Add the following to the list of amazing.
Zombie Tools is a collection of guys that are full-on ready for the apocalypse. Describing themselves as "deadly serious" in creating gear to increase ones survival of such an event, they show incredible skill at metalsmithing! Based in Montana they use American made steel and aluminum to cut the shape from steel, heat and hammering the blade into shape... and they do stellar work.
Check out the "Bone Machete 2012"
Wow! This is one cool looking piece of slice and dice.With it's handguard handle, you can protect your fingers from what they describe as "all manner of ill-fortune you might find in the fray." It comes with a sheath and leather-wrapped grip. 25" long blade; Weight - just over 2 lbs.
Now have a gander at "The Mack Daddy-O"
Modeled after the Chinese great sword, or dadao, you could hack and slash about anything with this piece and look really freakin' cool doing it. Weighing 4 lbs 13 oz, this blade could (as they say) "almost certainly decapitate a unicorn."
These are just two of many incredible works of art that could hack thru a horde in a matter of minutes. I highly recommend checking them out.
Aim high. Run fast.
