After a Year of Use
Well, I was already using this a year, then saw a leg surgery for two broken bones and a split ankle, and an eight inch titanium plate put in my leg for, yep, a simple fall at home from a medicine reaction and blackout. The cane really became even more vital after the crutches could be set aside. My 6', 300 lb, already large frame body has had no problem leaning on it, the handle is great for that. The original SINGLE WRAP OF GORILLA TAPE, replacing the O rings, has held up just fine. I like to be proactive, not wait for the repair need to happen. The double edge has remained razor sharp, despite my apparent need to touch up edges already well honed, ha ha! During the recovery, all the heavy leaning to the cane was done with no problems at all, despite the ankle's unsteadiness. I suppose that if I were to change anything at all, I would make the same shape handle, but with an all stainless steel material. Great product from Cold Steel, once again!
