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.

Cold Steel Heavy Duty Sword Cane
I have always wanted sword cane but could never justify it until, after a recent TIA, my doctors told me to use a cane while I was recovering. I looked over various sword canes on the Internet and found that they were just toys or fashion accessories. I needed one that would reliably support my full weight, with an effective sword (not just a short spike), easy to get into action and, very important, did not look like a weapon. The only one that matched my requirements was the Cold Steel Heavy Duty Sword Cane/ It was available from a number of vendors but Knife Center had the best price, under $100. Many of the toys and fashion accessories cost three times as much. I was delighted when it arrived. It is just as advertised, It looks just like an orthopedic cane with nothing to indicate that it is anything else. It is very strong and I do not hesitate to put my full weight on it. It does not rattle at all. The sword is the real thing, long, strong and razor sharp. I am very careful whenever I draw it. It is a very dangerous weapon. There is nothing of the toy about it. NOTE: I live in Florida and have a concealed weapons permit, which is necessary to legally carry a sword cane in this state. Like a handgun the sword must not be displayed in public except in an emergency. Next to a handgun, there is no doubt in my mind that this sword cane is the most effective weapon that can legally be carried concealed in public. It is evident that Cold Steel read the early reviews of this item and took steps to improve it. I have had no problems at all with the O-rings. Just lightly lubricate them when necessary. The sword is held firmly in the heavy aluminum shaft but draws easily if you twist sword and shaft in opposite directions as you pull the sword out. There is a rubber sleeve glued into the lower part of the shaft to prevent the sword from rattling. You cannot hear a thing when you shake it. At 37 1/2" the cane was 1 1/2" too long for me when I got it. My cane length is 36". It might be right for you if you are tall. To determine proper cane length stand up normally and put the rubber cane tip on the floor. The handle should come up to your wrist. I phoned Cold Steel and asked how to best shorten it. They told me to remove the rubber tip (it is glued on but can be worked off easily) and cut off as much as necessary from the lower shaft, then replace the tip. You can do it with a hack saw, but I had a machinist friend cut it with a band saw. It took only a few seconds. Don't worry about the rubber sleeve. Just cut right through it. Then go to your hardware store and buy a fender washer which will just fit into the rubber tip. When you replace the rubber tip you will find that the shaft is a little too small to hold it on firmly. Just wrap a few turns of scotch tape around the lower shaft to snug it up. The tip will cover the tape; it will not be visible. The fender washer will prevent the cut edge of the shaft from damaging the rubber tip. That's it. You will love it. Just don't whip it out in public unless you want to be arrested. This is the real thing. Phil .
