Saxton's patent is an improvement upon whip-sections, which have been "required to be taken apart before they could be inserted in the cane portion". His invention allows for the adjustment "without similar disconnection of parts, and, when the smaller sections have been drawn out or extended to form the whip, they are secured in such position by a screw-joint formed by corresponding threads on their contiguous surfaces..."
