The Cold Steel African Walking Stick is a 37" cane based on the hand-made Zulu walking sticks that are a tradition in this African nation. Emulating the hand-carved wood designs of the traditional walking sticks, with an undulating shaft and the traditional geodesic ball grip at the top, the Cold Steel Walking Stick is made of impervious and practically unbreakable polypropylene. While offering the same durability as an authentic Zulu walking stick, the Cold Steel 37" African Walking Stick will not warp, rot, swell, splinter, or crack. This walking cane is made to help negotiate tough or slippery terrain, but it can also serve as a pointer, a lever, and a formidable self-defense weapon. Based on a form that's been used by some of the fiercest warriors the world has known, the Cold Steel African Walking Stick is sure to stand up to whatever comes your way.
