Macuahuitl.
I want it.

Dude south and central american warriors weren’t no fucking joke

Aztec sword from north america

Heavy-ass wooden club with a ton of razor-sharp obsidian blades sticking out just for good measure.
[from Wikipedia]
"The maquahuitl was sharp enough to decapitate a man. According to an account by Bernal Díaz del Castillo, one of Hernán Cortés’s conquistadors, it could even decapitate a horse:

'Pedro de Morón was a very good horseman, and as he charged with three other horsemen into the ranks of the enemy the Indians seized hold of his lance and he was not able to drag it away, and others gave him cuts with their broadswords, and wounded him badly, and then they slashed at the mare, and cut her head off at the neck so that it hung by the skin, and she fell dead.'”


If I were the Spanish, I’d fucking run the fuck out of that jungle and never come back.

Except where would you run to? Cortez burned the ships so no one would try and escape. He wanted death or glory on this expedition.
Anyways, that is an awesome fucking club.
