    I can't speak with authority on the matter because I have limited experience with bats but there seems to be a few obvious flaws
    it has an unevenly balanced slash/smack part but it has a round grip
    stabbing is unsafe because there is no guard and the grip is straight and relatively even; palm supported stabs seem very unwieldy considering the length of the weapon
    I imagine that wooden baseballs also aren't manufactured to endure the kind of stresses (external or internal, depending on attachment) that the newly added blade causes the structure to receive upon impact either
    I imagine also that the wood stock used for bats differs, because of their intended purpose, from what you would want for smacking people

    personally I would take a macuahuitl with only one bladed edge or something like a machete with a rail-road track back profile over this

      It's like a apocalypse lapping.
      Bad design with what said.

      Now if you had some kind of bat matches kukra hybrid than that might be interesting.

        Looks like a Looney Tunes bat with a prefabricated "hit-him-on-the-head" shape.

        Having blunt ended loops instead of spikes or blades defeats the purpose. it might as well just be a weird looking bat. Maces are supposed to Pearce armor & cause blunt trauma all in one swing.

          not much armour going around so blunt loops are fine because they still concentrate the force on a smaller area and won't get stuck

            Checked and agree - nails would get tangled in shit; hit a watermelon with a nailbat and you're taking that watermelon for a walk.

              Retard you should be able to hit a watermelon with a bat so hard it explodes.

    For the cost of the bat, machete, leather, and labor you could have just bought a cheap sword.

    Shitty aerodynamics, no crossguard, top-heavy, fucks edge aligment, can't stab... I could go on. It's like a very shitty axe.

    for the same reason improvised weapons are largely looked down upon: unintended purpose -> high potential for lackluster performance

    Machetes are actually used for things besides the chopping people up you know. So this lacks the tool utility and has the drawback of questionable structural integrity.

    Round handle makes the blade difficult to index. The blade is installed with the grain of the wood making it liable to split when given repeated heavy impacts.
    Just put a long handle on the machete. Much better.
