    Yes, you read the title correctly. Let me explain. My friend and former guitarist is, after over ten years with the same woman, finally tying the knot this month. I'm a groomsman. Both of these individuals are far from pretentious and are having fun with the wedding (the invitations were done up like concert tickets). The wedding party is going to be entering the reception to different rock tunes. I'm walking in to Back in Black (the couple are walking in to Push It by Static-X). Somewhere along the line, it was decided that I would have a pimp cane or, walking stick if you want to be politically correct.

    I've been checking out the wares on Google. Obviously, I don't want to spend an uber amount of money, because I'm not planning on joining "the business" after the wedding, but I'm definitely into a sweet cane. Some I pose the question to you: What is the best pimp cane for metal (or blues-based hard rock if you want to be a genre nazi about it)?

    Well, a pimp cane is something specific. There are some cool cobra head canes, sword canes, but those evoke something different. What kind of a budget do you have?

    I thought it was the yellow pages, like the cops.

    Oh and BTW a nice wood dowel, and an old crystal door knob and some epoxy and paint can make a really pimp lookin pimp cane. Trim the door knob shaft to a few inches long then drill a hole in the end of your dowel and epoxy that puppy in place, then a little sanding and some black paint and some smallish gold accents painted on. Extra points if you can taper it, but even if you can't, paint it solid black and it will still be pimpin.

    That covers it. Hey, it's double your budget, but clearly there's only one winner -

    When I hurt my back I bought this awesome blue and black looking cane that is adjustable in a drug store. Before you try too hard, assuming you live in the US, check out a Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and/or any drug store and places like Walmart or Walmart in general.

    Same here. I was going to post a link to that episode, but @Ironbar beat me to it.

    Wifey has a thing for old and unusual walking sticks and canes and a lot of what she's got came from second hand stores and antique shops. No pimp canes though.

    If you can't find anything else you like, let me know. I've made a few walking sticks on my lathe with maple that was too heavy for baseball bats - a little more classy than pimpy, but always an option.

    You can't have a pimp cane without a crunk cup.
