with baton sticks!
