The sword-stick appeared with the XVIIš century but was largely spread with the XVIIIš century at the time of the
revolutionary period. The port of the knives being prohibited, the dissimulation of a sword in a cane allured many
travellers to ensure their safety. Thereafter when the cane became an object of mode, there still, to have a
sword-stick, it was to join the usefulness to triviality. Today, the Sword-stick is especially an object of collection
although its utility in self-defence is not negligible.
