Sword Canes

It is apparently the case that a license was required to carry a cane in London during the 18th century, possibly because of the use as a weapon, in essence a fighting stick. Sword Canes and stick swords evolved out of this as a hidden weapon for carry.

A particular type of walking stick was created, called a Stick Sword. This concealed a blade within the stem, which can be made to appear from a cane so as to convert it into a (normally hidden) weapon. Today, sword sticks are called Sword Canes.¬†Sword canes are great for those who are impaired or just want to “dress up” while still having the protection of a hidden sword.

Also known as a zatoichi or shikomizue in Japanese, stick Swords were common in Japan when the government outlawed the carry of Swords. We also have a variety of walking sticks and canes.
