I hooked into the "free shipping" and was glad of it. It cost me $39.99 and I'll have the cane within a week. This is a great accouterment. It is sturdy and well worth the price of admission. This cane can, in the words of the late John Cameron Swayze "Take a lickin' and keep on tickin'."
The solid polypropylene construction allows me to beat the belaboring daylights out of someone/something and walk away passively as if nothing had happened.
A few dents and scratches may appear on the unit, but I can live with that. At $39.99 it is always replaceable.
You have to admit, it isn't a bad idea. An impact weapon you can carry anytime, anywhere without arousing suspicion.
(That, my friends, is always
a positive attribute). I can waltz into a courtroom, onto an Amtrak train, onto a Greyhound bus, and probably onto an airliner, without anyone raising an eyebrow.
Convenient, isn't it?
