Are you referring to your Tonfa or Retractable Baton? Does you Baton extend into a straight stick or into a tonfa-like Baton?

Both of them stay at home. The tonfa is a solid wood/plastic piece whereas the baton is extendable steel.

If I really wanted to carry something I have a one-handed folding knife but I mostly use that as a letter opener; I don't currently need to shank anybody.
Only if you are unfamiliar with the weapon. The "tonfa" is mainly held by the short perpendicular protrusion and used in the way Shuma-Gorath described.

Although free swings are the preferred type of attack for me, butt end strikes, one handed or two handed have their place.
