What is a Patriot Cane

A Patriot Cane is a walking cane that has been engineered into a more stable and safe cane. With a strategically-designed lower solid steel core shaft, Patriot Cane also provides self-protection.  Our canes are built to support all people, without being politically oriented or being for or against any ideal or cause.


My name is Ron; I am a Veteran with a special weapons background.  I became interested in forming this business because I felt vulnerable while using an ordinary cane. Like most people who use a walking cane, I felt like a target, alerting criminals that I was less able to defend myself, thus easy prey.  

I searched for a product that would provide self-protection and pack a punch, if needed.  Not finding what I was looking for, I re-engineered the walking cane into providing better stability, safety and self-protection.  The resulting 

product -- Patriot Cane -- was such a success that I decided to share it with others.

Being Prepared is Better than Being a Victim

Our end user is anyone who feels vulnerable in public while walking with a cane. Our aim is to enable all people

 looking for safety, security and stability with a product that provides the support needed.  

These canes are wonderful gifts for people who already “have everything.”

What our customers are saying

Just ordered a cane from you.  I'm 67 and female, wanted something I could also use as a weapon.  Thanks so much for your service and sacrifices.  @*****cat

@Patriot Cane ... thanks for the follow.  I got one of your canes a while back.  Tremendous cane.  Great value, especially when you consider its extra utility.  @The Freeload**

Dear Fellow Patriot -- Your Patriot Canes are awesome.  You nailed it with your correct mind set of those who find themselves in need of support to walk.  Vulnerable!  These canes will give a boost of confidence to tough guys and gals who are adjusting to challenges with walking.  @CroweCove

 Folks, I own one of these canes, and I will tell you that these things are very special.  If you're in need of that "third leg" or you know someone who is, there is no better cane on the market.  They're strongly built, but have the additional benefit of being a useful self-defense item, something useful when you visually fall into what predators think of as "prey."  Sure, carry a concealed weapon, but remember that you will have this in your hand, and it will deliver powerful blows that will buy you the time to deploy that weapon.  I'm so in favor of the idea that I bought mine before I have need for it.  An older friend is having knee replacement surgery this summer, and when he can graduate to a cane, I'm buying him one.  They're that good.  @Freeholder  

Just to let you know, yesterday (9/27/18) the back wasn't too good so I was using the cane I bought from your FINE OUTSTANDING COMPANY.  Walking (not really well) to the car in Chicago, an individual decided I must be an easy target (I guess coloration and gray in the beard).  Long story made short, your product works great, and has no damage, thank you.  @Shepherd B*****

 I ordered the Air Force (yup, Air Force puke here) design; fortunately, I do not need one on a regular basis, but when the back goes out, they help getting around. 

The cane came in a short time later (they actually had to catch up on the USAF ones and it only took an extra day). It came well packed and in beautiful condition.

The paint and graphics were well done and look to last a long time with heavy use. I laser engraved my name on the lower shaft and that worked great. The paint was resistive enough that the 60 watt laser had to run it at 100% power and 30% speed, three times, which is what I use for glass (the hardest to work with and I only run that one time) which again tells me the paint is quality designed for heavy use without showing damage. 

So I took this to my American Legion Post to show it off. Without being told, all the members that picked it up referred to its weight and how it would make a great defensive item, if needed. 

Currently, the cane can actually stand on its own with the weight and the pad at the bottom. I figure that will change with use, but as far as I am concerned, it shows quality in construction and forethought in design. Overall, this is a great item to have when you need it. 

I figure when I have to go somewhere that I am unable to carry a weapon, I just claim back trouble and take the cane. It makes a great backup (like when I had to go into Chiraq for jury duty). The only problem I see is that I will have to order more for those Veterans that don't do too good on the computer. 


@Dogman1013 bought a U.S. Navy cane and writes:  If you use a cane, I would strongly recommend checking out @PatriotCane products.  Beautiful workmanship, attention to detail and better than any other on the market for self-defense.   Don't let the chronic pain decide how you will live your life.  PatriotCane can help you be more active while helping you stay safe and look stylish at the same time.

Honored and Humbled

Mrs. Lynn Bukowski writes:  I am writing to thank you for your generous donation of a U.S. Navy cane for my use as I recover from a serious broken leg and subsequent surgery.  That it was sent to me in honor of my husband, Master Chief Steve Bukowski, a U.S. Navy SEAL, touches my heart and makes me feel as though he is with me every step of my recovery.  I am honored and humbled...with grace and gratitude, Lynn Bukowski

With our hearts filled with gratitude and eyes filled with tears, we thank all you brave men and women who sacrificed so much, so that we could have freedom, a better life, and a country to call home. Happy Veteran’s Day.

“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate 

our heroes and she-roes!” ~Maya Angelo

     A hero is defined as a champion, a conqueror, an illustrious warrior, a person admired for achievements and noble qualities, one who shows great courage; a she-roe is the female form of the same.

     Thanks to all veterans who served and are serving in the U.S. Military Forces…both the heroes and the she-roes! This month, I dedicate my commentary to Navy SEAL Master Chief Steve Bukowski and his wife, Lynn…both heroes in their own right.

     I presented Ms. Angelo’s above quote to Lynn as wanting to use for the opening of this commentary. She replied with “I do not think of myself as a ‘she-roe’. I think this is through me, not of me.” 

     She is speaking of her husband’s dream of a special retreat for returning warriors and their families to acclimatize back into society. The conviction to bring Steve’s dream to a reality was “given” to Lynn “…one morning in 2013” – three years after Steve left this world. Let me give you some background on the Bukowski’s.

     Lynn shares a quote from Steve: “We do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.”  Steve was trained and raised, so to speak, by the Frogmen of Vietnam and did not sway for an instant from those lessons. Married for 31 years at the time of his death in 2010, Lynn stood by his side through thick and thin. Their commitment to each other was witnessed by many…their dream to help others ingrained in their very souls.

     After 32 years of living on the edge of death and two more years working for a contractor, Steve fully retired.  They owned a small ranch in North Carolina, had a few horses and a full-on dream for a house full of grandchildren and the creation of a safe place to which his Brothers would come when they were done with their part in saving the world.

Steve’s vision became Lynn’s mission

     I’m speaking of Landing Zone Grace Warrior Retreat. LZ-Grace is located in Virginia and provides a place of respite for combat weary warriors and their families. The goal is to provide a sanctuary of rest, renewal and hope to Special Operations Forces (from all branches of the military) transitioning from combat to life at home. Brother to brother, husband to wife, family to family - around the dinner table, at the fire pit, spending time with horses and companion dogs, tending to home-grown gardens and farmland, kayaking, reading, playing hard or just resting – the need to isolate may lessen, the stress will dissipate and a solid new beginning will be found through and with each other.
    The retreat’s philosophy: There is a small window of time where military personnel return from deployment faced with readjusting; this is called re-entry. Their experience in this time is important for each soldier returning from a mission; it is a time when he or she can mentally and physically become accustomed to life outside of war and trauma. This time is strategic and proper resources - including family, accountability, nature and human connection in a safe place - can make the difference between health and well being during transition or an ineffective adjustment to so-called ‘normal’ life. 

     Everything comes with risk. But if a Warrior lives through war and lands at LZ-Grace, there is nothing that cannot be overcome or achieved. When men and women release what they have lived through and find connection with one another, souls are inspired to live on; to use their scars as roadmaps and to pass their strength and experience forward to be of service to the world. 

     The Navy SEAL Creed, of which Steve lived: My loyalty to Country and Team is beyond reproach. I humbly serve as a guardian to my fellow Americans always ready to defend those who are unable to defend themselves. I do not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions. I voluntarily accept the inherent hazards of my profession, placing the welfare and security of others before my own.

     Steve died as he lived, on his own terms with no fanfare or drama. Lynn continues fulfilling his dream daily as CEO of LZ-Grace. For more information on the LZ-Grace retreat, please email Lynn at or visit the web site at

     Note: Most of this commentary was taken from Lynn’s own writings. However, I have to interject my personal comment: Thank you, Steve, for the vision; thank you, Lynn, for carrying out his vision. You two are still working it out between you, within you, for those who need you. Veterans in their hearts – both Steve and Lynn – are our hero and she-roe. And, Lynn, we salute you on this mission of love!

     As Paul Harvey has said: “Good Day!”

 Florida (August 7, 2018) Introducing a trendy self-defense tool in a walking cane

The Patriot Cane is specialized in that each cane is engineered with a strategically-designed lower solid steel core that provides added stability, safety and self-protection while appearing like an ordinary walking cane.

As one of our customers noted in his review of the cane, “It is loaded.” Another customer noted, “The weight is perfect. It is light because it is made of aluminum. But it is weighted enough to use defensively should the need arise.”

About Us – Who we are

We are the Joseph’s --- a family-owned business who introduced our self-defense walking canes earlier this year. Ronald is a veteran who has a special weapons background and Toni acts as the website administrator as well as the office manager. 

Our goal is two-fold: First, to introduce a trendy self-defense tool in a walking cane that will strengthen stability and support for consumers; whether needing a cane as an aid to walk or someone who wants to feel safer from the criminal-types in our society, or even animals, our canes also provide a device for self-protection.  Second, to build our brand and reach out into the world in order to expand our business so we can hire veterans as employees; thereby providing a special skills training and employment.

We offer a variety of cane designs, colors and styles. We have special military-themed canes to trendy-themed canes such as for Breast Cancer or the Marijuana “Chronic Pain” cane to our Basic Black. Each cane is individualized and exclusive to the customer’s request; such as being shortened so that when it is not extended, it fits into a back pack.
