more like a heavy machete, some of my land has hundreds of Locust trees on it and they have lots of sharp barbs on the limbs and the saplings. I want to be able to hack my way thru.Looks like a good start. Are you going to make it a hacking style blade (hatchet) or a sawing style blade when you finish it off?
but only if you HAD to I personally wouldn't go looking for trouble with only THAT unless I was VERY hungryIt looks like you could also grind the handle area down and make a really great spear head. Attach that sucker to a long pole and you could bring down a wild boar very easily or fend off a bear pretty well. :hmmm:
