There is more than meets the eye to this remarkable walking stick. The cane's elegant exterior is crafted entirely from a handsome gutta percha veneer. With a swift pull on the crook handle, however, the hilt of a deadly Toledo steel sword is revealed.

Toledo swords are considered the finest blades in the world, and the Spanish steel used to create them is legendary for its incredible strength. Today, these blades are heralded for their unrivaled quality, masterful craftsmanship and fierce beauty.
