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: Honshu Sword Cane

I have had this defense cane for about 6 months and I have found it to be quality constructed. It is a functional solid cane that supports my 6’4” 260 lbs frame when my knee act’s up. A quick pull of the handle deploys the thrusting spike should one be attacked. The spike is solidly attached to the handle and came pointed fine enough that driving it through a torso shouldn’t require much effort.

The downside is that it has a rattle until you put a small amount of foam rubber into the bottom of the shaft.

This cane is well worth the money!

Review of: Independent Secret Service Sword Cane

Excellent quality. It will Rattle a little. But that’s to be expected. Most sword canes of quality do. I’m a collector of cane, and sword canes, and swords. Most people don’t understand sword canes because they aren’t blade smith and carpenters so there expectations are way off. This is one of the best sword canes out there that you currently can get.

Not a review but I don’t know where to post a question so I’ll post it here: why is the blade sideways? Can the handle be adjusted so that the blade aligns with the hilt?

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: 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: 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!
