No. 1 Flyswatter

This flyswatter is a conversation starter for any house, boat, pool, or barn gathering.

Here’s a flyswatter for the person who has everything. This is our original 31-hole model. Handmade American oak handle with leather lanyard and bridle leather paddle. 20.5″ long. Brass engraving plaque. Substantial enough for the occasional wayward hornet or bumblebee.

Personalized with three initials (First, Middle, Last) on brass plate.

Handcrafted in Lynnville, TN USA.

  1. 21 years ago my Mom gifted me the #1 flyswatter for Christmas. She passed in 2007. To this day, it is my favorite gift of all time. I am 68 years old. I use the swatter when needed. It is a cruel weapon: in the hands of a trained fly-killer, the flyswatter is brutally effective… and much more romantic than a zapper. Thanks Colonel for the creating my favorite toy of all time.


  2. The No. 1 flyswatter has been my go-to holiday gift for years! I’ve never seen so much joyful laughter as I have when watching the faces of folks opening the box [included, along with a cloth cover] to find a personalized leather flyswatter. It’s vaguely ridiculous, yet completely useful. The swatter works equally well on flies, bloodthirsty Louisiana mosquitos, nosey neighbors, and recalcitrant husbands – a perfect item to keep around the house.


  3. I love my No.1 Fly swatter. I teach Conceal Carry Classes and use this as a correction tool if a student misses an exam question.


  4. This is the finest flyswatter I has ever seen. Worth every cent. Thank you.

  5. My husband loves this fly swatter, and so do I! I got it for him for our four year anniversary, (leather is the material) and we use it all the time. It’s not flimsy, so one swat is all it takes. He broke the handle getting a little too “wasp swatting happy” and we wrote and asked if they sold replacement handles, they told us to ship it back and they would repair for free–that’s exactly what they did and shipped it promptly back to us! Thank you Colonel Littleton Company!! You have customers for life!! The Rogers Family


  6. The No. 1 Fly Swatter is just that. It’s number one in my mind and it delivers a good smack. I have a couple more of these in mind as Christmas gifts.

  7. Leave it to the Colonel to make such a stylish fly swatter! I purchased this for my husband who usually keeps one close at hand during our hot Mississippi summers. Now he can “enjoy” that job of “swattin’ those pesky flies”. Thanks for such a wonderful line of products!

  8. I received one of these FLY SWATTERS from my son. I have it hanging on the door. It is so nice I am not certain if I will use it or not. I purchase three items from THE Col. the WRITING DESK, THE BACK SCRATCHER, and THE FLY SWATTER for gifts. They were each engraved deep and worth the extra cost. The leather on it is thick and nicely done. I will be buying more of these for gifts. Everything is done so well and remember they are MADE IN AMERICA!

  9. There’s a reason this is listed No.1 It is the best fly swatter ever! Not only does it hold up well but it’s handsome as well. When I think of all the money I wasted on those flimsy plastic ones, this beautiful piece of work will last a lifetime

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
