Some walking sticks, or canes for blind people, can be pulled apart, with the segments remaining connected by a chain and spring arrangement.
Nunchaku Walking Stick uses the same arrangement, except the chain connecting the two segments has extra links. At the turn of a knurled knob, the extra lengths
of chain are released from storage inside the shafts, locked in place, and the previously benign walker becomes a weapon of fearsome capacity.

nanchaku versus sword... guess who wins? [xenzag, Jan 04 2013]
||I appreciate subtly carryable weapons, but the thought of having to learn to use nunchaku dismays me. Nonetheless, (+).
||Just twirl it around and make yelping sounds like Bruce Lee. Should do the trick on a dark night.
||Except in tight spaces or against long bladed
weapons, a nunchack doesn't have a significant
advantage over a staff in combat.
