I mean seriously, it bows inward. Why would you do that with a weapon? At least if it arches outward it could be used for slashing. But as it is for a straight thrust you need to get with nibbling range. I mean if if your opponent had a dagger it would be in your gut before the inward bowing made impact.

And the way you swing it around your body, it's like you want to loose a hand. Or ear. And those sharp, spiky bits on the tip? Why would you swing it around like that. You would be concentrating more on not taking off your own hand then on fighting the other guy.

No thanks on the funky weapon. Gimme a sword. Straight and to the point, if you catch my drift.
You said it, Ravenstein!! Regular Swords beat Bat'leths any day!!

I may use a Bat'leth at the moment, but that is only because I do not have access to my trusty Shishioh Blade. I hope Starfleet procurement can fix this situation as soon as possible.
