Ice Pick Cane
Dear friends at Canes Canada,
My mother always used to say: "Are you satisfied, please tell others. Are you unhappy, please tell me." Because of this I am approaching you first, rather than posting a review of the cane I purchased last year.
Initially I was fairly happy with the cane, although I noticed right away that the Ice Pick mechanism made the cane pretty noisy with each step. I also noticed that the little ice pick lever tended to get loose, so I was regularly tightening it. I found that, even when I used some pliers to tighten the lever, it would still get loose after a while. One day I did not catch it in time, and the whole lever came off. I tried everything to get it back on, but to no avail. Now, even if I could get it back on, I would just as soon get rid of it altogether. It seems to me that there is no way to get rid of it, short of sawing off the end of the cane.
All in all I like the looks of the cane, and I like the feel of the cane, however, the ice pick feature is just a "pain in the cane" to me. Do you have any advice for me please?
