Pros: Durability, Finish, Overall Quality, Materials
looks great, works great, and a true value!
My 3rd back injury seriously limited in my range of movement. I've been using my Cold Steel White Wax Wood walking stick to assist me moving around the house. It works perfectly, but living in SoCal, it isn't very outdoor or public friendly. I decided to get a cane and did some research. Once again, Cold Steel delivered with the Dragon walking stick. This is a great looking, fully functional, walking stick. 2lbs feels a little bit heavy but that is negated for its durability, strength and use a potential self defense item. The detail from tip to toe looks amazing. Everything from the head, belly and scales and curvature is very well done. I've seen many depictions of dragons that look like cartoons, but the style on this one is correct IMO. I added a 1 inch tripod base from Amazon and improved its stability and its ability to stand on its own. I also gently sanded the sharp teeth to improve its grip. The grip is large vertically, but still feels good even small hands like mine, Could be a little longer horizontally IMO but it still works. I added a few drops of red paint to the eyes and nostrils to make it uniquely mine and the look now "POPS!" even more! At this price point this was an excellent purchase. If you need a cane, walking stick, or self defense item, this will serve all purposes and you'll be very pleased.
