Sap Cap Packs a Blackjack Into a Black Hat

Illustration for article titled Sap Cap Packs a Blackjack Into a Black Hat

The Sap Cap isn't just a logo-less baseball cap. It's also a blackjack, one of those weighted leather weapons private eyes used to get socked with all the time back in the 1940s.

The bill is meant to be held like a handle, and the crown of the cap is heavily weighted, in case you want to bust some skulls but don't have any pocket space for a normal blackjack. It's not really clear what's actually providing the weight; apparently it's a "unique material that is 110% the density of lead and will not rust," which is thoughtful, because a rusty baseball cap is a dead giveaway that something weird is going on.

i've got a workaround for this, my favorite hat is a driving cap that has a pocket on the front/back depending on how you wear it. in that pocket is a full ounce of silver. i even asked cops about doing that. it's a keepsake for me and can double as a weapon, but it's intent is not as such. i've been reading the laws refering to dangerous weapons here. yep, it doesn't fall into the definitions.
