Steven Seagal found international acclaim and celebrity for his high octane action movies, but his first and foremost love is the world of Martial Arts. With an encyclopedic knowledge of the Japanese warrior arts, a 7th Dan Black Belt in the art of Aikido, and a lifetime of training, he is still a much in demand instructor and consultant, as well as a force to be reckoned with. While together on a research trip, Steven showed Cold Steel's Lynn Thompson one of the prized pieces in his collection, an oversized, custom walking stick from Steven's own design. Made of the finest exotic hardwood, it had aged and weathered. Lynn saw the potential in making a modern synthetic polymer replica that wouldn't age, crack, warp or splinter. This walking stick is almost an exact replica of Steven's skilled design, creating a versatile crook top piece that becomes an extension of the body. As Steven is a tall individual, it is the largest offering in Cold Steel's walking stick series, an unusual piece imbued with true warrior spirit.
