I bought this for my husband, at his request. Although he’s almost 71, he does not yet need any help walking. Rather, he chose this as an off the radar self defense device. He loves it and carries it everywhere. He gets self defense tips on using his cane from videos on YouTube.
He searched the net on how to measure the length he needed and trimmed his to the recommended 35’. The rubber toe is screwed on, so he had to drill a new hole for the shortened cane. BTW, the screw is sunken within the toe, so it cannot scratch the floor, etc.
After some use, he felt the cane was still uncomfortable long. Checking his net sites again, one of them warned to include the thickness of the toe in adjusting the length.. My husband says he’ll get around to that soon.
Bill is so happy with his cane, he has endorsed it on both his Twitter and Parler accounts. His counters on those posts show there was a significant number of readers who opened up the Atlanta Cutlery site for this product. Maybe that why their stocks are down to two canes at this writing!
Bill’s advice is to get them while you can!
