I am thinking of including this handy dandy weapon in my fantasy book. It is called the Panabas and it is from the Philippines. It was a combination between a sword and axe. In addition to combat, this blade was also used in executions. I watched it demonstrated in Forged In Fire and let me tell you it can make heads roll! What do you think?
