The maquahuitl (a name that was derived from the Nahuatl language) is a weapon shaped like a wooden sword. Its sides are embedded with prismatic blades made from Obsidian, a volcanic glass stone frequently used for tool making by the Aztec and other pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures. It was similar to a large wooden club with cuts in the side to hold the sharpened Obsidian.
This length of tempered wood, also called a macuahuitl, has bits of shark teeth, Obsidian, glass, or similar materials studded all along its length.
