go dawgs?
i'm in absolute denial about my age, and after a recent hospital stay, I realized that the early morning dog walk might require that I have some backup when going over a curb. I remembered I ordered a cane from historical emporium for my mom, and checked to see what might work for me. since I recently moved back to Georgia, the bulldog seemed like a no-brainer. I'm 6' tall and it's a perfect height and the dog face fits in the palm well. it's sturdy and exceeded my expectations

Amazing!
After much debate on what to wear for Comic Con this year (I vacillated between investing in a high-end Star Wars costume, the Bandersnatch from Alice in Wonderland, etc), I at last decided to go as a Victorian Doctor and purchased an ENTIRE outfit along with many accessories, all at the VERY last minute, from Historical Emporium. Everything I ordered was in stock (Woot!) and I upgraded the shipping to Next Day Air based on my indecisiveness and my waiting to order 3 days before Comic Con. I placed my order on Sunday night. My order arrived Tuesday! EVERYTHING I ordered was perfectly amazing and of high quality! I was (am!) blown away! AND, to top it all off, Historical Emporium refunded my Next Day Air Shipping ($63!) because I live in Southern California, which is within their 1 day ground shipping zone already. What? Who does that? Holy moly - what a great company, what outstanding service and what amazing products! I'd write more but Comic Con starts in 24 hours and I've got to get ready!

Incredible Service
I cannot stress enough how great this company is. Great quality on all of their items. I ordered The Bulldog Cane back on Friday, Nov 9th, and choose the standard shipping, about 10 business days, but it arrived the following Wednesday. Superb. I will definitely be buying more from this website. Keep up the good work.

A beautiful, formidable, and functional cane
I bought this cane as a gift for a disabled friend. When the box arrived, he said he was surprised how much it weighed. And when he opened it up, he was amazed at how beautiful and sturdy the cane was. In fact, his physical therapist approved it as a medical device so he can use it every day! My friend was overjoyed and feels quite stately now that he's starting to walk again. If you're considering this cane as an assistive device be sure to discuss it with your medical professionals, it might be suitable for you as well.

Like it alot
I use a cane for balance. I prefer the knob top since I am not putting too much weight on it. This cane is great for that purpose, also looks great and has a nice heft. Had a different style silver plated one from another outlet and have dropped it several times and the silver plating has dented off, so that is why I got the solid brass. So far so good.

Good looking and functional
I always told myself I wouldn't start relying on a walking stick, but my back says otherwise some days, so I decided I'd buy a stick which was also useable as a costume accessory. This fits the bill very well. It's sturdy enough for support, strong and has a little heft to it. One very tiny fault - the metal collar below the handle does not sit tightly on mine, and is a little rough on the fingers after a while. The easy answer is to just change grip, but a tighter, straighter fit would be nice. All the same, I love this cane.

Governor Cane - Brass
A little bit short for a 5-11" frame (i have hip replacement issues, so do have a need for a cane on occasion), but it's certainly a good quality cane with a bit of heft - whether for actual practical use, or in cosplay.

A Gentleman's Cane
I picked up this walking stick for a pair of reasons. A: I love the classic look of a gentleman with a walking stick, and B: I often have hip and back pain that are eased with the use of a cane. The order arrived promptly, and the cane was just as pretty as shown. What they could not show was the beautiful heft and balance of this walking stick. The feel of it in hand is simply divine. It moves quite nicely as an extension of my arm. I have studied a few martial arts, and the sturdiness of this makes me feel confident that it would hold up quite well if I needed to teach an assailant one of the finer points of bartitsu. All in all, the expense is well worth the quality of the product.

This cane looks and feels really good. It is very robust. The screwed-on head is very stable. It is designed so it can be cut if it is too long for you. There's even instructions on how to determine the right length for you. I like it so much, I'm gonna be looking for excuses to carry it around.

Very handsome an light.
If one must use a walking cane because of poor balance, which I have , this one is very good. It is made of real cane and is therefore very light because it is hollow. Being height challenged I needed it shortened. Then I went to a medical supply store and they installed a new rubber tip. I am rarely without this cane. Several friends who use canes have commented on the beauty and light weight of this necessity. A crook in the end makes the cane very easy to loop over your arm when you need 2 hands are hang from a counter in the kitchen while cooking. Not only is it a safety cane to steady me but also a handsome accessory.

VAN DYKE BAMBOO CANE
THE CANE IS MADE VERY WELL. ALTHOUGH, I AM A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED. THE COLORAZATION BETWEEN THE CROOK AND THE STAFF ARE DECIDEDLY DIFFERENT. THE CROOK (HANDLE) IS MUCH DARKER THAN THE STAFF. I THINK I WILL BE ABLE TO STEEL WOOL THE STAFF AND RE-STAIN IT TO A DARKER COLOR.

PRETTY GOOD
Seems well made, and sturdy enough for a modest sized adult. The tip is certainly orthopedic--a bear to get off in one piece--and I think most HE customers will want to remove it for a less clunky and more traditional look. I wish mine were darker, as it is depicted on the site, but I'm guessing consistent hue is difficult to achieve with bamboo.

Sturdy and Stylish
I liked the looks of this cane on the website and thought it would be a good accessory for a re-enactment persona I will be performing later this year. I ordered it and when it arrived was blown away by just how much better it looked in person! This cane is the perfect combination of sturdy and stylish. It is a good value for the price. I removed the rubber tip and did a slight finish touch up to then end and voila, it was ready to become part of my persona. BONUS: the balance and weight of the Van Dyke Bamboo cane lends itself to balancing and twirling tricks, so if you're on the lookout for an addition to a showman or theatrical performer outfit, I highly recommend it.

Looks great from a distance
I was impressed with the care taken in packaging when my cane first arrived. I purchased for daily use after a recent back surgery. It has now been almost a week and I can write an honest review. The finish on the head is starting to chip and peel which leads me to believe it's nothing more than a piece of coated brass. It does have some considerable weight to it though. It threads on to interchange with other heads and there is a collar to hide the transition from metal head to wood cane. This collar does not line up perfectly. I believe it's from the screw not being perfectly centered in the cane for the head to screw on to. Other than that it's a perfect fit for my 6' 1", 235 lb, monkey arm frame and I have had no reservations about putting my whole weight on it. As far as the "geriatric" looking rubber tip, it IS REMOVABLE WITHOUT CUTTING IT OFF. It just takes some elbow grease to get it worked off. All in all it's a quality constructed, uniquely styled cane I never would have found locally.

I was looking all over the web for a simple walking stick that wasn't too showy but could also be useful in fancier situations. I was about to give up when I found this site. The number of items I want to buy here is astounding and I would certainly blow all my extra cash here if my girlfriend wouldn't flip out on me!

I enjoy this addition to my overall "look" as Bat Masterson. It is well made, looks great and is all that was promised in the description. This is a functional walking cane, but I use it as a prop, so I removed the rubber tip and attached a large upholstery tack to protect the exposed end.

Super clean and looks like a walking stick for a gentleman of the era. You will fit right in either being the mayor of your Dickson's Fair, or being handed it by your clock works butler as you pilot your airship into the future that never was.The cane has a shine and gloss black finish that makes it as elegant as it is sinister, and the gold top really adds weight, and makes it feel like you paid way more then you did.So click buy now, twirl your mustache, tie a woman to some train tracks, and use your stick to fight off evil or good doers every where!

Very nice...but
The walking stick is VERY nice, with good weight. However, the tip cap is large and clunky looking. I will probably remove it and replace it, it greatly detracts from an otherwise very nice walking stick.
