7. Right now I just have a basic aluminum adjustable cane

And I probably won't need one enough to bother getting a nice one. Even before my surgery with two bad knees I hated using a cane. I prefer having my hands free and the cane didn't make the knees hurt less.

I will use either my walker or a cane out in public until the second knee is healed. I find that people pay more attention and have less tendency to cut me off or let their children run into me if I 'look' handicapped.
