Thoughts on stick for city walking, possible defense applications

I'm fortunate enough not to really NEED a stick to get around. . . but I'm 62, have a bad ankle, my eyesight isn't getting better, and I often walk my dog at light on potholed streets and uneven sidewalks, in an iffy neighborhood.

With this as background: what are your thoughts about a cane to use as a mobility aid with possible self defense applications? I'm thinking about woods, weight, types and shapes of handles, etc.

Hazel and Holly are ideal wood species for sticks that can be used for self defence as well as a walking aid because they have the twin advantages of being light but tough.
