    One of my favorite wooden walking sticks is perfect for winter treks on ice. It has a rather heavy bottom which I carved into a sharp serrated wedge type point. It grips the ice well and probably could also repel or do damage to an aggressive animal (wild dog, or whatever).

      Good point (pun not intended, lol). I like how the spear point fastens with a wing nut for easy removal and installation if the environment is not favorable for it.

        This is an interesting article! Thanks for the link. I use the cane for 3-4 months, for me there is a lot of new, but not long ago I got used to walking with it correctly.

            How were you using it?

              Using it on the wrong side of the body, wrong cane length, and probably a number of other wrongs that I have forgotten about over the past decade since my snakebite.
