Powerful and capable, the new United Cutlery M48 SK-5 Carbon Steel Sword Cane is sheer, sleek perfection in a discreet self-defense weapon. Starting at the top, you have a 2Cr13 cast stainless steel handle with a black oxide finish and a nylon fiber grip. Then, the shaft is of sturdy nylon fiber, too. Housed within the shaft as your second line of defense is a razor sharp 432 mm (17 inches) SK5 carbon steel black-coated blade. The cane also has a slip-free toe and is 940 mm (37 inches) in overall length.
