Great Value Review by Rocki B

I am skilled in the martial art of stick fighting and want to learn the use of a cane as such. I also occasionally use one for walking, helps ease occasional backaches. RK is by far, the best buy! Cane is very sturdy, though a bit thicker than most with a 1 inch diameter. Cannot find rubber tip locally and will have to order such. Over all, a great buy!

excellent value Review by scott

I bought these because they are solid and cheap.

I cut off the bent portion with a hacksaw.

I found a brass handle set on Amazon with the 3/8 threaded stud.

Here is how to attach these types of handles

You need to take a 5/16" drill bit, and drill straight down into the center of the shaft, about 4"...

Take a 3/8 x 20 NC machine screw tap (not a pipe tap) and twist down into this hole to make the threads in the wood.

Mix some medium fast setting epoxy (4 hours) and coat lightly the bottom half threads of the 3/8 stud, and then twist the stud... until only one inch of threads remain exposed...

This can be easier done by screwing the stud into the handle first, and then grabbing the handle, and twist the stud down into the wood.

The handle gives you the leverage needed.

Once this is done, make sure the handle will unscrew off the stud.

If not, grab the handle and back out the stud about 1/2" until you can grad the stud with a pair of pliers. Hold the stud while you twist the handle loose from the stud.

Then take off the handle and use the pliers to twist the stud back down so that only one inch of threads are exposed

Let dry overnite.

Now you can use any handle that is pre-threaded,,,

And change the handles depending on your mood for that day

Very pleased with low cost-high quality end product.

Do a search on for the guy who sells Hawaiian koa canes for about $30... I think he turns them on a lathe and they are gorgeous....they come pre-threaded..

very happy Review by john hubbard

I ordered two canes, one was slightly better on the crook than the other but both were fine.

I recently traveled for three weeks through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and Canada. I saw your cane in numerous shops, feed stores, hardware stores, all at three to five times the price.

I will do business with you again, thank you for a great product, and the best price I have found.

Great Price For A Very Usefull Item Review by Caesar A. Mendez

Yes, I was urged to by your cane by my Fencing Master (Martinez Academy of Arms-NYC), he's been teaching selfdefence with the walking cane. I had searched other sites but they either didn't have any Hickory canes or they were priced about 3x's what you were offering. The least expensive site that I found (as aposed to my Fencing Master) was Atlanta Cutlery at about $19.99; & you beat that price even with the shipping cost. My biggest dissappointment was that the item I got was heavier & thicker than what was pictured on your website. So for self-defence purposes kind of awkward. It's going to take time to get used to the weight of the cane. But that's ok, you're selling an item for all-around use on a rual farm not a policeman's night-stick.

Oh, and I showed what I got to my Fencing Master, he wanted to get one for himself.

Good Quality, Very Good Price Review by Caesar A. Mendez

I was recommended to get a hickory cane by my Fencing Master R. Martinez of the Martinez Academy of Arms in NYC, at this time he is teaching me self defence with a cane. When I did a web search most sites didn't have a hickory cane or when they did, it was priced triple what you were offering. The only site with a reasonable price was Atlanta Cutlery at $19.99 & of course you beat that price even with the shipping cost!
My disappointment was that the item that I recieved was thicker & heavier than what appeared on your website. And I'm used to the canes that I have, an old fashioned wooden crook walking cane & a 'Irish Blackthorn' cane; both are a little shorter & lighter. But that's ok, you're selling a tool to handle farm stock animals; not a policeman's baton. As an all around tool for a rual lifestyle I'd say your product is just fine.
I'll just have to get used to the weight (my Fencing Master was very impressed with when he saw & handled & wants to get one for himself).

Not perfectly finished, but a fine sturdy cane that is easily refinished into something beautiful.

Not "bad" just "different." Review by Juan

I ordered this cane after asking a number of questions about it first.
It seems nice, but I find the cane a little bit flexible, especially in the crook.
This is scary to me, and I only weigh 220.
Hickory is supposed to be the hardest wood in North America, but I have here another cane, which is made of Ash wood, and it appears to be heavier, and stiffer than my new Seymour Hickory House Handle Cane.
I asked about the finish of this cane before buying, simply because I didn’t want to be bothered with having to finish it myself. Well, it does have some finish on it, but so minimal, that it is doubtful my new cane won’t soak up the first raid it is exposed to.
Also, another initial concern of mine before buying, was that I didn’t want to have to do any kind of modification to the cane, in order to fit a standard rubber cane boot on it. I have three other canes here, all standard and none of their rubber boots will fit on my new Hickory House cane.
I am naturally a very positive, up beat kind of person, and I’m trying to see the value in this product but thus far, I’m sorry I purchased it.
On the positive side - the cane arrived much faster than anyone expected it to.
It appears to be thoughtfully made, and is a little longer than standard so a slightly taller person can use it without having to order extra long.
I like this product, but I’m disappointed that it isn’t at least as sturdy or heavy as a regular hospital cane.

Excellent value for the price Review by Rob07

I agree with the physical description in the Self defense dot com review and crook handle been sanded and length around 38 inches. The sanded handle is unusual but don't bother me. I tested the canes placing both hands in the handle and pushing. Even if cane may bent, it holds my full 220 pounds. The lacquer finish protect the cane from dirt and water. Get a tip and you are ready to go.
If you are looking for strong hickory cane to use and abuse, this is the one and even more if you are like me that need a long canes. Just in case I bought several canes. UPS deliver to California was less than a week.

Good value for the price Review by Self defense canes dot com

Seymour Hickory House Handle Cane by Seymour Mfg.
Sold by Rural King Ag supplies, @ $10.99; SKU 016500015; 1-800-561-1752
I have seen these canes touted previously in self-defense discussion groups as a great way to get an inexpensive cane for self-defense or martial arts training. So when I found these advertised on the internet I had to order a couple to see how they would compare with other canes available. Although I was initially disappointed when I opened the box of three canes that I ordered, I have to agree that they are a basically good value for a hickory cane, at about $14.00 apiece including shipping. Yes – I said I was somewhat disappointed – here’s why:
The canes were originally intended to be stock handling canes, and come with fire burned shaft patterns, varnished, roughly 38 inches long, nominally 1 1/16 inch thick, and with reasonably straight shafts. No rubber tips are included. The three canes that I ordered varied in length 37 ¾ to 38 ½ inches long. The canes weighed from 17 to 19 ounces. While the basic shaft was over an inch thick, the crooks were over sanded, and sanded at an angle. Cane #1 was flared at the crook to 1 1/8 inch wide, but over sanded to only 5/8” thick. Cane #2 was flared at the crook to 1 1/8” wide but over sanded to ¾” thick, and the crook horn was off set to one side about 3/8”. Cane #3 had a shaft that was 1 1/16 inch wide, but the back side had roller tracks that had narrowed the cane to 7/8” thick. This cane had the best crook shape being 1 1/8 inch wide by 13/16” thick. Unfortunately, the crook horn was also off set to one side by about 3/8”.
Despite the fact that the narrowest crook was only 5/8” thick, it was rock solid and I was unable to bend or flex the crook as hard as I tried. I will reshape the crooks into uniform sides tapered to a newly angled horn, and then add grips to the shafts. Lastly I will apply a polyurethane finish after sanding the entire cane smoothly. The deeply burnt shafts are a feature that you will have to live with unless you are going to sand them quite a bit. I have been told that fire hardening the wood actually makes it tougher and does add a bit of character to the wood.

      You can use the standard rubber cane boot on it, the cane is stiff, it is finished hickory, and it weighs about a pound. As far as the thickness that is something you will have to contact the manufacturer about.
