    I think a walking cane is perfectly legal including air travel. Iím sure I qualify from a medical standard.

    There seems to be a minor community advising people to carry them. They are under $20 on Amazon so not a big investment. But there are works of art that are wickedly light and ferociously strong. Heirloom quality.

    Are these an invitation to become a victim or is there a deterrence factor?Iím not sure I can sell the ďdandyĒ factor.

    If you find a high-quality sword-cane, let me know.

    It doesn't even need to be a sword. I'm not interested in getting into a fight with a guy with a three-foot oak dowel.

    Polearm is a dominant martial weapon.

    But if I want it to be a sword, is it okay?

    I'm sure the legality of a sword cane would vary from state to state. I'd make sure. Killing someone with a sword cane may be hard to defend in court. Best to be absolutely certain they're legal in your jurisdiction.

    Just my layperson 2 cents worth.

    Blunt force trauma. So simple, even a caveman could do it.

    Swordcanes seem to be legal in many states with California and Arkansas being definite exceptions.

    BUDK has swordcanes ranging from schlock to moderately expensive. Most of them look a touch flashy.

    One good thing about canes and similar blunt force trauma inflictors in general is that they are the most sure way to block an attack with a blade.

    California is obvious, but what on Earth made Arkansas ban sword canes?
