    I LOVE, basically all my Bali's, used em for camping a few times and everything from box opening (duh) probably more Bali's:stu: to prying open my watch (wasn't me, my jackass dad potentially blunted my expensive blade)

    You must also consider is the effect on other potential survivors, like they might respect/fear you more cuz you are proficient with a butterfly.

    That said, I can't decide if, in reality, love should win out when the shit hits the fan (and/or brains)

    So whats is gonna be then, eh? Obviously you might also carry a machete or, like me, a kickass katana (but can't leave the "pocket" knife behind).

    ...if I was only religious, I would pray for the zombies.

    PS not a bayonet. Not a gun oriented question, think stealth here (yeah yeah silencers exist but are rare for most ppl)

    If it had to be pocketable, I would go with something like an Emerson Jupiter Commander: big blade for cutting, big handle for striking, recurve edge for longer cutting length than a straight edge. It wouldn't be my first choice for an apocalypse blade - katana, machete, kukri come to mind as reasonable EDC for that - but if I had to have something in my pocket, that's the first one that comes to mind.

    Cheapness comes in handy when the use is just a frivolous chore, but wouldn't you want something with a bit more hypothetical reliability? I.E something made of, 154cm, elmax, etc etc and by a brand that is worth a damn.

    If the zombies were here a knife would be the last thing I would worry about. I'd be worrying about how I would carry all my ammo, and beer!

    All of my user knives are cheap, wouldn't want the zombie goo on my good knives. I'm thinking ball bat if just a few and the AR or Glock if there are a bunch of em.

    right off the topI grab my cold steel shovel..Design after WW1 german shovel ,,heavy gauge steel with a razor sharp blade ,,The thing is deadly ,,Germans used it like an ax durning hand to hand combat .:lightsaber:

    second is my D handle Nepolonotic era saber ,, this to is deadly ,,it'd more of a slice and dicer and it needs a good sharping ,,I used it for trimming a pine tree in the spring ,,yes I used a 150 plus year old sword to shape a pine tree :badidea:

    Te last is my future pike made by Hellizin Here on JD I still got to get a pole for it and get her done ,,
    but all and and all ,,no ammo ,, I have these toys of self perseveration below pictured . I also can make traps much like the one from Nam useing ropes and sticks I learned from my father who job was go in a area and find and defuse such evil traps :skullav: while he was in Nam

    :goodpost: Congratulations, kickass post that really grasps the depth of the question.
    Also, that's a wicked shovel; would not have considered a shovel before seeing that, but that really combines at least 3 things in one: sliciness, shoveliness, and macheteness.

    Actually I realized my earlier response listing the knives was more for the living, hence my response that Z Nation had it right along with begreen61. Running out of ammo maybe, never Z Weed.

    Perhaps I will give z Nation a shot soon; I've been on a walking dead kick, but stopped/skipped a season when Negan came around, because it was too much for be as everyone of his thoughts an actions was like spot on for how my guardian keeps up her life (got injured and my disgusting sister now gets my, ~5000$ monthly disability/unemployment. But it's OK, she gives me 400 bucks a month:banghead:. And I have no medical bills/doctor visits so all I can see is her pocketing 4600 a month, but she is such an "evil negotiator" that the rest of my fam is OK with because she stays calm as a cucumber, and I with all the fucked up shit happening to me get a wee bit emotional;
    It's kinda hard to keep a pokerface when you are metaphorically being stabbed in the dick.

    It's been 5-6yrs and she purposefully has been denying me the ability to take the damn disabled license test(29ys old and that bitch stole like 4 of my knives, one of my cars, an uncountable sum of MY money, and is letting my Mustang decay in her shitty shed while i can only imagine that my idiot family is patting her on the back while she is sipping margaritas and having her 5th child or something. I have no idea how any non brain dead judge would issue her a fucked up life when she has a thousand kids that she obviously cares about more than her legal obligation to what use the be her brother.

    At least I know without question that I'm smarter than that cunt and know I am legitimately a decent human beings; to give you an idea, she resembles Negan/Governer/Hitler/Cleopatra more than anyone else. Her kids are gonna be fucked later on, and even though I'm the Uncle, she probably sees me as a danger to her offspring indoctrination so I can't/don't talk to them

    Damn sorry to hear that! Anybody let my Mustang decay would be hurting bad! I couldn't get in to The Walking Dead, the drama nauseates me, Z Nation is a breath of fresh air. Its funny, gruesome and off the wall, some drama but I can handle it.

    I don't like to try say/do bad things (but 9000% yes); as i said in the op I pray for a zombie scenario (or similar) so intense actions get more, questionable/acceptable as to legality/fault. I am a bit of a dreamer, but I have to be with my SHITuation. You have NO idea how badly i want to have a FAIR duel to the death with her like they did in 16th century Japan. I would even lend her a sword for it, but that would just wind me up in the coco's nest, AGAIN... I swear to Bog she has no soul.
