well you can't find a better tool for chopping through the jungle like through a bunch of tutsis.
>>
>>537881
they never developed much heavy armor and chopping weapons are great against unarmored enemies.

Why do people continue to believe most of Africa's population lived in the Jungle?
>>
>>538672
because we're still finding them in there.
>>
>>538689
The rainforest was always the least densely populated area of the continent aside from the desert. It's full of disease and there's no food.

Most niger-congo speakers (aside from pygmies) are scared shitless of forests anyway. In one bantu language "nightmare" translates as "the jungle is approaching".
>>
>>537881
it's the best weapon to chop jungle foliage, wild animals and rival tribe's arms
>>
Same reason that short, broad weapons were popular in the bronze age up til the Romans, they were easy to use and didnt require the wacky wild swordplay that larger and thinner swords required
>>
>>538722
>>537889
Maybe they had machetes to protect themselves from the jungle coming at them?
>>
>>537881
Billhooks are superior.
>>
>>540993
Do you mean in tool form or weapon form?
>>
>>541114
The tool obviously.
>>
>>537881
It's great for cutting off the hands of the people that didn't vote for you.
>>
>>537881
Why do people know the word falchion but never use it correctly?

D&D

Please don't call that a falchion.
Calling every single edge broad bladed sword a falchion is like calling every small dog a pug.
>>
>>538672
Because people have completely different opinion about Africa the people, and Africa the continent and Africa the wildlife. Each completely detached from the other
