  • Primitive weapon stockpile.

    Anybody out there stocking up on primitive weapons.
    I currently have knives, tomahawks, baseball bats, 1 axe and a longbow.
    I am considering the Cold Steel spear and perhaps a combat tomahawk.
    I can see a real need for weapons such as these where you don't need to replenish ammo or as in the bow you can make arrows. I will eventually run out of ammo. Another drawback is packing all the ammo with me if I don't have some sort of conveyence. How much ammo can you feasibly pack on your back. I was thinking about a sword but that would be to singular in use and from what I understand it takes a lot of practice to be any good with a sword.

    Actually to be good with any type of hand to hand weapon requires quite a bit of practice. As for a singular use weapon how can you not include a baseball bat in that catgegory? After all it is a club while you can use the sword for cutting and trimming with. Might want to consider getting a machete for your primitive inventory.

      I figured we could play baseball......LOL
      I am looking for a good machete but can't decide on what brand. They all seem to have good and bad reviews. I have also learned not to trust the reviews on online stores. Any reccomendations.

        I haven't been on here in a while. But I agree with your premitive weapon stock pile, I do the same thing. If it helps I am a Cold Steel dealer and may be able to get you a better price if you let me know what you are looking for and your price range or the price you are trying to beat.

          Hey nak check out the nice little kukri that Cold Steel makes for under 20 bucks. Have had mine for a couple of years now and used it camping and for doing yard work. Have gotten a few of them for gifts as well. Have not heard any bad feedback about them yet.

          Uhh sorry the price has gone up since I last ordered, they are now 27.

            I've owned a Batuex (spelling) machete for 30 years, they come out of Portland OR and make an entire line of bush knives.

              Kenno; I ran the name but didn't come up with anything. I am always interested in edged weapons.

                  as far as machetes go....condor makes a model called the "viking"......this is a fantastic choice...but it runs about $70.00 or so, but woth every penny. I personally prefer a sword that was made for cutting championships , they are of japanese design, go to a place on the web called cheness, these swords are unbelievable, I ordered one called the "Tiger Lily" it was $250.00, and worth every penny, this is a functional sword, not a punched out piece of garbage, it is sleek, razor sharp (no kidding), and fast, this is not stainless steel, it is a form of spring steel, amazing quality!

                    I have the Condor combat axe. Very good steel, good sheath. I think Condor makes some good stuff.

                      I have the best woomping stick around, and I will use it when its Mad Max time but until then I would be hesitant to bring a knife to a gun fight.
                      Just my thoughts on the subject.

                          I am a big believer in edged tools, both for cutting, chopping, slicing, etc. and also for fighting if necessary. As far as machetes go, these are simple, truly primitive tools. People around the world successfully use cheap machetes every day. While I usually favor quality, for machetes I say buy cheaper ones and buy more of them.
