    Yes, something is obviously missing from that picture. Rocky Patel, and 126 proof Booker’s. A little Dutch courage never hurts when you are about to face a horde of the walking dead.

    I think you have the right idea. But I'd like to suggest we step things up.

    Skip head to 3:40, where the fun starts. The link was supposed to copy at that time, but...

    This is actually the only rational answer to this question.

    I’m waiting on the zombie vs alien vs predator movie. o_O

    Arms and armor always develop jointly. If we had a real zombie problem it wouldn’t be long before we had a field deployable system capable of microwaving entire hordes of zombie brains into so much mush. But, until that develops I would go with an Estoc. It was a sword which evolved to deal with plate armor; which would work even better on zombie skulls.

    12" Ontario Machete.
    Effective but light weight, big enough for the task but small enough for enclosed spaces (you can use it in a car or an elevator).

    I always find it funny when people question how unrealistically soft zombie skulls are :D:p

    And then there are those who take the fun out of it and don't answer the question. So which knife there fella :mad:

    Most of us could afford one of those to just park in the back yard for "whatever". ;) Ya never know, right?

    The only rational answer to an irrational question. Added a word to your comment.

    Hey now. I do recall saying something about a kukri, a utilitarian fixed blade, and a folder for delicate cutting tasks.

    If I looked out my office window right now and I saw some ghouls trolling for grey matter, I'd grab what I have handy. That means nothing machete-sized and I'd be stuck with a six-shooter... but I've got a Bestech Spike in my pocket and a Real Steel Receptor in my desk drawer. My folder is bigger than my fixed blade but I suppose things could be worse.

    For sure not a folder.

    Something fixed blade. I have enough to choose from that it would be harder to narrow it down.

    I have large war axes, a pole axe, sword, and machetes and a handful of large choppers and fighters.

    Himilian Imports.
    Light fast Khukri 15 ounces, 13 inch blade (or so)

    Thicker multi fullered is 27-28 ounces. Either would take an arm or head.


    But still useful as general outdoors tools. The lighter/faster is better for light/thin vegitation.


    This one is a Geidymin Kapuscinski fighter. Full distal taper. Through tang construction, but it is a Beefy through tang. Micarta handle and dual layer epoxy impregnated cord. It will slash, chop, cut and stab. Back cut. Would take an arm or head. But less ideal for utilitarian work (like wood processing because of the nasty sharpened harpoon/back clip).



    Of course any edged tool/weapon would be in conjunction with a rifle/pistol combo.

    Would have to be a light saber. No need to worry about how hard or soft the skull is with this one. Ok, to be realistic, as if you can with zombies per se, a Chinese pole arm known as a Pu Dao, I think I saw something like it on Forged in Fire.

    Well, of course I have a pole axe on a 6'+ handle.

    Either axe or faceted hammer would do the trick. Need room to swing, and you are not jumping in and out of vehicles easily with it!!

    I also have a robust viking 'bastard' sword, shield, and a few battle axes.

    I’m a scrawny old dude with a bad hip. If it goes hand-to-hand with a pack of zombies, I’m screwed. (They always travel in packs, right?)

    Given societal collapse and all, I’m taking my 20 year old Gerber multi tool. The utility will serve me best.

    The Falkor Standard is a no-brainer.

    The G19 Beats out my P226 solely based on weight. Every ounce counts with a dorked up hip. Lighter gun = more ammo for the same weight.
