Sword cane is a beast when it comes to self defense
16 1/4" 2Cr13 stainless steel blade with satin finish
*This Item Cannot Ship to the Following States: NY, MA, CA
This unassuming sword cane is a beast when it comes to self defense! It offers a strong, partial crook handle constructed of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced nylon composite for a strong, sturdy grip. The 16 3/4" blade is cast from 2Cr13 stainless steel with a satin finish and piercing point for deep penetration. It is very similar in design to United Cutlery's popular "Urban Stinger" daggers, but on a larger scale. The ultradurable, sturdy shaft is built just as well as the handle, making this sword cane virtually indestructible! The end of the shaft also features a rubber tip, making it easy to navigate through icy streets and uneven sidewalks. Download Detailed Instructions PDF
Good cane, nice sword idea but lacking in execution.
Cane: 2.33 lbs when cut to 36" total length. Sturdy enough for 265 lb guy to use on a daily basis around the property as a cane. Blade: Thrusting weapon only with a good sharp point. No edge on the square blade. Does have blood gutters like an epee' but no sharp edge. Blade 16" long + 5.5" of handle length, plus 1.5" of grip. Did have to use some foam to keep the blade from rattling. 3 rubber o-rings provide the seal between the cane and the blade handle so the blade fits well and doesn't come out of the cane. Videos show ability to thrust and penetrate and it will, if no one is defending themselves. --- Grip: As a cane, this is a reverse grip so when held correctly the cane extends downward behind the heal of your hand. The grip does not fit well when trying to hold it like a normal cane with the cane extending downward either center of hand or forward. The grip has aggressive finger groves to improve hold when using the weapon but my fingers, which use XL gloves, don't fit well in the groves which are too narrow. I find myself constantly adjusting the cane grip to find a comfortable hold. It is not a comfortable hold as either a cane or sword. The way the grip is held allows for straight thrust with a lot of force behind it. Great, but that type of grip provides very poor lateral control over the tip of the weapon. Which means any defense moves to knock the blade out of line during the thrust (e.g. by knife or forearm) can't be countered by the grip. Holding the grip like a forward grip with the blade extending between the 3rd and 4th fingers seems to give me the best tradeoff between thrusting force and tip control. I do like the blade idea, the weight, sturdiness and would buy it again, just wish the design was a bit more well thought out. If I was designing it, I would use an actual epee' blade design that has sharp edges but I don't have a good answer for a grip that would provide the necessary control while still being a good cane grip.

Have had to use this a couple of times to defend ourselves against dogs. Both times it took the fight right out of the animal and the owner of the unleashed dogs owners did not want to engage us either, worked well highly recommend.

Not a novelty weapon
This cane is a bit heavier than the more common refugee from the nursing home, but steel will tend to do that. The tip is hard plastic, and will slip out from under you. I threw it away, cut the shaft down to match my old cane (a hacksaw works nicely on this material), and put a one inch rubber cane tip on it. I wrapped the handle with a tennis racket grip. It's everything I expected in a sword cane -- simple, stealthy, easy to draw in a heartbeat if it's ever needed, yet stays closed rather well. A couple of people have picked it up and handed it to me; it didn't raise an eyebrow.

Great customer service and the cane wasn't half bad either.
Actually the cane is amazing. Just got out of the hospital with back surgery and the wife had this waiting for me. Very sturdy and i like the added protection when you are at your most vulnerable. Customer service was great helping to make sure it arrived on time.

I've tried making my own sword canes but nothing ever came close to this sword cane. Beautifully plain looking but strong and surprising light.

One TOUGH SWORD!!!
I received this just today and I was a little disappointed that I didn't have any sharp edges oh, so I'm still keeping it I spent the last 4 hours grinding it down to a sword with a hellacious tip. When I say I spent four hours on the grinding wheel, I had to use that time to break down this piece of Steel. It is almost impossible to bring it to a sword's edge, but I've got some equipment that helped me. This thing can slice paper and of course it can still go through pretty much anything that you want to stab. I am very happy with the sword and also now the improvised sword. This thing is heavy don't be misled. I walked my dog this afternoon and I was tired when I got back and I'm usually not, but the sword was that heavy it wore me out.

It's A Gr8 Cane
My husband is very happy with this cane. Well woth the money and yes it is heavy which we both like about it. He feels very protective with this cane. Mahalo Nui Loa....

This thing exceeded my expectations. Nicely built, no complex locking mechanisms or buttons to find. JUST a baada-bing would take down most attackers, but the blade is menacing. Don't bring a knife to s gunfight. See my video on YouTube Net4Truth USA channel

Nice for the price but it is real heavy. I am 75 years old and it is heavy for me to lift.

Honshu Sword Cane
Pros: Well made. Bought it because of the great price and design feature. Liked the grip Cons: Very heavy for a walking cane, around 3 lbs.. No weight was given in the listing. Shaft is bulky looking.. Cumbersome and hard to handle and walk with for an 85 year old. Would be nice if it were thinner and lighter weight. More of a collector item than a practical cane. I will keep it as a collection.

Nice cane, well made, but the handle is made for small to average hands. It is solid molded nylon, so I used a sanding drum to re-contour the grip. Much better, but could still use a larger handle.

Great cane sword
This cane sword is very well made. The only thing I wanted to do (didn't really have to) was to change the o-rings on the upper shaft so the handle would fit a little more snug. Everyone I showed it to said it was very well made also. And we all like the fact that it is more like a dagger, than a long sword. It has a little rattle as you use it as a cane, but a small o-ring slipped onto the dagger takes care of that. Buy one, you'll love it.

Nice but Noisy !!
Great cane but quite noisy and a little to tall for the average person.
I filled mine with liquid rubber to stop the blade/spike from hitting the sides when walking.
Sad that It needs to be modified before use, especially for as much as I paid for it !!!
Doubt I'd ever buy another or even suggest it to a friend.
Quality does NOT match the price !

My only "Con" which is partially my fault for not reading the description & reviews closer, is that the blade is more of a spike than a blade perse'. That being said, due to it's construction, you could possibly beat someone into submission w/it as well as stabbing through most conventional body armor w/the spike. Changing the tip on the bottom may be preferable as like mentioned in prior reviews, it is hard & prone to slipping. Not terribly bad, as we have hardwood & linoleum floors in our house & I haven't had it shoot out from under me but you need to be aware. Thought I'd buy it as a Just in Case thing as I just had hernia surgery. The handle has indentations/finger grooves on both sides which makes it pretty much ambidextrous. Very satisfied overall. Nice buy.

This is a serious sword cane. Not some $20 wannabee. The construction is excellent, with a super strong outer cane and an amazingly strong and sharp spike. The handle grip is exactly what is needed, as there isn't a guard on the sword itself between the spike and the handle. The spike has four fullers for maximum strength and eight sharp edges leading to the tip of the spike. The only thing I had to do (and I did it within minutes of taking it out of the shipping box) was replace the hard plastic tip at the base of the cane with a rubber tip. The hard plastic tip that came with it had absolutely no traction at all. It just slid on hard surfaces. I just took one off of one of my old canes and problem solved in minutes. If your looking for a sturdy cane and would like the added benefit of a protective spike, I highly recommend this one.

Honshu Sword Cane
This is hands down the finest contemporary sword cane I have ever purchased! Having owned well over 6,000 canes in my 40 plus years of collecting canes I can say the vast majority of the sword canes offered for sale today are to put it nicely garbage. This Honshu sword cane is an exception. The high tech materials used in its construction make it incredibly strong and the quadrangular armor piercing blade is unique among modern sword canes. This cane was not intended to slice; it was intended to puncture soft and hard armor creating a devastating wound. The original square blade concealed in a cane was used by the Germans in the early 16th century as far as we know. I have owned many and this is the equal if not superior to those ancient innovative canes. This is a "must have" for your collection!

This thing means business!
This might not be a "sword" blade, but this spike on this Honshu sword cane is incredibly sharp and I would hate to be on the business end of it. I tested it on 1/2" particle board and it penetrated with hardly any effort. Not to mention it just looks awesome! 5 stars ALL THE WAY.

Not a sword, but an amazing weapon and cane
It's not a sword, more like a sword breaker, it doesn't have an edge. It's solid and works great as a cane. I'm 6'1" 220 lbs and it supports me very well. Plastic foot easily replaced with a rubber foot. Definitely recommend for EDC.

Mostly Beefy & Badass
I looked a many sword canes. I wanted one with a blade. But after looking at all the variables and construction, I chose the Honshu. It is heavy, sure. But it feels solid to walk with. Gives a good foundation. No blade, but the spike is very formidable. Easier to jab than to slash anyway. The entire unit seem indestructible in a defence situation. I did cut a bit off for cane to fit me. And yes...lose THAT crap plastic tip and replace it with a rubber tip. 1 inch inside diameter.
