And an early Merry Christmas to all! :)

I joined the Forum just seconds ago. I own a few walking sticks: nothing old or expensive. Am getting more interested in collecting, especially since I love the Sherlock Holmes tales, which are rich with references to walking sticks.

Anyone know where I can get a Penang lawyer?

Welcome to the site Jim! Unless you find one already made some where, you'd have to get your hands on some "Licuala acutifida" and I'm not sure how you do that, not seen any for sale in my neck of the woods! :)

Now THAT'S odd! You'd think that with all the Sherlock Holmes buffs out there, there'd be a bigger demand for these sticks.

One thing I dislike about the Cold Steel sticks: they don't come with a rubber tip, and are therefore not suited for walking on city streets.

Cold Steel is the company name of a knife manufacturer. They are also now making defense-oriented walking sticks, but the sticks are made of a dense, heavy plastic material, not of metal.

I just bought a Cold Steel shilleleaugh, and am dissapointed in it. I must be old fashioned, but the plastic wood turned me off. I'm 5' 11", so it seems to fit me OK.

A little late on my part.

But welcome to the Forum, Jim!

I had to look up "Penang lawyer" to see what THAT is. Very cool.

I agree with JJ. The "real deal" would be awesome.

I hope you find what you're looking for.

JJireh,

Yes. It will fulfill its intended purpose as a deterrent/defense. Problem is that it is an in-house only tool. I am a little embarassed to be seen with it in public. It is just sooo un-natural looking. The bit of blackthorne burl attached doesn't even attempt to make a smooth transition with the rest of the synthetic stick. It stands a quarter inch above the attachment point of the shaft, so it really looks like an afterthought. The Wife of 34 years first words were " It's plastic, and it doesn't even fit itself! ". That is why I'm here!
