I’d like to introduce you to my little friend! It’s a polypropylene shaft molded into the shape of a casual walking stick with a round handle. It’s constructed of the same plastic used to make handles for pickaxes. It’s heavy, hard as a rock, and damn near impossible to break. You can now walk around armed without looking like a thug.
If you are disabled like me, but can walk with a cane, this is a great one to have. It doubles as a serious head-knocker. See the video above to erase any doubts you may have about its usefulness as a weapon. Cold Steel makes a wide variety of walking sticks and canes, with a focus on self-defense and weaponry. They sell different models to satisfy even the most discerning martial artists. They even sell cane swords, in case they are legal in your state. I live in California, so I am out of luck. Check their website to see they have a product that meets your needs (or weapons fetish).
The only drawback with this product is that it doesn’t come with a rubber cane tip. That’s fine for outdoor use, but if you’re walking on slick floors you will need to pick one up. I also bought a cane strap with an elastic band on one end to make sure that I don’t drop it.
