« on: January 28, 2012, 03:24:31 PM »
Machetes are standard equipment for any off road endeavor in the coastal South. Here is one that elevates this common tool to weapons grade hardware.

Niether, they both border on fantasy F head swords. Here's a couple more practical models:
Two Handed 21" Latin Machete
Bolo Machetes

Shades of Chuck Norris! Now how in the seven hells am I going to use a two handed Latin machete when I'm busy firing my Mac-10 with my weak hand? Hmmm? Think man!

Nah, I think I'll stick to my Ontario GI machete with the tip modified to a clip point in any event though the cutlass machete me gusto mucho. I might pick one up at the gun show if I see one for grins and giggles.

Hold it in your mustache! That way your weak hand ( Now wait a GD minute, does Chuck have a weak hand?) MAC-10 technique won't be fussed and your STRONG HAND is free for spinning back fists to the jaw!

I want that cutlass machete for my ZPAW closet. If I need serious cutting tools for work, that's what my Tremontina bolos and Becker knives are for. The niche machetes are just for funsies.

I have always wanted a gladius to play with, so I am getting that one for sure. The cutlass looks like it may be fun to play with too. I wish someone around here carried that kind of thing. I want to see how they handle.

Already have a CS Barong, and a Filipino ginunting, and a couple cheapass samurai swords given by friends. 'Fraid I'll have to pass.
Some people call the midwest the heartland, I prefer to think of it as the liver. Not too interesting, and easy to ignore until it quits working.

Guess I ought to tell you, my preference is a 1909 Argentine Short Sword.   
Shame Cold Steel hasn't come out with one of those.

I've seen both mentioned. I have a couple of C.S. sh**s & giggles blades. If I went with a Gladius, I want a full on real deal version. Heck, an even better modern take on the design. Hey! Ethan Becker! Any ideas!?!?  :hmm
