    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)

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

    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.

    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)

    A knife that fits over the barrel of a rifle.

    Not including bayonets, like imagine you set down/lost you firearm, and a zed just popped out of nowhere or something.

    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.

    So, Snake, what's it gonna be once your handgun runs outta ammo? AND you just smoked your last spirit.

    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.
