I got a really nice 3' walking stick made out of some sort of highly strong grass or reed. It's about the diameter of a 50 cent piece at the top and tapers to a quarter at the base. I cannot recall the name of it, but this stuff is unbelievably hard.

I bought it in India, and I think I might have paid $5 or $10 for it. Was worried it wouldn't get thru customs but it barely fit in my bag and they didn't give me too much grief.

That would be a great table of wood properties if the formatting wasn't all screwed up.
Can you post the source URL or something? Maybe one of the computer wizards here can post it with the formatting intact.

Go to the links.
run Select All
run Copy
Open a new Word document on your machine.
Paste.

Then you've got the table with formatting intact.

the cane "crook" offers interesting abilities for tripping people and trapping an arm (long enough to rip out an eye or larnyx) Also, you can "tension" the cane by pushing down on it just so, and then, twist your hand up, causing the tip of the cane to bust a guy right in the jewels. It happens so fast that he can't react. Naturally, this requires the range to the target to be nearly perfect, but if an attacker isn't aware of this, it can easily be his un-doing. :-)

I had a conversation with the owner of Cane Masters
A sharp horn can pierce a torso.
Or a throat.
Imagine a piece of wood spliting your ribs.
Your throat.
Your "crotch."
You do not want that.
The cane, properly configured and deployed, is formidable.
Mine is for blunt force.
I need to get through TSA
There is a lot to go into, but for now, I have what I want.
That and a unbreakable telescoping umbrella.
Now when I travel, I have a method of saying, leave me alone
That was my goal

Iíve flown with several different canes. I travel the most with a hickory root knob cane I dug up off my farm years ago.

Iíve also traveled with a stockmanís cane that I opened the crook on a bit and pointed the horn a bit. I flamed it and then put linseed oil on it several coats.

A quality rubber cane tip put on wet linseed oil will get ďglued ď on so it will not likely come off!

Any metal on or in the cane is a negative for traveling.

Cold Steel has several nice sturdy plastic canes that work well with a rubber cane tip, but Iíve never traveled with one though they should be legal to travel with!

In my opinion, there are three types of defensive canes.

The first type is a sturdy non metal cane you can take through the Airport.
Second would be a defensive cane you would feel comfortable using in
your neighborhood walking your dogs, that would be a step up, and
have metal on it or in it.

Then the third type would be in a situation where you are not worried about
Law Enforcement due to the situation or area, such as the Cold Steel heavy
sword cane.

So when the OP asks about canes, he should probably tell us what he wants it
for.

The only canes California has outlawed are sword and firearm canes.

Here is all you need to know about cames and how to use them. The cane that was used is pictured in the link. And after the Caning was done people from all over the country were sending him new canes.

Cold steel ten shin , they are out of production now but if you look around they still can be had. And you can cut them to size.

All? You're sure there, sport?

So all I need to know is how to get a gang of armed thugs to back me so I can attack and beat an unarmed, middle-aged, blinded sick guy and have my cane break into several pieces while they cover my coward ass?

I must have missed that chapter in the book.

There are a lot of legal things in California that will get you in trouble if the LEO decides you have them in your possession for the wrong reason.
Tools
Baseball bats
"Ugly" sticks
I imagine it is the same in other jurisdictions.
Thanks to Truck Vet for the head's-up on the titanium rods
I am going to go down that rabbit hole.
Looks promising as the aluminum "ballistic" canes bend.
Still effective, but the solid titanium rods are reported to impact with little to no rebound and not bend or break.
Sounds good to me.

You wont get them through a security checkpoint though. I used a cane when I was recovering from a broken ankle and any time I went through a security check point, they x-ray'd the cane.

True, your intent for having just about anything useful for fighting can be used to arrest/charge/convict you in many/most places, especially CA.

That little league bat under your front car seat can get rammed up your keester in court, if you're not taking an 8 year old to practice and you use it to defend yourself. Same with a 5 cell Maglite you've put a pointy endcap on.

Which is why any of the seemingly innocuous non weapons, sold as weapons, (often with cutsie pie names, "tactical", etc., wink wink) are a really dumb idea to carry.
