I was wondering where to buy a baton? I have heard of Peacock's but are there any else?

Do you mean a military, or an actual baton?

Just use Peacocks if your marching baton. It's a great store that sells low and provides quality products and personal responses to individual problems. I've used them for all my Dm'ing needs and would recommend them to anyone.

I would like a military baton that, the shaft thickness is the same as the military signal baton, but the bulb of the traditional baton. I have seen them before, recently, but I cannot find them anywhere.

When you say "traditional baton", do you mean mace or military? If you mean mace, I think you may be talking about American signal. However, if u mean traditional military baton, you may be speaking of a cane.

The baton which you are speaking of is a Jemm. Great baton, sturdy as nuts. Too bad they don't make it anymore. You can try talking to some of the Arcadia people that did L-Patterns back in the days 2004. If the price is right, they may sell.
