In TX, it's a concealed handgun license. No sword canes, Bowie knives, or tomahawks. This is why I like my canes so much: they're legal just about everywhere, especially with disability laws.

I need to check this out to be certain, but my 'Concealed Weapons Permit' doesn't state any particular weapon; just says 'weapons'. I'll try to get a ruling on this sometime during the next day or so.
Love Idaho, miss Texas.

You're in Idaho right? If you have a license, it's all good. See Idaho Code 18-3302 (7)

Thanks, Glistam. Saves me a phone call or two. I was reasonably certain my license included most weapons. My instructor talked about concealed knives and such during class; also several other types of weapons that people carried.
There are a couple of other sword canes that I see online that I would really like to have. The one I wanted most was 'out of stock' the last two times I've checked on it. It's a cane with a nice, but plain handle similar to some of the ones I see in Walmart, but has a blade inside. The other one I believe is considered a 'Celtic' designed handle.

I carry a cane, both out of necessity and defence. I have a bad knee that flares up 3 or 4 days out of the week. So i always have one or two in the vehicle. I have a variety of canes. A standard rattan cane from Hapkido class, an African walking stick from Cold Steel, and a variety of home made canes and walking sticks. I also have a tall shepheards crook for special occasions.
