This cane is very, very well made. The details are elegant, artistic and quite pleasing to the eye.
The clasp for the blade fits snugly and releases the blade smoothly, the blade is fitted well to the grip, having no lose or rattling pieces.
The blade is elegantly etched with filigree and a beautiful Copperplate font stating "On Her Majesty's Service" as seen in Museum Replicas' photos - what Museum Replicas does not mention, is that the blade is also equally and elegantly etched on the reverse of the blade as well with filigree and crown.
The grip is weighty, and has a quality feel to it, and again the details are quite pleasing to admire.
The blade is unsharpened, its point would easily pierce certain objects with a little applied pressure and not much effort. For a cutting edge, however, the blade would need to be sharpened. The blade meets functional use as a short thruster, and would perform as would a half length rapier.
