The guys at Cold Steel aren’t strangers to making some pretty outrageous blades. However, this offering from Cold Steel takes the cake. The new 1911 Sword Cane from cold steel blends the popular grip from one of America’s most popular pistols and combines it with a 10mm thick 4116 Stainless blade to give those who need a little walking assistance a concealable defensive option.

An Elegant Weapon for a More Civilized Age – The 1911 Sword Cane
You can add a bit of 1911 pistol flare to your personal style by carrying our patented 1911 Guardian I Sword Cane. It has a handle that closely mimics the characteristics of a 1911 pistol grip in terms of size, shape and thickness, and it features thin, pebble grain synthetic grips. If you choose, you can modify your cane to your own tastes, because it can accommodate most custom 1911 pistol grips easily. The tough and sturdy shaft is made from seamless 6065 Aluminum with a 3mm wall thickness. Its heat treated for strength so that it can support heavier loads without breaking. Its also capped with a custom-made rubber ferrule for extra traction, so it resists slipping or sliding on wet, icy or uneven surfaces. The blade is made from 10mm thick 4116 stainless steel and is heat treated to a hard, spring temper. It will resist bending or breaking, and thanks to its long needle sharp point, will punch a gaping hole in just about any target! Like our other sword canes, the 1911 incorporates a friction seal. A quick tug, and the blade will appear, ready for action.
If two world wars weren’t enough reasons to adopt a 1911 grip on your sword cane, then I don’t know what else would want to make you buy a sword cane. The sword itself has a blade length of 19-inches and an overall length of nearly 38 inches making it both inconspicuous and more than capable of keeping a safe distance between you and any threats you may encounter. If you’re interested in picking one of these up either for yourself or for a friend, you can expect to pay about $110 for it. What are your thoughts on this offering from Cold Steel?
