Are you looking to protect your home? There are many ways to protect your home and they are not mutually exclusive. For example, some people say “get a dog.” Others will tell you to get an security alarm while still, others say to keep a gun or other weapons.
Bladed Weapons from Antiquity
While a gun is not a bad choice, you may want to consider a bladed weapon in addition. You see, it doesn’t hurt to have more than one option. What’s great about a steel-less weapon like a Macuahuitl is that it wasn’t designed to kill, but rather to maim (decreasing your chances of a wrongful death lawsuit or possibly going to jail).
Weapons like this also serve as art. They look great on your wall!
