Ninja Nate Custom Wood Working prides itself on creating beautiful custom, handmade Cocobolo wood batons and wood police batons made from quality wood and by skilled hands. We also have display stands to display your beautiful wood baton, click here to view our display stands.
Within the last several years, Cocobolo has become a dwindling resource and its price and availability have become threatened. It is a resource that has become abused because of its high value and beauty. It is for these reasons that as of June 12th, 2013 it was placed on, CITES Appendix II, a restrictive Government list for the importing of named species. Since International trade of Cocobolo would now require a specific export/import permit, prices will increase as a result of a decrease in supply and an increase in demand. I work with responsible suppliers dedicated to legal importing and responsible reforestation practices, but even their abilities to continue business are threatened. Because of these issues, my Cocobolo line of batons, which are of display quality, will be sold for retirement gifts, and the discriminating officer that just has to have the BEST, and the pricing will reflect this.
I have researched alternatives, such as Bocote and Granadillo, which provide excellent baton characteristics. I have added these woods to my selection menus as options in lieu of the Cocobolo. My pricing will stay the same since I will be able to acquire these woods at the same price and provide the same beautiful and functional baton that I always have.
