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.

HD sword cane
Have bad knees and needed not just a solid cane, but wanted something that could also serve as a protective device if needed. Cane is definitely solid/strong and also serves very nicely as an edged weapon as well. Well finished cane, steel blade is nicely polished and indeed sharp where it should be sharp. Grip/handle comfortable and able to attach cord to it for times when both hands are needed, very convenient to use. Excellent value in all respects. If you need a cane that aids in walking and to protect you as well, this is the cane.

Everything I expected
I received my cane this morning. As expected, within minutes, the O-rings broke. I took the advice of other reviewers and put Gorilla Tape on instead. [I split the tape and wrapped it in three places, doubling the wrap as I did] It works great now. You can hear a suction "pop" as it is pulled out with only minimal effort and it does not rattle at all. I also cut an inch off the bottom with pipe cutters and replaced the plastic end with a rubber one. I do actually need a cane to walk after hip surgery that didn't go as planned and this one is very usable and doesn't look like anything special to advertise what it really is. The reviews were extremely helpful in knowing what to expect. This was my first order from knifecenter but I will definitely be shopping there again in the future.

Some thoughts about the Cold Steel Heavy Duty Sword Cane
I just purchased the Cold Steel "Heavy Duty Sword Cane," (the 100th sword, in my private collection) after watching multiple on-line demonstration videos, about it.. I held a degree of trepidation about buying this somewhat "stodgy-looking" sword cane, because I was (am) *so disappointed* with the quality of Cold Steel's "Aluminum Head Sword Cane"--which, sadly, turned out to be the 'crap,' that Lynn Thompson so fervently tells us in his sales video, that his sword canes, are *not* ( ... compared to his competitors' sword canes)... But, having an "instinct" about the Heavy Duty Sword Cane, I ordered one from the folks at The Knife Center... I have had it for about a week--and to my pleasant surprise, I am beginning to like it--appreciate it--more and more, as the days go by... Yes--as other people have stated, on-line--one of the O-rings, employed to suction-grip the hilt to the thick aluminum shaft, did break-up, with only a couple of hard tugs on the crooked-handle.. which I must caution, that after extensively handling all types of swords, over the past 40 years, the Heavy Duty Sword Cane was initially, the most *difficult* to extract from its "scabbard" (its aluminum shaft)... which in a dire, "threat-situation," can leave you, *dead*... Ironically, the partially disintegrated O-ring (half of it, remains within its deep, circular groove), has made it easier to extract the hilt from the shaft... I am also pleasantly surprised that the finish on this stealthier-looking sword cane ("stealthier"--because of the very fact that it *does* simply appear to be a piece of "medical equipment") , is much *better* than the vulnerable, and *easily* scratched or chipped fiberglass-composite shafts, and aluminum heads, of Cold Steel's "City Stick" and "Aluminum Head Sword Cane"... But, saving the best-for-last-- it is the 24 inch 1055 high carbon steel blade, that has garnered my *admiration*, for what I feel to be, one of the only, true, highly-functional sword cane blades on the world-market, today... This 3/4 inch-wide, stiff-but-resilient, partly double-edged and nicely-finished blade, is not just--as they used to say--a "pig-sticker"... not just a glorified bayonet: it's spear-shaped tip and sharp edges, *will* save your life, if the horrible need ever arises... It is very light, quick and maneuverable, featuring a fairly thick spine, that extends approximately two-thirds the length of the blade's topside, which then transitions into that double edged (eight inch) "coup-de-gras" blow for any opponent wishing you ill-will... What remains to be seen, for me, is just how well the various parts (including the thick, rubberized drag-collar) of the Cold Steel "Heavy Duty Sword Cane," holds-up with everyday use, over a period of time.... But for The Knife Center's price of $89.95--I would be hard-pressed, not to take this bargain-for-the-money, over almost any other sword cane on the international market--some which will literally cost you * ten times* the price, and will not protect you better... The questions to ask yourself, are: "What do I *want* from this product...? Do I simply want a reliable "third leg"...? a staunch medical aid ...? Or do I want a "tool," which will combine the best features of personal stability when walking, with the *most efficient* means of repelling a potential armed-attacker...? The choice is ours... As for me--if the Cold Steel Heavy Duty Sword Cane does indeed last well, and last long, I will be buying two more of them, as "back-ups".
