UCGH5036: Gil Hibben Custom Hook Sword Cane (GH5036)
United Cutlery
The master knife maker Gil Hibben unveils his latest custom designed sword cane. This model is made in China based on his design. A shiny black 36 1/2" shaft features wood construction with high-polish stainless steel accent details. A 14" mirror polished 7CR17 stainless steel tanto blade snaps into the shaft and releases with a built-in blade release mechanism. The blade is completed by a custom hook, mirror polished stainless handle and intricately detailed wire wrappings. The heavy-duty stainless steel head offers a great grip but can also be used as a club for additional self defense. Height is not adjustable.

Great looking, not long-lasting
My father used to collect canes, so when I had knee surgery, I thought I'd take the opportunity to get something unusual. Was pretty impressed with this and got lots of compliments. The blade is not sharp, but that's hardly a problem, I know professional knife sharpeners. The rubber tip is pretty inadequate, but again, a $3 hard rubber tip of the right size was easily found on another site, problem solved. I'm a little surprised at the other posters who seemed to find these to be insurmountable manufacturing failures After five weeks of daily (but not heavy) use, though, the cane was beginning to rattle a bit. There's no way to tighten it. Plus, the button you press to unlatch the sword fits in a very narrow slot you have to press, so any emergency use is a pretty iffy affair. Then after only five weeks -- bang -- the whole latch mechanism popped out. It operates via a pair of tiny springs and tiny bolts on the underside of the button. And although I'm mechanically inclined and have the requisite tools (it would seem), I cannot figure out how to put it all back together. Even if I could, it's a cheap, rickety affair. In short, a handsome piece, but it's hardly to be depended upon as any sort of defensive weapon. It's more likely to come apart in your hands.

Pros: Durability, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: Materials, None
Hook sword is high quality, cane shaft is cheap and too pointed.
Since I bought this as a concealed weapon first, then as a cane to help me temporarily after surgery, I found the Gil Hibben sword is first class quality. Any attempt to use this as a real cane to help with your balance will leave you disappointed. The cane shaft comes to a very sharp point at the end and does more digging into your walking surface and sinking than giving you a stable handle to hold on to while trying to walk. Also, the quality of the cane shaft is no where near the same as the sword and handle, almost as though the shaft was an afterthought. Since I bought it as a weapon first, I rate it a 5, but marrying it to the inferior shaft for concealment gives it a 3, that's why my rating is a 4. You will need to go to Walmart and get yourself a rubber replacement end for the cane if you have any intention of actually using it as a cane.
