    Actually this is probably the one sort of weapon you could walk about in UK carrying which would not attract any attention. When I lived and worked there, I like many other people, often carried an umbrella especially when traveling about on public transport in a big city.

    Hell that's cheaper then a Walmart umbrella! If I was going to do an umbrella I'd want one of them Soviet spy ones with the poison tip

    Actually I always notice guys with umbrellas. Always wonder if it a destructive Device or sword. Especially when they are carrying them stowed cause most guys dont carry them anyways.

    Then again I'm wierd like that and notice all kinds of little stuff as it kept me from getting shanked a time or 3. That and I'm from part of AZ that gets about 7 inches of rain a year and no one carries an umbrella much less guys.

    Just sayin.

    They did, that's why cane swords are now "location restricted knives" instead of "illegal knives". There are fewer places where carry is verboten but still some.

    That's a good looking poker. I have a couple and the ones with long blades are useless and really just toys. Good pokers are actually usefull. Still it's a fantasy to think you will be able to unscrew some of these contraptions.

    Infact on a plane and other places you're not going to be swing a long unbalanced cheaply made sword cane probably more than once. It will probably break as the are cheaply made.

    The real weapon is the cane its self. Impact, deflect, hook etc.
