CS88SCFD: 88SCFD Heavy Duty Sword Cane
Cold Steel
We have been intrigued with the potential of sword canes ever since Major Morris Wright used one to grievously injure Jim Bowie in their famous fight on the Vidalia Sand Bar so many years ago. There are few weapons that can be put into action faster than our sword canes. Just give the handle a firm tug and the blade will literally leap into your hand!

Heavy Duty Sword Cane - Aluminum Shaft
Our design concept for the Heavy Sword Cane was to make a cane that offered significant support, and be stylish enough so that it didn't look like a stodgy piece of medical equipment. The result is a very appealing cane with an extra strong partial crook handle made from Grivory, with a black, aluminum shaft that's 2mm thick and heat-treated for strength. The shaft is handsomely tapered and capped with a thick rubber ferrule for better traction on slick, icy sidewalks or uneven terrain. The concealed sword is easily released by a hard, quick tug on the handle to break the suction of its friction lock. It's an extremely formidable sword too, made from 1055 Carbon steel, a little over 24" in length and 5.5mm thick. It's sturdy enough for both cutting and thrusting, with one long cutting edge, a strong sharp point, and a fully sharpened back edge. It's more than enough to take down any attacker, and the heavy aluminum shaft of your cane makes a fine weak hand parrying weapon and a frightfully effective bludgeon in its own right.

Pros: Overall Quality, Materials, Finish
Cons: None
Feels very solid and sturdy, I use it as a cane every day. Does not wobble in the slide and are not skidding with the rubber tip against any surface. It is a little heavy but it has to be that considering the quality and thickness of the metal. I also like that the whole cane is made with a metal tube. Can probably be used as a baton if needed. The blade is not razor blade sharp, like some revues stated, but it is sharp. The tip on the sword edge is very sharp! Be careful when adjusting tour personal height of the sword so you don't take of to much and the cane become to short for you. I had no problems in doing this because I took it in intervals a bit at a time. Nice feeling to have this sword cane as a daily companion, hopefully never needed to be used in self defense.

Additional Notes - Cold Steel Heavy Duty Sword Cane
HI: Now that I have been using my Cold Steel Heavy Duty Sword Cane for several weeks I thought I should add a few additional notes to the review I posted on 25 June right after I received it. In that review I explained how to determine your individual cane length and how to shorten the sword cane if it is too long for you. Since then I have made a couple of other modifications which I think are worth mentioning. Others have noted that the sharp edges of the sword rub against the inside of the aluminum shaft with a metal-on-metal sound when the sword is drawn or replaced. This may not be too important. You may like the sound and the steel sword is harder than the aluminum shaft so the sharp edges are unlikely to be much dulled by rubbing against it. However, if you, like me, prefer a "stealth" draw which cannot compromise the edges of the razor-sharp sword there is an easy and inexpensive way to line the shaft with plastic. Go to the bathroom section of Home Depot or a similar store and buy a length of shower curtain rod cover. It is a thin hard plastic tube split along one edge so it can be compressed to fit into the cane shaft. It will cost about $3.50 and will be more than twice as long as you will need. Insert the tube into the shaft until it rests against the rubber plug at the base of the shaft. Use a pencil to mark where the tube comes out of the top of the shaft. Now pull the tube two inches out of the shaft and mark it again. The second mark should be exactly two inches below the first. Cut the tube cleanly at that second mark with a razor or other very sharp knife. Push the cut tube down into the shaft until it rests against the rubber plug again. The end of the tube will now be two inches below the top of the shaft. This is necessary to clear the two hard O-rings which are set into the lower part of the sword handle just above the blade. The tube will expand against the inside of the shaft and friction will keep it in place. Now the sword will go in and out almost silently with no metal sound. I also added a lanyard to the cane handle. This is easy because there is a hole in the handle just big enough for parachute cord to go through (if the end is first tapered) You can buy lanyards on the Internet but I just used about 2 1./2 feet of black paracord, knotted it to form a wrist loop and trimmed the excess. It looks and works fine and is invaluable when two hands are needed to accomplish a task (like counting change) and you don't want to bother putting the cane down or leaning it somewhere. Regards, Phil

Great Cane
Very strong and sturdy. Just twist and pull and out comes the sword. You can use this as a function cane or self defense both the sword and the can since the cane is just as sturdy. Instead of carrying a Zatoichi with me on hikes and risk being confronted I will just carry the cane and noone will be the wiser.
