Description
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.

I don't see how it could be improved
As a 2nd degree black belt in a style that has two sword katas I have seen and used a lot of swords over the past 38 years with most being little more than junk or wall decoration. This cold steel cane sword is the real deal. I have been in law enforcement for 23 years and would not hesitate to take this weapon into harms way. Warning, the preserving oil the blade is shipped with STINKS !!! After inspecting the sword, drawing it a few times and getting a feel for it I put it away as someone knocked on the door. It was my friend and when he came into the room where the sword was in he asked if I had just got a cat.

Pretty close to awesome
I am disabled by back problems and legitimately use a cane. I always wanted a sword cane, and when I finally had a reason to get one I jumped at the chance. This item did not disappoint! The sword itself came VERY sharp, surprisingly sharp, and is made out of good carbon steel. Actually wielding it is a little awkward, not quite enough weight in the handle, but, it's a cane, so I think it would be rather difficult to make it handle like a real sword. It is still possible to make nice cuts, although it is more of a stabber than a slicer being so thin. It does appear to be an innocent cane, as long as nobody else picks it up. It's weight is definitely an indicator that something about it is unusual, but I don't find it too heavy to use. It actually creates a nice pendulum effect, and at least for me does not create any undue fatigue. It was a bit too long, but there was plenty of room to cut a couple of inches off the tube with a regular hacksaw. The shaft also doubles as a blunt weapon for parries and blocks and is quite sturdy. The rubber tip does not stand up to regular use, but I had no trouble ordering a regular rubber cane tip in the proper size. It's a little wider than the ones I generally found in stores, but the internet provided. The two rubber O rings that keep the sword friction fit onto the shaft broke rather quickly, but Cold Steel was quick to replace them at no charge and I alleviated the problem by using a touch of fluoronated grease. Not too much, or it will slide too easily out of the shaft. All in all I find the price very fair for the quality. It is not fancy looking, but is very utilitarian which is more important to me as a daily user.

Nice
Looks good, works great as an actual cane, discrete. I can carry this legally, that may not be true for everyone. Confidence is being prepared.
