In 1804, duels were common practice in America. It was a way for men from all walks of life to defend their honor. Many Flintlocks were used in this endeavor just like this replicated cane handle but before that swords were used and it just so happens that this Flintlock houses one of those too. Inside this stunning cane is a 12 inch stainless steel blade that is securely hidden from wondering eyes. The handle features side mounts are made from a molded ABS material. A swish and flourish design can be seen throughout the piece. The metal work is a brushed zinc aluminum which pairs nicely against the matte black finish of the tapered shaft. This cane has an added novelty. You can actually cock it. What fun! The end features a rubber tip to balance and prevent slippage.
