If you read the Belize news for a while, you will see reports of "choppings". It seems whacking your "enemies" with machetes is almost as popular as shooting them. So don't start any fights with your knife or you may end up in a Crocodile Dundee type situation "That's not a knife. (Dundee draws knife) Now that's a knife."
