Pros: Durability, Finish, Overall Quality, Materials
Awesome! Heavy duty n Excellent buy.
Hello, just got my cane and was impressed. The blade is ok, nice length, nice edge and sturdy. Hope I don't need to use it but it'll be there if I do. Cane itself is 37.5 in - same as old cane but heavier than my old cane(which I paid $29.95 for n have used it for years) and the shaft is 1 inch, old one is 3/4 in, all in all I like that feel, I've spent far more on lesser quality canes. Think a Sharisaya(neat but not actually stealthy) type cane/walking stick, they are horrible to get the blade out. On to address a few issues and some remedies/preventive maint. As far as the plastic tip goes, am thinkin a 1 inch crutch tip with a 1 in washer inside(to prevent metal cane shaft cutting through it) no more possible slippage n cheap fix. Don't want the blade rattling and getting dull so the idea for shower curtain rod cover(great idea) is cheap, doable and easy, am going to do it also right away. Now the hand grip, my old one is 4.5 inches you can wrap your fingers around, CS cane is 4 in of which 1.5 in is directly above the shaft so you can't wrap your fingers around it, making it only 2.5 in wrappable(?). It still works for me but took a little getting used to. An idea for Cold Steel, make it a T handle, would work great n get good wrappage(?). To camouflage it I'm thinking blue or purple swirls pattern on the shaft like my old cane and maybe a 4 point tip/bottom for winter slippage here in iLL and it could stand up by itself. Cold Steel keeps improving their products and I'll keep buying them. I also have their Dragon head cane. At 39.5 inches tall(a foot taller n you might be able to use it as a a crutch) I need to grow or something and it's really rough on the hand. Hack saw n file could fix all that. Kinda like walking with a 2 X 4 and very intimidating. Will definitely be coming back for more at KnifeCenter.com. Take Care.
