Background


















Mr Manfred William Burger pioneer of the modern sword cane and master craftsman, trained as a tool and die maker.  He started making custom knives as a hobby in 1982 and gained voting membership of the Knife makers Guild of South Africa in 1986. Having always been interested in sword canes and their history, he set out to build the “perfect functional sword cane”  becoming a specialist in this field and has spent nearly three decades perfecting the art. Resulting in a range of seven quality models of unmatched quality, from the unique Titanium Stiletto Cane to the rugged Country Cane/Hiker to choose from.

In 1996 Barry, his eldest son, also a qualified tool and die maker, joined him making it a family business. Handling sales and expanding the brand at select custom trade shows in many venues around the world, built up a solid reputation for distinguished, bespoke craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality at all levels, with customer service the old fashioned way coming naturally.  This combination has evolved into a unique brand sort after by collectors and discerning customers.


All their quality canes are made in the age old tradition of old world craftsmanship where 90% of the work is done by skilled hands (sadly largely lost in todays modern world) In their specialized work shops situated in the lush green rolling hills of Kwa-Zulu Natal South Africa, overlooking the Indian ocean. This unique father and son team, ably assisted by Steven and Arnold, two highly trained Zulu assistants, produce a range of distinguished and world renowned hand crafted Sword Canes, Custom Canes, Custom Family Heirloom Canes, Country Canes and Hiking Staff’s of the highest quality which are sold world wide, backed up by excellent  customer service, making it a pleasure to own a "Sword Cane by Burger".
