This item is a POISON CANE - not for the faint of heart. I don't really want to know what a buyers plans are for this one, but it is unusual and certainly collectable. Simply put, the top of the cane unscrews to reveal a small blue glass container for poison. enuf said!!!! I just want to get it out of the house before "she" finds it. The cane is in excellent condition and measures 35 1/2" long.
