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.

Fix the problem
As many others have correctly reviewed the "O" or "D" rings are of extremely poor quality. They broke the first time I drew the sword. Left unchecked the sword will rattle and easily falls out of the cane body. The easiest repair is indeed wrapping with tape to make a snug fit. Otherwise it works well and is useful as a cane. Its difficult to understand why CS does not address this despite the multiple reviews stating the issue. I will not buy another nor recommend to others and would not buy another. It also raises questions about the quality of other CS products.

Have to give only 4 stars
We purchased this cane for actual use as a walking aide, and we love the self-protection aspect. The cane is very well made, and the sword is the real deal. We are going to take lessons from a self-defense instructor on how to use this for protection in a safe manner. But, I had to give it only four stars because after deploying the sword for the very first time, an o-ring broke in half. Then, another one broke the next time we pulled the sword from the "baton" scabbard. When we contacted Knife Center about this, they told us we had to contact Cold Steel. Where's the customer service. Yes, it is a simple thing, but having had my own retail business, I would have called Cold Steel for my customer. Just saying...in my not-so-humble opinion, the sword was in Knife Center's inventory for a long time, and the o-rings dried up and became brittle.

Utility
Product looks like a utility walking stick but the sting is awesome! Maybe cold steel should make the same with an option of shorter blade as it takes a large action to remove sword and a very sharp shorter blade may be better for the less able!
