For my space opera series, I am thinking of giving my main character a machete made from a very special metal. The machete will be similar in design to the picture above with the exception of a number of differences. I recently discovered that there is a special martial art in Haiti that involves using a machete in combat. This martial art is similar to fencing in the sense that it is a one-handed style that relies on elaborate footwork. I am thinking of having my main character fight in a similar fashion, but his style will be a balance between strength and speed as well as offense and defense.
