WHAT TOOLS DID THE AZTECS USE
What weapons did the aztecs use
The Macuahuiti was one of the close quarter melee weapons of the Aztec warriors and was a mix of club and a sword. The Macuahuiti was a flat wooden weapon made from a single piece of wood, with a handle and a flared head. The Macuahuiti had grooves on the head which the Aztec’s would affix small sharpened blades. The blades themselves were small individual pieces rather than one on each side and they were crafted from obsidian. The obsidian blades would be affixed with natural glue.
The Tecpatl was an Aztec knife or dagger that was made from an obsidian blade affixed to a wooden handle. The Tecpatl was traditionally a sacrificial weapon on the Aztec when they would make a blood sacrifice to appease their gods, but the Tecpatl would also be used in a battle as a close quarter fighting weapon to finish their foes off where needed.
