A wired cane was a tool used by some rogues when pickpocketing.[1]


Wired canes were attached to a rogue's hand by a thin wire. By pretending to be crippled, the rogue could approach a target without raising suspicion, allowing them to pilfer coins from the target's purse.[1]

Some wired canes were hollowed out and had a hinged handle, allowing coins and small gems to be stored within the barrel of the cane.[1]


The cost of a wired cane depended on the material from which it was made, but most could be acquired for 3 – 10 gold.[1]
