How about something different? I am building a walking stick at home, but wanted to know what was commercially available. An offering from Cold Steel caught my eye. Designed by martial arts master Steven Seagal, made of injection-molded polypro and clearly modeled after a Japanese bokken (wooden training sword), the Ten Shin walking stick goes for $73.99. Grip is simulated sharkskin, as you would find on a katana. The handle itself is an axe-head for additional attention-getting.
Ten Shin means "Heavenly Mind". The mon, or 5-circle crest symbolizes the plum blossom with a tsurugi double-edge sword, which can cleave an enemy or indeed the wielder himself, should his intentions be less-than-honorable.

I'm not a fan of Steaven Seagal nowadays but I like the cane in the original wood.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

But can it chop meat filled boots? Inquiring minds want to know. And see it on youtube

Accompanied by some really annoying electric guitar music, too.

I like it.
Too bad I hate steven segal to the point I don't capitalize his name or do things that give him money.
Imma watch under siege 1 and 2 from my file sharing site just because I saw this.
But then of course I might be a 13 year old girl who reads alot of gun magazines, so feel free to disregard anything I post.

As are most things Cold Steel.

Sometimes I need a cane to walk. I have a few custom ones made of heavy wood. They aren't made to thump, but could if necessary.
This? Yeah, it can probably thump as well, and then the prosecution would be showing them pictures of Mr. Seagal holding said axe-headed cane and I would be a cripple in jail.
It's a good point. I could actually see myself getting one of these, but cutting the axe-head part off (I find it kind of oogly, anyway).
|The cake is a lie!|
In that case, maybe just get a bokken to begin with?
How could a martial arts master like Steven Seagal even comprehend a weapon. I've seen beat down ten guys at the same time with his bare hands. I know he has fighting and hair dying techniques down pat. Perhaps he should work on a martial arts weight loss program!
For the handle, so you can use it like a cane.
Another thing, this is a cane, so should be jettable. TSA site says canes are OK in checked or carry-on luggage. I think I would still cut the axe part off just in case.
That video defines douchey.
I could see cutting myself if I tried to use that bottle opener.
I thought the exact same thing!

Check out Seagal's thumbnail in that video. Weird.
That's an Asian thing. I've seen it a lot over there. Usually it's a long pinky nail. I've heard differing theories on its origin, from status symbol to personal hygeine to things go better with coke.
