    Those are actually different cases. A sword-cane is considered a concealed weapon, while carrying a sword openly is not. Concealed weapon laws vary state-by-state, but in about forty of them, you need to get a concealed weapons permit; in about two of them, no permit is required; in the rest, concealed weapons are illegal. (Though it should be noted that concealed carry laws only apply outside of one's residence.) Laws for carrying weapons openly also vary state-to-state, usually it's generally permitted as long as it's not called "disturbing the peace"; however, I do think it's illegal in a few states. Sword-canes, specifically, have been banned by name in several states and a fair number of Western countries.

    But what if you need to defend yourself while in public?
    I wouldn't be collecting the swords to defend myself.

    Wait, how did this discussion go from you saying that you prefer training with swords to defend yourself to you not collecting and using swords to defend yourself? confused I think I missed some faulty logic or vagueness somewhere.

    Sword training can be defense. Collecting swords might not be -- you don't need a dozen swords to defend yourself.

    I don't recall saying that I preferred to train with swords to defend myself over all of the other martial arts. I just stated that swords were awesome, which is why I started taking iaido. Although iaido can be used as self-defense if you're ever in a situation that would require that, that isn't what it's used for today. Now, it's just practiced as an art.

    Well, it's not boring, and you can use it to fight. Every single technique that you learn in iaido can be translated into hand-to-hand combat.

    It probably wouldn't be any more complicated than karate.
