Dragon Walking Stick

Dragon Walking Stick

57.60 / 69.12

The mythical dragon has captured the imagination of man for centuries. Asian folklore casts them as benign creatures, man's allies in a hostile world, or as symbols of imperial Chinese power, used as motifs on palace walls, and on soldier¹s breastplates. In the west, they were known to be fierce adversaries, fire breathing, cleaver beasts who rained destruction and leveled villages. The brave knight who slew one could return to his village after winning the hand of the fetching fair maiden he saved from the dragon's wrath.

Legends aside, a dragon is a powerful creature possessed of extraordinary physical attributes, which command respect across the board. It is for this reason we have chosen to use the dragon as the inspiration for our latest walking stick. It is modeled after an intricately carved Dragon Stick from our President, Lynn C. Thompson's collection and is reproduced using expensive, hand engraved injection molds. The detailing is astonishing, with scales running the full length of the undulating shaft, and a fearsome face with snarling fangs, it is an imposing stick you'll be proud to be seen with on almost any occasion.

It is fashioned, like many of our other walking sticks, from the highest grade of high impact Polypropylene available, assuring its imperviousness to the elements and guaranteeing it is virtually indestructible. Black in color and sinuous in shape and form, it offers light to medium support and a number of grip options making it unusually suitable as an aid to balance.

Trench Hawk Trainer

Trench Hawk Trainer

The best of the world's sword fighters have known a simple truth for ages... if you want to become a reasonably good sword fighter you should endeavor to learn sword fighting techniques, footwork and the basic stances. However, if you want to be a master at sword fighting you have to eventually start fighting with a "live blade". If your ultimate goal is to wield a razor sharp sword safely and effectively, you need to train with a sword that approximates the size, feel and heft of a live blade, yet minimizes the possibility of causing grievous, permanent, or life-threatening injury to yourself or your training partner.

This concept was implemented by the ancient Romans, who used dull wooden swords to train their Gladiators and soldiers. And Japanese Samurai used a wooden training sword that was called a Bokken. It's an elegant solution to a vexing problem and effective enough to still be used today. The only problem is that a wooden sword can rot, crack, chip or splinter and eventually become useless.

Cold Steel's solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious to the elements. The Cold Steel line of Training Weapons are made of heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real sword in length, size, weight and feel. While they're not quite as rigid as wood, they have the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant.

6" Ti-Lite Aluminum Handle

6

128.40 / 154.08

Our Ti-Lite® tactical folders evoke the sleek speed and rebellious lines of the classic 1950's-styled switchblade.

They feature Japanese made AUS 8A stainless steel blades with a bead blast finish, razor sharp edges and sturdy, needle sharp points. The CNC milled handles are forged from super tough 7075 Aluminum billets and are given an attractive bead blast surface and finished with a protective EDP (Electric Discharge Plating) coating. And for maximum strength and safety, we have equipped our Ti-Lites® with our patent pending, stainless steel leaf spring locks (proven, in our tests, to hold 130 lbs).

For ease of carry, the Ti-Lites® come equipped with a small, but unobtrusive steel pocket clip, and can be opened by using the thumb studs or by snagging a quillion on the edge of your pocket.

We are grateful to custom knife maker, Phil Boguszewski, for his design influence and help in the creation of the Ti-Lites.®

Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick

Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick

52.80 / 63.36

The Blackthorn bush is found throughout Ireland and the British Isles. It has been prized for centuries as a material for premium walking sticks. The original Blackthorn sticks were 2 to 4 foot long Irish shillelaghs (the national weapon of rural Ireland). In expert hands the shillelagh was so fearsome that during the final occupation of Ireland, the English outlawed it. To get around the law, the Irish turned the shillelagh into a 3-foot walking stick. The English didn’t want to appear unreasonable by outlawing walking sticks too, so the Irish kept their modified shillelaghs and the world gained a beautiful and functional walking stick known simply as the Blackthorn.

Cold Steel made the effort to obtain and sell authentic Blackthorn sticks over fifteen years ago, but the venture turned out to be disappointing, and not because the sticks didn’t sell well. It was because Blackthorn is difficult to come by and, since it’s grown and not manufactured, it is somewhat inconsistent in quality.

Cold Steel's recent forays into injected molded polypropylene products has yielded some impressive results and now we have produced a new polypropylene Blackthorn that has all of the advantages of real Blackthorn and none of its pitfalls.

Our Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick is inspired by an authentic Blackthorn from Cold Steel President, Lynn C. Thompson's private collection. It was copied carefully, and then artfully modified to a point where it not only mimics nature, but actually rivals and supersedes anything the natural world could produce! If nature had fashioned the most perfect Blackthorn stick, and you were lucky enough to come by it, our Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick is what it would look like. It's a superb faux Blackthorn stick, and since it's injection molded from polypropylene, it will never warp, crack, swell up, or splinter and is easy to maintain with a little soap and water.
