for the purposes of reality, just how many people are actually skilled or have been trained in using edged weapons for killing or self defence?

so even suggesting a particular type of edged weapon over another is just useless unless they get some sort of training.

I have to agree with Axxe, in terms of any combat scenario, edged weapons aint very useful. Edged weapons havnt been prevalent in combat for over a hundred years

no you don't agree with me. because you failed to read what i posted as usual. i never said they were useless, only useless if a person doesn't have the skillsor training to know how to use them. it's no different that a gun or any tool for that matter. if you lack the skills or the training, the object, irregardless whether it's an axe, a machete, a firearm or a chainsaw then you have no business thinking you do know how.

FAUSA, you might spend more time learning reading comprehension in school rather than worrying about playing your video games when you get home. you nonsense comments are getting pretty lame.

E tool. I can cut and hurt things with an E tool. I can't dig a hole to drop a deuce in with a hatchet or machete.

I switched from an ax to the Gerber Gator Machete Pro for my bug out bag because of it is more versatile, small size and weight and reasonable price. I also use and recommend a Standsport wire saw for the bug out/ survival kit.
