In Florida, one may carry, but not brandish, a sword cane. However, in California, it is a criminal offense to manufacture, sell, import, give, or possess cane swords.

It has been a long time since the walking cane was a status symbol for powerful and wealthy men. Today’s royal scepters and bishop’s staves are the heritage of the old tradition.
By 1600s canes became fashionable for European gentlemen to carry as part of their daily attire. The 17th century also saw new rules of etiquette formed in regard to canes, as cane use was considered a privilege. In the United States of America, presidents have often carried canes and received them as gifts (the one given to George Washington by Benjamin Franklin is kept at the Smithsonian).
By early 20th century, a high-grade cane was an indispensable accessory for the fashionable gentleman telling of individual’s wealth and importance. And so it is today: for many an elegant cane is still an exquisite demonstrative show of status rather than a mere mobility aid.
