I have been reading about on fighting canes the last few days. And thought I would make some canes that could fall into that category. The Shillelagh is the classic fighting stick. There are a lot of different ones on the web. Our typical hook cane can work as a self defiance weapon but can be made more effective by lessening the curve of the hook and cutting it in such a way to leave a point on the end of the curve. I did this with this 1” diameter walnut hook cane. It will still hang on a chair and is good to walk with. I also drilled a 5”deep ½” hole in the bottom of the cane and installed a ½” all thread in the hole with epoxy. To give a little extra weight the end of a swing. I am going to texture much of the body of the cane so it will be less slippery in the hand. I should have made the cut to the outside of the of the cane handle instead of the inside. It would be a stronger point. I have some other Ideas for straight handles cane that could be used for fighting or self-defense devices. I would like to see or hear others thoughts and canes that focus on self-defense. We old men need all the help we can get.
