I have several sword canes, some bought new, some used...this one is much more than I expected for the price. It has heft and a solid feel when blade is locked in, and could be used for defence as is, without presenting the blade. The blade is as advertised with no edge but with sharp tip. With a little sharpening work it could become an attackers worst nightmare. I plan to purchase other items from this company based on quality, ease of ordering and fast delivery. On line business doesn't get any better than this company.

Not perfect. The release mechanism must sometimes need adjustment, and can even then move.
Bought 2, one was run over by a truck, the other the release mechanism broke, the little round stud disappeared, and the blade is now held by friction well enough. So I buy a 3rd, as I am crippled, need a cane, and will not be without a weapon.
A VERY good sword cane, well balanced, with quite the functional head-bopper. Were it not for the fact that the release mechanism will require adjustment, sometimes several times, I'd give this a 5 star.
Well balanced, quick, impresses the ignorant. So, now a spare.

Relatively well made, but not particularly useful for inconspicuous defense. It is easily identifiable as a sword cane and the blade is beyond "butter knife" dull. If it were available with the blade sharpened from the tip to approximately 9" down, it would be more useful.

A Very nice High Quality product!!
I do not hesitate to take it with me when I feel the need for a Self Defense option of a Low Key appearance.
Fit and Finish are Superb!!
