The sword cane, or sword-stick, has been around for quite some time. They go back as far as the Roman days, to the dolon, and were even in use in Japan, as the shikomizue. And now, it is a weapon that you can wield in the modern world, because Dark Knight Armoury carries a number of sword canes that are fully functional and great for use in sparring and self-defense. In fact, self-defense is an array in which these weapons typically excel, thanks to their convenient shape and their unassuming appearance. Most will not even realize what they are facing until you have drawn the blade. Our sword canes come in a variety of different shapes and styles, including casual city sticks and swagger sticks that are perfect for a modern gentleman to carry as an accessory to his style, as well as for the gentleman or lady who needs a little support when it comes to walking a great deal. Many of our sword canes feature solid, rigid shafts that double over as weapons themselves, allowing for you to strike with them as easily as you would a staff or a fencing cane, and many also feature reinforced blades that serve well when it comes to piercing strikes. They are also insanely quick to deploy - some require a button press to release the blade, while others demand just a solid twist and pull on the knob to free the blade from the cane-like sheath. And since they come from such manufacturers as CAS Iberia, Cold Steel, and Hanwei, you know that these sword canes are going to be hardy, effective, and deadly - should the situation call for it. So if you plan on enjoying the city nights or strolling the block alone, make sure you have got the support you need, as well as the protection you deserve, in the form of one of Dark Knight Armourys highly effective sword canes.
