Next month I am planning on investing in a "Night Watchman" Heavy Duty Sword Cane (SK5 Steel)

BudK has some nice "Night Watchman" Heavy Duty Sword Canes with blades made from SK5 steel (1080 High Carbon composition). These are not cheap imports, but real metal canes with a high-quality cutlery blade inside that can be pulled at a moment's notice. (25" of blade can dismember, decapitate and run through an opponent on demand). All this is accomplished while posing as an innocuous walking aid. (It serves quite well in that capacity too).

Does anyone else have one of these?
I remember when I learned about sword canes. It was in Hannibal, MO at the office of Mark Twain. Cane pistols, too. The idea fascinated me.
What's the legality of a sword cane?


TSA: Woman's cane concealed sword at Myrtle Beach airport

They're kinda cool and all, but they are far from legal in Oregon (that said, I do have a Harvey's at work for sale). I'd almost rather have the cane with the built in flasks
Myrtle Beach airport security is odd.

The Sherrif Deputies have near on cows if you spend too much time unloading curbside (saying farewells & such). When there's NOBODY else there...

Meanwhile PDX has cars sitting stacked curbside & all the way down th ramp....


I also would be worried about the legality of the sword cane.
I understand your point Captain O about : "wouldn't it be better to face a weapons charge than be dead in the street."
But if you had to use it ... that weapons charge is another legal and expensive headache and potential jail time.

I like the idea of a stout walking stick / hiking staff , less hassle all around and can be every bit as lethal if needed ... But do as you wish and good luck to you.
