I have seen the future, and it goes by the name: Hammercane.
If the buzz is right, and the apocalypse is upon us, or not, commemorate
2012 with the official cane of the end times. These handcrafted, hardcore,
downright badass accessories will no doubt find themselves in the hands of many
a survivor, should we find ourselves in social upheaval because of a
I'm certainly not advocating you buy a Hammercane for the purposes of bludgeoning

The Hammercane was conceived by the unconventional mind of Scott Given, an
Ontario native living and working out of his home in Southern Ontario.
Given has been experimenting in metal art for years after his graduation
from the Ontario College of Art and Design. I personally have in my own
collection a piece of his ‘shotgun’ art.
But I think he’s landed on something with Hammercane that will become a
trending topic across multiple social media networks and explode onto the scene
not unlike the axe art of Peter Buchanan Smith of Best made Co.
These marvelous canes can come in a variety of hammer heads, even
incorporating a favorite grandfathers antique hammer head if you’re so inclined. As Given says: “The Hammercane is only
limited by your imagination (And his, which seems boundless!).”
The twisted chain shaft is now a signature piece in Given’s collection and selling
fast. These canes are like a metal work installation you get to carry around on
your person. Unlike other artistic ventures, the Hammercane can be personalized,
inscribed, and made to suit varying heights and weights.
The Hammercane is Apocalypse Art
in the truest sense. I’m getting one and I urge you all do the same. Your life,
and your family’s lives might … just… depend on it!
