The new Honshu Sword Cane from United Cutlery is not your typical, crotchety old walking cane. This cane grants you discreet, dependable and effective self defense while maintaining a stylish and innovative appearance. The state of the art shaft and handle are constructed of virtually indestructible injection molded fiberglass reinforced nylon, providing rattle-free balance and performance. World renowned weapons expert Kit Rae designed the handle of this cane to be gripped like a tonfa, the potent martial arts thrusting weapon. This unique handle design allows the wielder to thrust the spike with uncanny accuracy and power. It is the only cane on the market designed exclusively with telescopic blade access technology that eliminates the hassle and frustration of traditional push-button sword canes while also preventing any accidental spike unsheathing. Most importantly, the Honshu sword cane is equipped with a super-sharp 16 3/4” stainless steel spike that was designed for maximum penetrating abilities. The menacing appearance of this spike alone is sure to frighten any attacker into a retreat. A slip-free hard rubber toe allows you to conquer uneven terrain with confidence and the shaft can easily be shortened to the proper height for any user. Whether you are looking for a stylish walking companion or for a dependable self-defense device, the Honshu Sword Cane is guaranteed to get the job done.
