While together on a research trip, Steven Seagal showed our company President one of the prized pieces in his collection - An oversized custom walking stick of his own design called the Ten Shin. This work of art was custom made of the finest exotic hardwood, but over the years it had weathered. Lynn immediately saw the potential in making a modern polymer replica of this unique design. One that wouldn't age, crack or splinter.
As a Martial Artist, Steven has spent decades using Bokken, so when it came to designing a walking stick, he incorporated elements of Bokken design into a unique crook topped stick. Lynn said As soon as I saw that stick, I immediately got it. Steven had addressed so many of the issues associated with crook top designs, and added so many elements that become immediately apparent to any student of the fighting arts! It's a functional crook cane, but it's also an amazing tool for the modern Martial Artist.
Whatever style you study, from walking stick defense, Japanese sword arts, stick fighting, tomahawk fighting, and even bayonet training, this design flows into everything! As Steven is a very tall individual, the Ten Shin is the largest offering in our walking stick series. Featuring the symbol for Ten Shin - literally Heaven Mind or Walking the Sacred Way - a phrase of great personal significance to Steven, and an honorific title passed down to him from one of his closest Instructors, this is an unusual walking stick imbued with true warrior spirit.
