Hiking pole in airport security


I have a two-section hiking pole. Can I carry it in my hands as hand luggage through airport security or security will create an issue? Otherwise, should I take it in my check-in luggage?

Please let me know if anyone is having an experience of it.

I have carried my tripod as a hand luggage in flights within India. However, I am not sure about trekking poles, being pointed at the end, they might not be allowed given the current scenarios in aviation. If you checkin, make sure they have a protective covering and are wrapped properly and marked fragile.
