Blackjacks & SapsBoston Leather Sap / blackjack is for law enforcement use only. It is a small, easily-concealed club consisting of a leather-wrapped lead weight attached to the end of a leather-wrapped coil spring or rigid shaft, with a lanyard or strap on the end opposite the weight. Materials such as lead, steel and leather are used to construct these weapons, but the base design is of a soft covering over a dense weighted core. A sap has a flat profile as opposed to the cylindrical shape of the blackjack

The weapon works by storing kinetic energy in the dense core during the swing, then spreads the impact over a larger surface area via the covering so as to avoid lacerating the skin and lessening the chance of breaking bones. In this way, the blow is intended to be felt as a "jarring" impact that is painful and/or numbing. When directed at the head, it works by concussing the brain without cutting the scalp. This is meant to stun or knock out the subject.

Blackjacks and Saps are used by law enforcement due to their low profile and small size, and their potential to knock a suspect unconscious. However, blows to the head are also easily fatal or can cause permanent damage, and they have since become less common equipment.
