"Nuke" Titanium Cane
$2,600.00 as shown

Nicknamed the "Nuke", this design is the most detailed titanium cane I currently build. It features a head made from solid 1 1/2” diameter 6AL4V titanium, a shaft with a wall thickness of .140", and a Nylatron® tip. 3 glow inserts have been implanted in the head and ports have been machined through the containment screws as well as on the side of the head. 

The shaft is made from 1” diameter 3AL2.5V (Grade 9) seamless titanium tubing. The entire length of the shaft is machined with multiple lands that have bands of fine grooves.

The head, shaft and tip are press fit together and further secured with stainless steel Torx® screws. The custom machined stainless steel containment screws in the head are secured with Loctite®. 

From the top of the head to the end of the Nylatron® tip, this cane is approximately 37 3/16” long and weighs approximately 3 pounds. This cane is substantial and it could easily be deployed in self-defense scenarios. The glow inserts in the head are an added bonus - making it easy to locate in the dark.

Because this design requires extensive machining time and the materials are difficult to obtain, it remains one of my rarest items.
