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.

EDC cane
The cane is my EDC! I have used one of these for 4 years. Had a problem which I expected. Cold steel sent me another. Guaranteed for life, of course inspection is done for abuse. I need a cane this is real. Excellent! Attractive as a cane alone. For the price this cannot be beaten. Wanted to have some self defense, can't fight anymore. Retired Marine! Blade is full shank into the handle. Excellent steel, 1055C for most swords to use. Height measure cut is easy. Directions come with the sword.

Excellent tactical Sword cane
The cane looks exactly like any walking stick in CVS or Walmart, unlike the other sword canes to tell everyone that s a sword. It's sturdy and doesn't make noise. I didn't test the blade, but there are lots of YouTube reviews about the sharpness of this product. Lastly, KnifeCenter has the best price I ever found. Thanks

The "smell" from hell
I purchased the cane as an Orthopedic transition from weeks of crutch use (that was not only painful but would knit your armpit hair into braids that rival the Swiss miss hot chocolate chick). As a cane it serves its role (turns you from a bipod into a tripod) . The materials used in (as well as the construction of) the blade are purposeful to its intended use. Grinds are symmetrical (but wavy). Sharpness is esoterica and individual to each purchaser, mine was not shaving sharp. The design as previously reported (hither and yon) has area’s in need of tweaking. The often touted shower curtain rod cover as a sheath liner/condom was installed to fix the telltale blade/sheath “tink” when my cane tip hit any hard flooring surface off angle. On my iteration, the modification did little, to nothing to muffle the blade tip bounce. The insertion of the shower curtain rod cover as a sheath liner does have merit, if only to protect the supplied edge from contacting the inside of the aluminum cane/sheath body. The oxidized surface of aluminum sheath can be hard on the sharpened edges when you un-sheath and re-sheath the blade. My fix for blade interface comes with an unintended consequence. It helps to eradicate the legendary “Funk” that from emanates from the sheath at every blade pull. A stink that makes a burning car tire extinguished in a septic tank smell like a breath of fresh air. The process begins with removing the cane tip. The recommended method of working it off with your fingers/thumbs was a fail. A douche of boiling water poured into the aluminum cane body and a soak in a coffee can half full of boiling water for 10 minutes loosened the tip enough to be forced off with an oak dowel slid inside the cane body. The manufacturer glued a poorly designed standoff inside the cane body in an attempt to capture and quiet the sword tip and that structure needs to be removed. My hack/fix is simple. I cut the locking end from 12 inch nylon cable ties. You will need around 50 or so (depending on the particular thickness of the cable tie purchased). The cut ends are bundled together and tied with a constrictor knot using bow serving thread. The assembly looks like the bristles on a shaving brush. The shower curtain cover mod is trimmed to length and inserted into the cane body. The cable tie mod/assembly (bristles first end) is inserted 1 inch past the bottom of the cane. The empty space was filled with hot glue. When the blade is inserted the blade tip is held away from contacting the wall of the cane body by the long bristles (if you will) of the cable tie assembly. A small twist after insertion of the sword will help also support and isolate the sword tip. A chamfer is needed at the inside edge of the sheath opening to help with wear your O-rings. I cut mine with valve grinding compound applied to the peen end of an appropriately sized ball peen hammer. The cane shaft was twisted on the peen end (upside down to mitigate the entry of crap to the cane body) until the wall thickness was reduced by 3/4. The chamfer allows a gentler transition for the O-rings. When the sword is unsheathed. The aluminum cane body can be used as non-lethal thin walled truncheon/escrima stick (bad idea). If the chamfered sheath is held at the cane tip end and soft tissue anatomy is targeted. If you thrust the cane body with the force of a punch. The chamfered end has a cookie cutter quality and potentially could extract a 1 inch skin divot with every contact. My mod to address the slick round sword pommel is to apply shrink on tubing that is used for grips on salt water fishing rods. One last tip, lubricate your O-rings with Renaissance wax and leave as applied (do not wipe off).
