Practical, well, most of them are everyday tools after all, not weapons. Which is a good thing as long as you're not fighting I guess.

I hate these things. Not for their design or use.I have a player who refuses to use any other weapon when he makes a character. He will find a way to shoehorn it into all his characters. We played a vampire game set in prehistoric south america and he convinced the dm he should be able to make a set.

It's not really better, just different. It's kind of like wielding a machete, the thing has a mean cleave and it will sever joints and break bones because it's primary purpose is cutting through vegetation and branches and such. In that way it's a bit like hatchet, but it has less reach and is better at slicing. Pretty bad at thrusting though, and generally cutting blades have less reach for their length than thrusting ones.

Here's a khopesh form the tomb of Usermaatra Setepenra Meryamun Ramses II. About as sharp as a mace flange as you can see. Though admittedly this may have been more because it was a ceremonial piece and less an attempt at drag mace (as in queen, not race).
