    I looked up those umbrellas once, found that they're exorbitantly expensive.

    I'd just as soon fake a limp and carry a Canemasters cane.

    I wonder, are the TSA people watching for canes that come from specific makers like Canemasters, so they can say, "Oh no ya don't, this cane is for use as a weapon!"? I don't suppose they'd really have a "leg to stand on," if they tried to deny it. After all, how much more dangerous is a Canemasters cane than any other cane? But we already know they're not governed by logic and reason . . .

    I have the Cold Steel "African Walking Stick." I love the thing. I wonder if it would get resistance at an airport, though. (I'm also one of those, "He doesn't look like he needs a cane" kinds of people.) The big knob at the top would be rather handy for bopping someone.

    The tip of the African Walking Stick is too slippery on plain floors, like tile or wood, or even concrete. I went to walmart and got a rubber cane tip (they come in a small box, just a buck or two each) and stuck it on. Works great now!

    TSA run the canes through the metal detectors for potential swords, daggers imbedded, etc in them. They will also not allow something with a metal tip on it.

    My canemasters has a rubber knob [ like you would use on the end of furniture to avoid scratching the floor ] for gripping the surfaces and keeping the end of the cane from damage on hard surfaces like tar, concrete etc ].

    Mine has not been restricted from travel to date.

    No one ever asked me about having to use my cane when I had it on flight, cruise or anywhere. Oh - and I got it from http://www.canemasters.com several years ago too.

    I use a cane just about every day.

    Any medical supply store will have a good selection to choose from

    My suggestion would be a fold up metal cane.

    I carry one in the tourpak of my Harley because it folds up and does not take up a lot of room, but still available when my leg acts up and I need it.

    My medical supply folks delivered a new fold up metal cane to me a few weeks back, it only cost about $17.00.

    I have carried a cane on flights several times and have never had a problem. However I do feel kind of sheepish when they let me on the flight early due to my "need for assistance."
