Japanese Officers swagger stick with hidden blade ..


A very rare and unusual Officers “ swagger stick “ .

A swagger stick is a short stick or riding crop usually carried by a uniformed person as a symbol of authority. A swagger stick is shorter than a staff or cane and is usually made from rattan , this one however is in hinoki wood covered in shingunto style leather . Its use derives from the vine staff carried by Roman Centurions as an emblem of office. 

the signed ( stamped) blade really is a vicious looking blade.
