Default Favorite Melee Weapon

I don't recall too many instances in my T2k playing/ref'ing of a PC using a melee weapon in combat, but there have been a few.

What's your favorite melee weapon (in T2k) and why?

If you have any in-game anecdotes about this topic, please do share.

I went with club, but the club I am thinking of is the ASP baton.

I went with machete because it provides an F-U to underbrush and limbs. I don't have any good melee stories as my characters have never been super excited about melee combat.

original group we played with back in college included a Native American who played his PC as one - and had him equipped with both a bow and with a tomahawk and both were used in combat during the game - he actually owned a tomahawk in real life and showed us how accurately he could throw it - was pretty damn impressive

I picked Fighting Knife, because it's what I know best.
