Pros: Overall Quality, Durability, Finish
THE Defensive Walking Cane!
Don't get me wrong, I love my Cold Steel (double edged) Sword Cane. But, going through spots like a walk through metal detector and check points make me a bit nervous with it, ha ha! this Ka-Bar cane is awesome! The deceptively larger hook is just that-as I showed my wife when she asked how it could be used-it smoothly hooked the back of her knee before she realized it. It is made for a fast take down assist. The deeply knurled areas on it make for great purchase, and the weight is very solid and stout-not your drug store cane, as my physical therapist noted! There is an edge to the end of the hook that could make a slashing wound with force, and for routine walking it is second to none. The rubber tip is of great quality, as is the entire cane. I would rate this as tops for any friend or family needing a cane and for the advantage of a serious striking defensive weapon, and learning to hook limbs is easy with it-such as dropping the thug who just knocked you down. If my Mother ever needs one, this is the cane I will get her, and some instruction. Buy it-there is no chance of being disappointed!
