This unassuming sword cane is a beast when it comes to self defense! It offers a strong, partial crook handle constructed of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced nylon composite for a strong, sturdy grip. The 16 3/4" blade is cast from 2Cr13 stainless steel with a satin finish and piercing point for deep penetration. It is very similar in design to United Cutlery's popular "Urban Stinger" daggers, but on a larger scale. The ultradurable, sturdy shaft is built just as well as the handle, making this sword cane virtually indestructible! The end of the shaft also features a rubber tip, making it easy to navigate through icy streets and uneven sidewalks.
