    Do you mean the machete that Denzel's character uses?

    Though I'm not sure what kind it is, I posted pictures so other people have some reference.

    Does his character only have one arm? The second pic looks like it's missing, the first seems to suggest he has one though.

    No, he's just a very classy swordsman. We all do the hand-behind-back thing from time to time. Great for showing off in jest and in film, but in real combat, it's basically useless. However, on the subject of his machete, I'm pretty sure it was custom made specifically for the film. I'll double check and get back to you as soon as possible

    I just typed in "cool machete" in google image search and found this:


    IDK what exactly it is and it's not the exact on, but it's a start.

    I found a couple more that look like it, but the holes are on the wrong side of the blade.

    I swear it almost looks hinged in the trailer, like it swings open when he's pulling it out.

    Someone said Bud K sells one like it, but I don't know for sure....it looks like a tricked-out kukri design.

    BTW, ol' Denzel was trained in hand-to-hand martial arts by a protege of Bruce Lee, Dan Inosanto.

    Khukri,or Kukri A Nepalese melee weapon, similar to what Alice uses in 3rd Resident Evil film and The Mariner in Waterworld.

    I'm in the process of spec'ing out a full-scale AutoCad drawing for this machete (which I will make available for free, here), but I need a good image of the handle/haft...anyone got any?

    I was not quite right with the kukri correlation...the kukri has a definite forward curve/break in the blade....



    ....and Eli's blade is more of a machete, with a straight spine and slight drop-point:




    ....or just a plain big-ass knife!

    Here's a couple of stunts from the movie. First pic is a final, screen used knife. The second one is the 'blade' only before the handle is applied (and before it's painted silver, these are both just rubber stunt knives), so you can see the entire blade shape.

    And they can be yours for the low price of $2499 and $999...

    I'm making one now for my boss. It will be water jet out of a large sawblade.
    I'll see if the guy can cut some more blanks.

    There was a thread on this machete when the movie first came out.

    Might have some more info on it.


    Yeah and Sifu Dan taught Bruce everything he knew about Nunchakus.

    The next day Bruce was showing Dan things he never dreamed of doing with them!
