I read the reviews here, and the three year old ones on BUDK, and I was expecting a DIY cane project. I was pleasantly surprised when I got my cane, the ball was on tightly, the blade was sharp enough that it only took a few passes with a sharpener to get it where I wanted it. The rubber foot so far has stood up to three days of walking. I put some foam rubber in the bottom and the blade doesn't rattle now. I would encourage people to buy this cane now, I think they learned from the bad reviews and made a better product, or better quality control.
Couple things to know about this before buying;
Shipping: I live in Canada, the item took 2 months to reach me, about one month of that time it was simply "Processing". Seemed a little bit extensive but it did get here.
As a cane; Not good. I've had it for about 6 days now, and the round top has already come off. Its attached to the rest of the cane by a small piece of wood with glue on the inside. Just being used as a cane, and being picked up and walked around with holding onto that part it has fallen off. As a functional cane then; would not recommend.
As far as the blade goes; The blade is excellent quality, hand made, and feels very sturdy and reliable. It fits well into the rest of the cane, and is well-balanced as well.
Overall verdict; Useful for things like cosplay, and maybe one or two excursions, but the pommel falling off so quickly was disappointing. I would send it back but if its going to take about half a year to get back to them and back to me its not really worth it. Overall decent buy though, especially for the price.
good cane but the blade inide came dull,the most dull ive ever seen its going to take forever to sharpen
I got this cane and I must say that I'm not disappointed nor impressed in what I received. With a little work this could be a nice low cost cane. As others have said the knob was coming off, which is a good thing, I found rust inside the handle and also in the shaft. The blade is nicely made, shaped like a katana blade but smaller scale. The cutting edge of the blade just doesn't exist on mine. I have seen sheet metal from metal shops that's as sharp. So if you don't have a sharpener with the tungsten carbide plates you'll want to get one. The shaft of the cane reminds me of a metal table leg the way it is tapered, and the blade rattles badly when inside. I plan on keeping this and giving it the upgrades it needs to be the nice thing it has the potential to be.
As again the wood head will fall off or rub the paint away , the rubber end will break off or out, but with a lot of love and care you can build this into a lovely tool, just don't use it as a golf club, darn little brothers
I ordered this to make myself feel safe on my daily commute as it is through a bad part of town and muggings are a thing to be worried about. I picked this one because most of the sword canes on here seem more to be dagger canes with very short blades. This one is a good length and will be reasonably sharp with a bit of work (I wouldn't expect Excalibur) but all in all I'm very happy with the blade. The cane itself is alight. I'm ordering a replacement rubber stopper because this one has shredded after a single day walking and the black ball needs to be glued on, but it is an inconspicuos and good sword cane for a great price too!
Received my a few weeks ago, the ball end was of but some locktite glue fixed it.The Blade and overall construction is well done and balanced, very impressed.
Had one for a short time, then gave it to my father. The old neighbourhood is not what it used to be, and many seniors in the area have taken to carrying broom handles and even ski poles when they go out. Giving dad this just looked better. Due to the size of the blade, it is heavy. It's strong, and sturdy enough to use as a day to day service cane, the only problem being the ball on top came off, so dad popped it back on and put a screw into it to keep it from coming off again. He has had to use it for defense... when deer came through the fence and he needed to scare them away from mom's chihuahua :)
If you do, by some crazy action movie scenario, ever have to fight with this thing, the sword comes dull, but will take an edge if you know how. But even un-sharpened it's an excellent whacker, and the body is a great club too. So, yeah, if some magic genie grants your wish and you need to defend yourself and some lovely companion, you can double up, with the sword in one hand and the body in the other.
I like the look and feel of it, but my blade came ground flat.
love the look, love the feel. When it showed up, I had to re-glue the ball end back into the handle. Besides that, overall great product!
