Jackblade

The jackblade is a brawling weapon constructed as an oversized and elongated blackjack with one or two shallow blades protruding across the "head" of the weapon. The jackblade can be used as either a slashing or impact weapon. More flexible than a blackjack, and sometimes lengthened by the addition of thick leather straps, the jackblade is sometimes employed in two weapon combat. Masters of the weapon use a rotation of the wrist to keep the weapons in a constant blur of motion, snapping the weapon forward to inflict shallow gashes on the limbs or faces of their targets.
