When it comes to ancient weapons, the first thing many think of is swords, spears, axes and bows.

But in reality there was much more unusual and exotic weapons.

The macuahuitl is a weapon in the form of a wooden sword. In his hand was embedded with prismatic blades made of obsidian (volcanic glass). It was like a large wooden club with cuts on the sides, and inserted the pointed pieces of obsidian, and then fixed with glue.

The length of the macuahuitl ranged from 90 to 120 cm. Since the macuahuitl was not sharp tip, it was impossible to use as stabbing weapons, but the jagged rows of obsidian fragments in hacking attacks left body of the enemy deep lacerations.
