I tried to drill with mine once. Bad idea.

Instructor...check out the "BUBBA STICK", or a solid hickory cane.

The Bubba Stick is light, but has a nasty solid brass knob on the end that can be devastating. I keep one in my truck when I go out and walk around a lot.

I almost lost my precious solid hickory cane, so I decided to keep it at home for walking down the road rather than risk losing it.

The Bubba Stick used to be available at truck stops. That is where I got mine.

A walking cane/stick is better than an illegal sword cane and more practical.

Now....using this opportunity for a shameless self promotion;

You could get one of my patented walking stick adapters that allows you to fix a bayonet on the end of your favorite stick. Works on five kinds of bayonets so far. Including the cheap Chinese imports.

Its an awesome deterrent for bad guys that might show up at your house.

Seeing a small hand gun, (not M14) a bad guy might not back down. But a long broad sword....I think is a serious back-the-hell away moment.

Not to mention you take it hiking and all.

There was a case some years back of a guy walking a ceremonial sentry post at some kind of monument, may have been Arlington, carrying an NCO sword, when he came upon a crime in progress. IIRC it was an attempted rape. He used the NCO sword to stop the crime, ie he whacked the guy pretty hard.
