I’m wanting to buy a cane… fighting cane.
The following is no endorsement. Just me Googling and listing what I find. I have no direct experience with any of these products… yet. I’m hoping to find someone to buy a good cane from.
All I want is something simple. Wood cane, of a strong hard wood that can take a beating (e.g. oak). Crook neck/handle. I’d like the opening to be “straight” (no crook going inwards and closing the opening off). Keeping it very simple so it blends in; think: can I take this onto an airplane? That I can use as an actual walking cane, but can use for self-defense purposes as well.
I just found this website, simply enough: walking canes. Lots of great selection, but unsure of the fitness for the purpose.
I do see a lot of the same canes listed at the 3 above sites. Not 100% overlap, but a decent amount.
In the end, wood is wood. If it’s oak, it’ll be strong. It’s then a matter of diameter and things like the size of the opening to ensure it can properly hook onto things.
This looks like a small-time shop doing their own thing: Kentucky Walking Sticks.
Hrm…. most other things I find are crap like umbrella canes, sword canes, rattan canes (I like rattan for my staffs, but not for my cane… too much flex to support my weight). I guess my Google-Fu is weak.
If you have any good suggestions or outlets for quality canes, please comment and let me know.
