Sword Canes

What is better than a simple walking cane? Canes with swords! Sword canes have been used throughout history and are often featured in TV and movies by villains and heroes alike. Dr. Watson carries one in the latest incarnation of Sherlock Holmes to hit the screens. Batman Begins features one. Even frontier gamblers and many others carried these tools discretely. Although laws vary and may make them tough to carry they are still wonderful curiosities to own.

The sword cane or stick as it was first known was a popular fashion accessory for the wealthy during the 18th and 19th centuries. They varied in size of blade and decoration from short stabbing blades to rapier size swords. However during this period, it was becoming unacceptable in social settings to openly carry a sword, even though there were still aristocrats routinely trained in the gentlemanly art of swordsmanship and dueling who wished to go armed for self-defense. Rarer were swords concealed in ladies' walking sticks and parasols, as it was even less socially acceptable for a lady to carry a sword, or gasp, publicly admit that she knew how to use one!

Soon after their introduction, other items found their way into canes and became popular. Instead of a blade, these could hold telescopes, compasses, flasks known as tippling sticks for alcohol and even lock pick sets. There were even some with guns which proved impractical.

Today’s sword canes are elegant, functional and can save your life if need be. There is a confidence that comes from having a good blade at your side and we have many to choose from. From Victorian era London and Jules Verne to modern day designs and materials like high carbon steel and aluminum you’ll find that perfect accent to your historical outfit or daily carry.

Review of: Gambler’s Sword Cane

This was an AWARD winning gift !!!! It was worth the wait . It was back ordered for several months, and the company was amazing , keeping me updated . My husband was ELATED when we had opened it. He actually had forgot that he saved the magazine, for gift ideas !!  He had flagged the page and had it circled ! He has a cane collection, and said this is the " GREATEST" of them all !!! What a HIT !! He just recently retired ( 65) and it came in after his birthday and closer to Christmas !!   THANK YOU ATLANTA CUTLERY for being my hero !!!

Review of: Victorian Sword Cane

I like a lot of things about this sword cane, but was very disappointed that the edges were not sharpened.  I will probably keep it that way, leaving it only useful for thrusting.  I would have been willing to pay a sharpening fee, if given that choice.  Other than that, it seems attractive and well made.

Review of: Knob Sword Cane

Very solid, well made sword cane. Impressive looking and a bit on the heavy side but a great piece to be used mainly as a prop for a costume. Very happy.

Review of: On Her Majesty’s Service Sword Cane

Very nice, good lock-up. I chose to sharpen the blade (it is made for thrusting, no slashing), and it took sharpening well.

Review of: Knob Sword Cane

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.

Review of: Gambler’s Sword Cane

The quality of this sword cane is a lot better than I expected. The friction retention is much better than the Windlass push button lock mechanism they employ on their other canes. The blade is very pointy, will do the job if needed. The detail on the blade and handle is superb and elegant. The only issues I have, and only minor issues, the hidden dice rattle a bit, but placing something inside with the dice can remedy that, and the cane is heavy. The blade and handle are heavy, but that doesn't bother me much, but some it might. Overall, I think this cane is incredible!

This is an excellent addition to your traveling companionship. If all you have gotten threw with is this, then you have the edge. Strong ,Flexable ,and a great way to stay dry ... I rate this 10 STARS **********. It is something you would pray for not only in the land of British Royalty ,where it would be totaly custom ,but any where ,for there is not one weatherperson on key , So before you spend $$$ on crap you cannot get throught customs ,stay dry with this "peace" of art and fell like you can make a differance in case there is a fallout that you would like to take care of!!!
GOD SPEED..........

Review of: Sword Umbrella - ACC Patented Design

Wow! This is incredible! Going outside I've got an enormous boost of self confidence knowing I've got a strong, sturdy blade with me. My wife doesn't want to carry pepper spray with her everywhere but an umbrella doesn't stick out at all and I feel much better knowing she has some way to defend herself should she need it.
