Lith: Should have stayed off his lawn
AverageAmericanGuy: So many people have machetes these days. They are great for hacking through underbrush, but terrible for actually trying to kill someone.I blame the movie Spy Kids for the recent proliferation of this much maligned blade.
omnibus_necanda_sunt: Perhaps they were suffering from zephyrillis?

I once knew a schizophrenic guy who'd make insane machetes that were heavy enough to lop someones head off. Had nice antler handles, too.

AverageAmericanGuy: Growing up, we had several machetes. I don't remember them being especially skinny.

catastrophe averted: coco ebert: "Eluded"?I've read about 100 news articles today. All but 2 of them contained some sort of grammar, punctuation, or syntax error. How do news agencies think this is acceptable? Where are the proof-readers? UGH!
sexorcisst: Inappropriate, Danny Trejo. Inappropriate.
J. Frank Parnell: AverageAmericanGuy: Growing up, we had several machetes. I don't remember them being especially skinny.Any typical machete just has a very small increase in size from hilt to the tip, and don't weight very much. I guess that's what i meant by skinny. His were larger overall, but also would have a bigger increase in size, so you could get much more powerful swings with that extra weight at the tip. I don't think it's the sort of thing anyone would manufacture and sell in stores for clearing brush. They were obviously crafted with violence in mind. As far as i know none were ever used for such, but they looked great.
