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: Windlass Rapier Umbrella

Blade is very thin and could easily bend... However if it serves as protection, I don't think that matters much. Afterall, it's not a toy. Umbrella itself is very sturdy  with metal ribs. All in all I like it.

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.

Very steampunky and cool!  And the triangular blade within is lethal and wicked.  Well made.  Love it.

Review of: Fisted Spike Cane

Another great cane from Windlass. The fist itself is heavy, and would do a good job as a mace type weapon if needed, but pull the handle and you have a nice 3 sided spike in your hand. This cane uses friction retention to keep the sword in the shaft, and seems to be a tight fit. There is not an obvious joint where the handle and shaft meet, which makes it more of a covert self defense cane in my book. Over all, a great cane for the price.

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!

It would be nice if it came  sharp but its easy to sharpen I'm using a fial to sharpen mine you just give it a steep edge because the blade is so thin
