This new cane features a combination of titanium and carbon fiber to provide a very stylish design that is both strong and light weight.
The head is machined from a solid piece of ø1.50" 6AL4V titanium bar. The low profile design features a gentle dome at the top for comfort and three grooves on the outside diameter to provide extra grip. It is attached to the carbon fiber tube by three polished stainless steel 2-56 Torx® head screws. The custom machined Nylatron® tip is press fit into the bottom of the tube for a sleek appearance.
Instead of using inferior, thin wall "carbon fiber" tubing (some of which has no carbon fiber at all - just a vinyl decal over plastic), this cane uses heavy wall true carbon fiber which has been mandrel wound and fully cured. There is a layer of cello-wrap on the outside of the tube to provide a glossy, classy appearance to the woven twill beneath.
Before installing the Nylatron® tip, the shaft is filled with urethane foam so it doesn’t emit a hollow resonance when something taps against it.
From the top of the head to the end of the Nylatron® tip, this new cane measures about 37 3/4” long. Weighing slighty more than 1 pound, it can easily be used on a daily basis without much effort. The balance point is approximately 13" below the head. Since the head is machined from solid titanium and attached with 3/8" long screws, this would be ideal for self defense scenarios if the need ever arises.
Please note that this cane can be custom made to the exact length you require. Contact me if you need more information on how to determine the recommended fit of a cane to your body.
