Sword ping

Forget about the blade, that would be a war hammer to anybody except TSA, which seemed only mildly suspicious to them. I guess TSA has never even perused orthopedic supply catalogs to see what normal canes look like. Or know how to spot the simple modification to a regular cane to turn it into a martial-arts weapon. :)

Sword Ping!

Nice sword-cane. There really ought to be a way they could allow people to ship items home rather than just forfeit them. I lost a Leatherman tool that way.

From my days in scouting, a hiking staff, stick, pole what have you, was a valued tool and weapon. Many a snake aka Charlie no shoulders, was flipped off the trail or killed with said stick. Add then a career of stomp and drag riot control with a 36 inch baton, PR-24’s etc and yes a cane or broomstick is a viable self defense thang indeed !

Uniformed, static security such as TSA wannabes is pure friggin whitewash and real terrorists know it. They will be back when and where they want.

Me , I’m retired military, I fly space A overseas, general aviation or company aircraft in the states or drive to my destinations.

If TSA is involved with my trip security I will walk home......they are a joke.
