In my quest to get a Machete subgroup added; I'm stinking up other groups with machete related posts. This video represents my existential dread of growing older and less capable; while at the time illustrating that machetes are so awesome that even when they are broken they still kick ass.

My main interest is in combat rather than sport throwing .

So you are throwing from variable , unpredictable range with both the target and thrower in motion .

You are probably also throwing whatever you happen to have handy , and probably not a special throwing knife .

Under these conditions , I think throwing something with some mass and force , that will do damage and cause distraction , even if it doesn't stick perfectly, is preferable .

Broken machete could work for this , IMO . :p:thumbsup::thumbsup:
