Daredevil's Billy Club

Clipped from Wikipedia: Daredevil's signature weapon is his specially-designed billy club, which he created. Disguised as a blind man's cane in civilian garb, it is a multi-purpose weapon and tool that contains thirty feet of aircraft control cable connected to a case-hardened steel grapnel. Internal mechanisms allow the cable to be neatly wound and unwound, while a powerful spring launches the grapnel. The handle can be straightened for use when throwing. The club can also be split into two parts, one of which is a fighting baton, the other of which ends in a curved hook.

In early canon, the Billy Club had a retractable microphone, a miniature tape recorder, and a chamber for firing projectiles.

Fun Fact: Daredevil's Billy Club has been lost or destroyed on more than one occasion:

  • Daredevil #80 lost in New York Harbor and never found.
  • Daredevil #116 destroyed battling Death Stalker
  • Daredevil #122 broken battling Nightwing.
