Razor sharp African style sword/machete made from an antique cross-cut saw. Incredibly well-tempered steel, it would bend in a circle when the saw was full length. Note the subtle full-height bevel away from the teeth for kerf clearance. I keep looking at this sword and thinking what an awesome pole-weapon it would make ...
