Fight the Military-Agricultural Complex?

The Vision of Yesha‘yahu ben Amotz:

And he will judge between the nations,
and decide for many peoples;
and they will beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruninghooks —
no nation will raise a sword against any other nation,
and they will no longer learn war.

(Isaiah 2:4)


The Word of God to Yo’eil ben Petu’eil:

Proclaim this among the nations —
Prepare war! Wake up the heroes!
Let all the warriors draw near and come up!
Beat your plowshares into swords,
and your pruninghooks into spears;
let the weak say, "I am strong!"

(Joel 4:9-10)


I have a replica medieval sickle that I bought off of Ebay when I realized that I probably wouldn't be able to get ahold of an actual (or replica) Ancient Middle-Eastern sickle-sword of the type our ancestors used. Except for Eihud ben Geira’. But he was left-handed, what do you expect? Anyway, I want to get the above two quotes engraved on the sickle, one on either side of the blade, in ketav ‘Ivri.

A sickle-sword (lifted from the Metropolitan Museum of Art):
Sickle sword, 1307–1275 B.C.; Middle Assyrian period, reign of Adad-nirari I
Mesopotamia
Bronze; L. 21 3/8 in. (54.3 cm)
Gift of J. Pierpont Morgan, 1911 (11.166.1)

There's a time to make peace and a time to fight. The wisdom is in knowing which time it is -
Right Now.

Would this machete be considered a "proper utensil", guys?

That's an interesting idea. Perhaps a company specializing in making swords could make it?
