    If you are planning on carrying one of these for camping or hiking you should consider perception, don't want to frighten the sheep. The one that looks machete like is an acceptable bush design, a double edged sword is not.

    If he's in a spot where he needs a heavy machete, I doubt there will be many "sheep" around calling the cops over the shape of the machete. And what if he needs to scare off a wild forest crackhead? The sword-shaped one will look more intimidating.

    Ahh yes, the dreaded Shetland cavalry charge, one of the most feared military maneuvers in the ancient world. It took the advent of the suction cup arrow and the massed nerf boomerang volley to really put an end to its preeminence on the battlefields of yore.

    Right.

    And between the pony at full tilt and my feet dragging on the ground (Im 6.4), I should have the enemy forces in stiches for long enough to close the distance and going to work with my sabre.

    Wait, you have them in stitches before you even get there? You must have a glare so steely it cuts, but your foes have truly impressive emergency medicine sewing skills. This would be a battle I would totally rent on Pay Per View.

    You may want to contact James Helm a maker here on BF as he makes some nice swords and weapons you may find interesting. I'm not sure if his books are open but I believe he's well within your price point. Here's a pic of one of his bush swords which I'm wanting to also get.

    Maybe it's just me but it seems that frightening the sheep would be a good thing. I mean, I go into the woods to be alone, fear might compel them to take the drum circle elsewhere... I'm gonna start carrying my sword on my hikes.
