Default "Hawkin' Stick"

I was surfing around some knife websites and came across this "Hawkin' Stick" I thought it was an interesting idea. Sword canes are illegal in Kalifornia, but nobody said anything about tomahawks.

What do you think?

They're legal for their intended purpose. I dunno' if they're legal as walking sticks though. Probably need a sheath and a rubber cap on the spike.

That thing is pretty sweet and no doubt could inflict some major attitude adjustment with a 2 handed swing

As for legal in Commifornia ..... I highly doubt it

I think they are legal in California or at least the old man that I saw walking out of a store with this in hand doesn't know if it's legal or not. Bottom line is I bet people will still have this regardless, then learn the hard way to see if it's legal or not. I would love to have this for my grandpa, too bad he has already passed on.

Hey, CA357... seriously would cops give a real hard time if they saw an older gentleman walking about with this on them?

That's one of the things I'm wondering about. Sheathed and being partly obscured in hand it would probably not be too obvious.

Of course, I don't know how practical it would be. Getting the sheath off and then getting into ready mode seems like it would be so time consuming as to be dangerous.

I'd say the hell with a sheath, your hand covers the business end. But an older person with physical limitations--even if those limitations are just age-related--would have to be pretty good to wield something like this effectively. Anybody who isn't in condition (or trained) for H2H should carry a firearm instead.

But it is another option.

Depending on the location and situation, this could be considered as carrying a dangerous weapon. Given the situation as an older gentleman walking in a residential area, the police might ask where he's going. Young adults/teens I think the questioning would be more intense. Possession in a mall area or where a lot of people have congregated, I would lean more to the dangerous weapon side of the issue.
