Spring Cosh Techniques???
I know we have recently had discussions about maces, blackjacks, saps, and walking sticks. However my question deals with the precursor of the modern day telescoping baton, THE SPRING COSH. Since they preform slightly differently than all the previously mentioned devices, does anyone know any specific techniques for deploying them? I seem to recall a section in I think "Get Tough" that dealt with these during WWII. As I recall you would approach an enemy sentry from behind and smack him over the helmet. The spring tip would go over the brow ridge and tag the sentry square in the forehead for an immediate T.K.O. I ask because I recently purchased a couple for my East German militaria collection and am now intrigued.
Remember the ones that were being sold in the U.S. ?
They had weighted tips. They looked exactly like an ASP Expanding Baton but made of SPRINGS!
They were called "The Sippo" & "The Blammo" or something like that?
Another "Stroll Down The Memory Lane Of Off~Beat Weaponry" :biggrin:
I think they are Verboten these days & no longer being sold or made.
I will find an old original advertisment & scan it for this post.
Also...What was the name of that classic Spring Loaded Knife that was being sold in the states for awhile??? :confused:
You loaded the blade into the handle under really intense spring pressure & then pushed the button & the knife blade would go blasting out the handle front & about go right through a 2X4!! :eek: Remember That One? That is another banned fun toy! :silly:
