Where did u get the machetes????!!!! I've been needing a realistic (real) machete for a Jason Voorhees costume. That sure as hell looks like Home Depot. Plz tell me it is :)
In Minnesota there is a place called Harbor Freight. I know they have them there, and they are pretty cheap... $5 to $10.
we have them in california too if you live there
This might help too

You should remove the grips, put the machete ends inside a tube, weld and build a new grip.
and then make the blades not quite as broad

 Disappointing. I thought I would be able to construct a bisectioning glaive (Much similar to that of 'gabranth' from Final fantasy 12) using this instructable, yet, it only tells me the obvoius parts.
i had a thought of making something like this but never really got around to it

yes i agree that duct tape is a bad idea. i recomend u take the handles off the machetes the cut a notch in the ends of the dowels. drill two holes in the machete blades and on both sides of the dowel. then u can use a few bolts to hold the  machete blades in place.

note: if you do not wish to ruin those more expensive mechetes, you can get one for like ten bucks at walmart.

Tape,Duck!! If you start swinging that about, likely the blades will come out, certain if you hit anything with any force. Suggestion for improvements: 1: open mortise each end with holes to match the rivet holes in the tangs 2: reinforce the ends with something like copper pipe or wire binding/whipping If you want something more like a real naginata,use a six foot dowel perhaps with a counterweight at the butt. A bit of lead or a pipefitting would likely do.

you're gonna be twirling that around and the duct tapes gonna snap and your friends gonna have a machete in his eye

A better way would be to drill a hole in the mechette handle and get a round to square PVC converter that would fit the handle and put a bold through the mechete. thanks for the attention

using duck taps a bad idea
dont use duct tape for this remove the hand grip, split the the dowel in half along its length and figure it out from there (hint: epoxy is key and you'll need veneer to fill the gap)
