Welcome to Foster's Custom Leather Saps

My name is Todd Foster and I have been making leather saps since 2004. I offer over 30 different models and that number is growing daily. A few of the models I offer are my model 31, which is a copy of a Jay Pee short slugger, model 741 which is a copy of the famous Bucheimer Texan.

I also offer Cosh or soft saps, which are shot filled.

I also offer Travel Saps, which use coins for the load. These are very popular in Europe.

This is some of the other models I offer.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or design ideas.

Hello & WOW!! I am a Mohawk Indian & "Clubs" are, ...well Its like those Sikhs with Their Knife, Heritage. My Grandfather Fought in WW2 (He was a Squad Commander of 5 British Tanks)When He left for England 2 go 2 War. His Father Gave Him His "Black-Jack" (it's Cylindrical so) His Father was a Security Guard 4 the CP Railway & Used This Over the Wooden Truncheon.
My Gramps Used His Jack, in Close quarter's, & *AFTER The War, in Germany as a M.P, He has Told Me MANY Tales about Saps. When I got Older I was Given ,His Heirloom. PPL will Read This & say Negative things, But THEY Have NEVER Been hit with a ASP!! (Which I H8, The PR-24'S I liked, 4 those reading thats a Tonfa is their real name) Law Dogs, especially the Younger Ones. Hear stories about the Ole Sap. From Time 2 Time I bring in a Few from My Collection Bucheimer's,Bianchi's QUALITY & I Get the "Oooo-Ahhhh...Can U Get me One" They R no-longer "issued" & I know in the States, They R Not Allowed. But the Funny thing is EVERY Pair of Pants that Police Wear, Have whats STILL Called a "Sap Pocket" though few, use it for that, usually Its a Knife thats in One (which 2 me is WORSE) , "Beaver-Tails" were allowed as they spread the force of the Impact, but You could Turn it so the Side was the striking Area, This was GREAT, As it "Sliced" Through Muscle *WITHOUT Breaking the Skin* now This sounds Cruel, but when U hav a Guy coming @ U with a Knife or,He's BIG & on Drugs, It's A LOT more Humane then the "Alternatives" that L.E PPL Sadly resort to ALL 2 Often. Due 2, Idiots this EXTREMELY Useful Tool was , Replaced & then finally "banned" 90% of the Time, Even NOW Just, letting the perp SEE the Black Leather Sap is Enough :P as The "Black-Jack" has a aura of Pain 2 most PPL. Saps have been done away with, & Now it's the EASILY Purchased by ANY1 "ASP" (99% Though it's some Cheap Copy, but still does the job) I had the displeasure of Being Hit in the Ribs with one, it Broke 5 Ribs & some skin. The ONLY Advantage ASP's hav R 2 things #1 it gives Un-confident PPL The "Reach" or Distance the feel they NEED, as they'll use a Taser/or Worse a Gun (these R the SAME TYPE of Idiot's that Made the Public think that Saps R 2 Dangerous) the 2nd thing is, the Old PR-24's , when U get into a Car, has the all 2 often affect of getting in the Way, so they R left in the S.C. Saps, R dangerous, *when used improperly, like hitting the Head (duh) but the Lead, or Buck Shot is A LOT more "forgiving" 2 those strikes that didn't land right. I AM VERY HAPPY 2 See QUALITY Saps (beaver-Tails) being Made, as ALL I Have seen & purchased is, OVERSEAS GARBAGE that R made out of Poor Material or in the case of "Spring Billies" VERY Dangerous 16oz of lead on a 500lb Spring, wrapped in 1 Layer of CHEAP 2-3grade Leather. seeing Yours , Makes mre say 2 things "YES!!, FINALLY SOMEONE ,Hasn't forgotten this "lost Art"... & ***2nd, WHEN CAN I BUY ONE, Who do I gotta Talk to, LOL I'm ALWAYS On the Look-out 4 Old Bucheimer's,Bianchi's & NEW *QUALITY* Saps, of ALL Type & I can see the Quality &, well Me want, many

Mr. Foster.
I am interested in your product line and would like to purchase a lead filled slap. I particularly like the look of the more curved style. Tennessee has recently changed some of the self defense laws, and as a former LEO I am allowed to legally carry impact weapons for self defense. While I do carry a .45 I would like the option. Can be contacted at Thanks Jerry.
