An automachete reminds me of a sword, except that the blade is a row of fast-spinning circular saw blades.  It’s used for cutting a path through jungle and forest, because it easily slices through leaves, twigs and small branches.

I used an automachete during our trip through the jungle of Sting 3.  It worked well, clearing a way through the bushes and creepers.  But I must say that, unless the jungle is very thick, it’s quicker and easier to push through.  See Report 39.
