    I am far more forgiving of the second than the first, but even that isn’t worth getting het up about.

    Yes – the “almost” is unnecessary and jarring. The sentence is far better without it.

    The second example is trying to convey that the owner of the cane was *holding* it like a sword and pointing it towards the person coming at him. I am ok with that. But yes – the “as if” is superfluous and unhelpful there. It *is* warning.

    I have a feeling that you are upset by this because the writer is doing the same sloppy thing several times in quick succession.
