Gil Hibben Custom Self Defense Sword Cane. The master knife maker Gil Hibben unveils his first-ever custom designed sword cane. A 36 1/2" wooden shaft with a synthetic ivory and wood construction. A 14" mirror-polished 7CR17 stainless steel tanto blade snaps into the shaft and releases with a blade release mechanism built into the handle. The file-worked stainless steel head offers a great grip but can also be used as a club for self defense.
