A Great looking, functional cane
Hi, I read the other feedback on this carbon fiber cane with the aluminum handle. Now I am wanting to add my two cents. I purchased the same Cold Steel Cane 5 years ago and I did all the very same things the other person that left feedback did, like I shortened mine to fit my height, added a stainless washer & a new rubber foot. I take it everywhere I go as I am disabled. It is a strong, functional, sharp looking cane. The polished carbon fiber, the polished to a mirror surface ball handle (handle is solid aluminum). The head swivels and I like that. The ball handle & long thin blade stay put. I have never had the handle & blade come out of the carbon fiber tube. You can use the cane head in a forward thrust motion (using to hands on the carbon fiber tube) and it becomes a non-lethal impact defense weapon. I would never hold the carbon tube and swing it like a bat! This is a well made item! I have tried polishing the blade, and it's so hard I don't get any black on my polish rag. There was a mall shooting a few miles from here. The shooters gun did not fire at first. The people sat there for 30 seconds while he figured out how to fix it. Then he started shooting. I will not be a victim. If ONE PERSON would of had this cane, and taken action, those 6 people would still be with us. That incident REALLY pushed me to purchased this cane. Just in case as a last resort! Good luck to you. By.
