Cold Steel 88SCFH 1911 Guardian 1 Sword Cane - Aluminum Shaft
The ability to protect yourself is one of the main virtues of Sword Canes. The latest of Cold Steel's sword cane offerings, the 1911 Guardian I is rather unique, as it adds a bit of 1911 pistol flare to your personal style. Its handle closely mimics the characteristics of a 1911 pistol grip in terms of size, shape and thickness, and it features thin, pebble grain synthetic grips. If you choose, you can modify your cane to your own tastes, because it can easily accommodate most 1911 pistol grips. Its tough and sturdy shaft is made from seamless 6065 Aluminum with a 3mm wall thickness. It’s heat treated for strength so that it can support heavier loads without breaking. It’s also capped with a custom-made rubber ferrule for extra traction, so it resists slipping or sliding on wet, icy or uneven surfaces. The blade is made from 10mm thick 4116 stainless steel and is heat treated to a hard, spring temper. It will resist bending or breaking, and thanks to its long needle sharp point, will punch a gaping hole in just about any target! Like Cold Steel's other sword canes, the 1911 incorporates a “friction seal” -- a quick tug, and the blade will appear, ready for action.
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 35+ 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.
