Hi all,

I'm new, my name is Josh and I live in Texas.

I built this simple "Macahulti" like sword. It cuts through almost anything and consists of a straight steel blade.

It's very simple and is the first weapon I've ever made.

This is a smaller reproduction of an image I saw online. Though in the image, the handle was in the middle, this one is not. - More like earlier versions the "blades" are simply sharpened wood. (A "blunt-force" hit). Probably causing massing head injury.

The blade on that sort of weapon are normally obsidian shards.

Yeah, obsidian shards all the way up each side. And very sharp... Horse-decapitating kind of sharp.
