Protosword

Primary Materials: Wood, Obsidian or Sharks Teeth This is a war club, generally a single handed weapon not as heavy as a "gunstock" club or a Maori taiaha (see Taiaha), but fitted with shark’s teeth or pieces of sharp obsidian to cause extra slashing damage with each attack. This type of weapon would be used in more sophisticated Neolithic cultures lacking knowledge of or access-to bronze or iron. In RPG's it is an ideal type of weapon for use by any human tribes which may be at a Paleolithic technology level as well as by many humanoid monsters. These weapons were called pacho, tbutje pacho, or macahuitil by the Aztecs. The Conquistadors considered these to be "swords" and described them as being very effective (though they seemed to lack the ability to penetrate iron armor). Roman sources describe similar weapons being used by the German tribes during the early Imperial period.
