Just got back from seeing Surrogates, not a bad movie actually. There was a preview for a move called Book of Eli with Denzel Washington and he has a huge friggin knife, I want one.

http://book-of-eli-movie-trailer.blogspot.com/

It's easiest to see in the trailer under the 25th of September

I normally like Denzel Washington but I think this might be a bit outside his realm... not his niche for the skills he possesses, but hopefully he does a good job.

Anyways... doesn't look like anything spectacular... just some holes drilled in it for "zomg tactical" sense. Drilling holes is common for reducing weight, but obviously with 4 or so tiny holes wouldn't make much difference... and if it was for weight reduction, he'd have drilled more.

Kind of a dead thread but has anybody recognized the machete?

To me the shape of it looked like a Moro Barong from the Philippines.

Looks like something out of the BudK catalog to me. And anyone who knows about BudK knows the quality of their items is suspect. I sure as hell wouldn't bet my life on using it for anything other than a wall hanger.

It just looks like a barong or some other big ass knife/machete thing that was used as a prop in a movie. I'm sure BudK or someone will pick up a license to make one and sell it. It'll cost you about $19.95 plus SH.

If not, buy a cheap machete and drill holes in it.

As soon as I saw those holes in the blade profile during the trailer we watched at the theater, I looked at my wife and whispered "Bud K garbage".

We have enough of their catalogs sitting in the bathroom she knew exactly what I meant.

:lol:

They used to sell those in cheaper than dirt for about $7 dollars a piece or 5 for more than three or something like that. Get an Ontario or a Cold Steel they last.

I looked at the trailer and some stills. All I can say is it is not a modified Cold Steel 18" Barong...too much belly and the spine is too straight for other CS machetes. It is a barong shape however withe the belly that is common to this style blade. Most likely a made up prop as the comic book has him using an identical blade.

I have too much pride in the appearance of my home to hang a piece of BudK shit on the wall. I don't mind a lot of other questionably interior decorating strategies, but BudK is a no-go.

And we all got criticized by the cool kids for wanting a mask like ghost in MW 2. Not to threadjack but does this movie have any potential? all I have seen is Denzel with a knife and a sawn of or something.

The design looks to be sound though. The holes are ZOMG-tacticool probably, but the blade profile itself looks to be pretty solid as a large fighting knife.

Unless the top of the blade is sharpened then it fails as a thrusting weapon...that much steel creates a lot of drag through cloth and tissue. I prefer my 18" CS Bowie Blade Machete. With it's sharped top clip it is a good thrusting weapon.

Image

Of course the holes might act like holes on a cheese knife and let the brains slip off without sticking... :? :lol:

Doesn't need to be optimized for thrusting. Just look at the Butterfly Swords.

edited for grammar

You have a definite point(haha). But even a little nick opens you up to infection so it really doesn't matter if you get cut with a BudK wallhanger or a thousand-dollar custom piece in a survival situation.

I imagine those holes make a cool whooshing sound when you swing the blade.

When I think about it, an amplified whooshing might intimidate an enemy and make him/them backdown. :twisted:

While he's at it, Denzel might as well glue on a friggin' solar-powered MP3 player that has the sound of a shotgun being racked to get the most damage from that Bud K Uber blade!

(ka-chunk)

Yeah, that will make the bad guys go weak in the knees.

:roll:

While certainly true that the infection from an open wound may kill you in a week after the fight it is of little help to the guy who gave you that nick whose skull you use as a wine glass for that preceding week because all he managed to do in the fight was nick you and not run you through.
