Halacha - Walking with a Cane on Shabbos
Submitted by Israel Seldowitz  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The only heter to use a cane in a place without an eiruv is because it is considered an extension of the body, like an extra limb. A cane does not achieve that status for someone who can walk inside without it.
