I read somewhere that the thought process started with a machete/ parang in mind....the lumpI tend to agree - its an , odd shape - If we are talking in terms of its intended use it obviously has the required length but why the additional midway weight and bulk? If its intended for slashing that could be achieved with equal length and less bulk. If its intended for stabbing again same thing can be achieved with the same length and a sharp point.
It obviously doesn't have a triangular blade profile which would make wounds remain open.
Its interesting but I can't see the reasoning for it to be designed in such a way. Any Idea?
Its quite a long long way from the FS designed pig sticker which was primarily intended for sentry removal I believe, this thing is more of a Oriental inspired small machete.
In the middle would certainly give some weight...wonder if in being in the middle it balances the blade somewhat?
