Cold Steel 88SCFD Heavy Duty Sword Cane - Aluminum Shaft
Cold Steel's design concept for the Heavy Sword Cane was to make a cane that offered significant orthopedic support, and be stylish enough so that it didn't look like a stodgy piece of medical equipment. The Heavy Duty Sword Cane is quite possibly the toughest and widest sword cane ever built! It features an extra strong partial crook handle made from heavy duty nylon, and a 2 mm thick aluminum shaft that's heat-treated for strength. The tapered shaft is capped with a thick rubber ferrule for better traction on slick, icy sidewalks or uneven terrain. The concealed blade is released by quickly pulling on the handle to break the suction of its friction lock. Made from 3CR13 Stainless Steel with a proprietary heat treatment and tempering, it's a hard and resilient blade that's sturdy enough for both cutting and thrusting. This is no mere show piece! This cane conceals a true battle-ready sword, proven in Cold Steel's infamous PROOF videos to make the kind of cuts one would expect from a high quality saber!
It is your responsibility to determine if sword canes are legal to purchase where you live. Absolutely no shipments outside of the United States.

A Word About Cold Steel's Sword Canes
I've been collecting antique, as well as contemporary, sword canes and walking sticks for the past twenty or so years. And lucky for me, they all look the same to my wife, so it's been easy to add one here and there. My budding collection is highlighted by one peculiar English sword cane from the mid-1800's with the most unusual feature of a special repository for poison in the blade. I guess the gentleman who commissioned it long ago felt that if his adversary got away, the poison would finish the job later. Having the appreciation I do for quality sword canes from around the world, I must say that I am more than pleased with these offerings from Cold Steel. Now do not let the great prices fool you into thinking that these are not first class sword canes -- as they easily equal (or even surpass) sword canes that I've spent several times as much for.
