Carbon Fiber, Koa, and 21-Inches of Damascus

Yep, it's another sword cane by E. Scott McGhee. Scott made his first sword cane in 2012 - a Steampunk Sword Cane with a copper shaft and knob. It was beautiful and unique, but a tad heavy, so Scott started investigating new options for the shaft soon after delivery to its new owner.

In January of this year, Scott started playing with carbon fiber, and by Blade Show 2013 he had a beautiful lightweight Carbon Fiber Sword Cane to display.

That cane didn't stay displayed long, and Scott was happily commissioned to make another. Here she is - GHF Sword Cane #3 - a near exact copy of the second cane with an exquisite diamondback pattern Damascus sword, Koa knob, copper ferrule, Damascus throat, and carbon fiber shaft.

Carbon Fiber Sword Cane
Steel: 1080 & 15n20 
Overall Length: 36 inches
Blade Length: 21 inches
Shaft: Carbon Fiber
Knob: Flame grain Koa w/copper ferrule
Weight: 1 lb 6 oz

Scott's sword canes just keep getting better, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. I'm thinking something with silver accents, African Blackwood, a new Damascus pattern, and carbon fiber shaft . . . but I'm just the photographer, so what do I know. Stay tuned!

Thanks for looking.
