So, in a nearly local gunstore, I found a machete with a billhook on it. I don’t understand this weapon. It looks like you would have to slash past your target, then pull the weapon in toward yourself. I like it, but it looks like a non-useful weapon. It can’t be used as an axe, because where an axe would have an edge, the billhook is blunt. Where other machetes have a point, this one is flat.
What is the point of this weapon, and how would you use it? Is it more useful than I realize?
