KA9406: 9406 TDI Self Defense Walking Cane
KA-BAR Knives
A cane can be a vital defensive tool where traditional weapons are prohibited. The black powder-coated 0.100-thick 5052-H32 aluminum self-defense TDI cane measures 39" and can be cut shorter for fit.

About the Designer
John Benner - Only a 33-year veteran police Lieutenant could truly understand what makes a knife effective for close-quarters defense. While serving as President and Chief Instructor of Tactical Defense Institute, John Benner saw time and time again what he already believed to be true from first-hand experience: In a conflict, fine motor skills deteriorate and gross motor skills are most effective for fending off assailants. Benner then set out to design a low-profile fixed blade knife for law enforcement, military and security personnel that could be drawn quickly and efficiently in times of duress. After more than a year of prototype samples and in-field testing, the Benner-approved TDI knife was put into production. The same basic principles that founded that first knife were incorporated into all future TDI models, which now complete an expansive line of tactical knives.

Ideal cane for support and defense.
Weight compares favourably with a good hickory cane, obviously not as light as the thin adjustable tubular canes found in drug stores. Well checkered at two points the facilitate grip, if the situation should arise where it is called upon for something more dynamic than mere orthopaedic support. I would recommend it be offered in brown, cordovan, or wood-grain finishes as well, to make it appear a little more innocuous.

Conditionally Awesome
I'll start by saying that I am only 20 and by no stretch should I need a cane, but it helps in dealing with an old sports injury. The cane itself is great as a walking aid on most terrains (Ice could be problematic.) I have been using this cane more on uneven walking/hiking trails than in an urban environment, though it does perform well on both. The knurled patches are aggressive and grip well in slick conditions. The shaft is certainly heavier than any wooden cane due to a thick-walled construction. That makes it a great tactical tool, however, some might find it tiresome to walk with. The finish on this item is not hardened and will scuff or chip easily if mistreated.
