Thanks - I'll be sure to check them out when I'm back in Toronto for thanksgiving.

Do you guys remember what price range they were in? I'm guessing around ~300 Canadian? Also, do you know if they are made in China? I have heard they are very durable, regardless of where they are made.

I don't know the prices but considering distributor markup + Canadian dollar markup it's gonna be real high.

they're made in Japan.

Klaxon Howl is a very nice shop and I love the stuff they carry, but soooooo that's pricey for some canes!

I figured it was in line with ordering them from history preservation ($217+ shipping+duty+guessing how they fit). Plus if you like what they are doing, then people should buy from them or they will be gone. They were cheaper than RRDS at due west ($300) when I checked there.

I could not bring myself to spend $80 for a tshirt with a silk screen of a penny farthing boneshaker though.
