Cold Steel City Stick Walking Stick
Here are some classy walking sticks that are just at home at the opera as they are on a stroll through the urban jungle. The City Stick's glossy black shafts are made out of eleven layers of fiberglass which, in impact tests, proved to be virtually unbreakable.
The stick is topped with a lightweight 6160 Aluminum head that's been given a mirror polish finish. The head is removable so it can be easily engraved or modified to suit your taste.
The base is fitted with thick rubber ferule to keep you from slipping on the mean streets and cracked sidewalks.
• Overall Length: 37 5/8"
• Handle: 11 Layer Fiberglass
• Thickness: Shaft: 3/4"
This is a very high quality walking stick. I bought it for a little support while walking as well as its suitability for defensive use. It is long stick but I am 6'4" and it fits me perfectly, a person not as tall will need to cut it down if they want to use it for support, but that should be an easy process. I have had no issues with any irritation to my hands due to the laminated fiberglass construction as I have read in some reviews, but my hands are calloused as I work with them so that may be why. The tip is a hard plastic that may slip on smooth or wet surfaces but scuffing up the bottom helps alleviate this.You can also find rubber tips inexpensively and at some point it will need to be replaced anyway. The aluminum alloy head is comfortable and classy looking too, I take it everywhere.
The walking stick is one of the best
I thank God I bought this a few years ago and kept it by the bed. Last year, I used it repel a home invader. While unable to stop him, it did slow him down by inflicting head injuries, and this bought us enough time to escape the house without injury to ourselves. Law enforcement picked up the intruder later by literally following his trail of blood. The City Stick withstood hard use very well: after cleaning off the intruder's blood, I noticed that there were just a few scratches on the metal head, and the rubber ferrule was missing. Otherwise it was in full working order, and looking as classy as ever. The rubber ferrule has been replaced, the City Stick is once more standing beside the bed, and peace reigns once more in my home. Congratulations to Cold Steel on an excellent product! I should add that the City Stick is slightly heavy for use as a walking stick, but when the adrenaline surges while facing an growling intruder in the dark, it feels very light.
