I have been using a feed store hickory stock cane ($9.00) for 6 years now and that thing is tough. It's got some good dents in it but no cracks. I just cut it to length and shaped the horn to a nice point on a belt sander. I'll put it up against a $75 Canemaster anytime.

They are double tough for sure. I love stock show canes from feed stores.

Cane making info

Backwoodsman magazine had a great article a few months back about making a homemade steamer to make the wood pliable to bend the crook. I dont log on here as often as I would like but if you want to email me I will try to find the article.Here is their contact info. I am in no way affiliated or associated with this publication or its owner, I just buy the mag at a news stand.

I need a cane to get around these days anyway.
Do not use every day but do keep in the truck a heavy alumnum K-Bar TDI
It's a bit heavy, and a bit long, (need to cut a couple of inches off.)
Figure if I am in a bad area I'll grab the K-Bar.

Figure it's a good step before things escalate to my EDC Glock 26.

I am new here and after reading this thread I just ordered a Blackthorn and City Stick from Cold Steel. They came today and I really like them both. The Blackthorn I put a 1" cane tip on and it fits perfectly. The city stick has a cane tip on it. I am 70 years old and weigh 126 lbs and have always felt "vulnerable". Until reading here I never realized the protection that a cane can legally give one and besides they look good walking.

Any suggestions for lessons to learn better how to use the canes for legal protection?

Welcome CP.
Do some internet reading on stick/cane fighting
Talk to the local martial arts studio about classes.
Practice.

It is a good product.

Rather than hijacking this thread, if you use the search function and enter "unbreakable umbrella" you should get a dozen or more threads discussing them.
