Canes and Other Resources

I’d like to thank reader Brian for alerting me to the following resources:images

Whip cane

“You can usually go to any feed store and ask for a “hog/pig show cane,” they are what CaneMasters use as their starting point…

much cheaper…very strong…spray them black…can take a full power swing at my tire targets w/o breaking…few canes can do that…

 

My best canes have been made out of Ironwood…they grow in creek beds…vertically ribbed with a green bark…

leave the bark on…put Saran Wrap over the ends (so they dry slowly) and the bark turns to a beautiful, tenacious dark brown…

We’ve found that whole trees or whole branches can flex in all directions—stronger than lathed products (even baseball bats break, hit cross-grain)…”

KA9406Ka-Bar also makes a cane.

I have a friend who relies on a cane because of arthritis in his hip. He successfully used his cane to defend himself, but I told him I still think his cane is too light. He has an adjustable aluminum cane that I feel isn’t good for striking and may collapse when striking, due to a single spring-loaded button so that you can adjust the length of the cane.

It is my belief that canes tend to be too light, so you need to search carefully to find a stout one.

Lastly, here is a combination bat and flashlight.
