Sheepdog Woodworks wood batons....

Any forum members ever buy or carry the Sheepdog Woodworks wood baton?
The website looks impressive. It's a custom/one man shop so delivery of these impact weapons takes several weeks/months but the prices aren't super high compared to ASP or PR-24 type batons. $89-110.00 USD range(05/08/2014 prices).
A recent gun press magazine for law enforcement/armed professionals stated more cops are moving back to traditional wood type batons over the expanding/collapsible versions(ASP).
I have not packed a baton since the early 1990s, as a lower enlisted MP, so I'm a bit out of the game.
A high end wood night-stick or "billy club" wouldn't hurt to carry on some security posts. It's not ideal but could be used in limited conditions that may require "less lethal" force.
The magazine article listed a few other popular LE designs but the "Sheepdog" model looks decent for most uses.

Sorry for the necro post, but my enthusiasm for his work provoked me.

I have 2 if his sticks, one full sized stick resides on my side of our bed, the other a custom baton, is my frequent silent companion in my comings and goings. Absolutely gorgeous cocobolo, can't speak of his work highly enough.
Recommended without reservation.

Regards, Jim

I would think ipe, jatoba or lignum vitae would be be better choices than cocobolo.

Impact batons, night-sticks.....

The use of ASPs & wood night sticks came up in another forum post.
I like the Sheepdog Woodworks style but have seen a few others.
The Harris Magazine; Guns & Weapons For Law Enforcement had a detailed look at the return of wood/old style impact weapons by US law enforcement officer & private security.

I like the 21" size. I may buy a Sheepdog Woodworks night-stick but more for the collector value than duty use.
The idea of adding it to my duty belt or having it for some security posts is comforting though, .
