This horrifying five-foot weapon has been recovered by police during a knife amnesty.
The three-handled sword with a blade at either end, designed to be swung like a paddle, shocked officers who took custody of it.
The blade is believed to be a stainless-steel copy of a Klingon weapon used in the science fiction series Star Trek. "It's an extremely dangerous weapon," said a martial arts expert last night.
It's less dangerous than the katana I have sitting upstairs on my bookshelf. Which I assure you will part a neck much faster than any bat'leth ever will. A bat'leth is a composite tonfa and blade - easier to block with, harder to swing. Less specialized for slicing.
But don't tell it to the banners. Once the paranoid nanny-staters get going, there's no stopping the damn fuckheads...
Anyone wanna take bets on how much longer before you're not allowed to posess tire irons and hammers in England?
