« 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.

Dang! Which one ? The cutlass or gladius?

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

Times like this are when I'm most tempted to abuse my admin authority - to make the last couple posts didn't happen.
