I bet we could get a number of definitions. Here is mine:
A short club made of [I]solid[I] lead that is larger on the impact end than on the grip. It may be partially or fully covered in leather.
There are spring loaded saps and slappers that are almost always lead shot encased in leather that being as elderly as I am, I would not
call a blackjack but others have in this thread.
When using an impact weapon - like brass knuckles - everything depends on where you hit someone and how much force you put behind it. There are four places on the head you could hit someone coming in and if you measured your force
you could stun them without doing serious harm. There are numerous places on the body that would also stun themusing measured force
without serious damage, and about 6 places where they are going to have permanent problems and a couple where they will die pissing blood for about a week.
