    I like it, but more weight on the front end would help. I'd weld up a custom end with 1/2" round rod spikes. But I've got a welding shop, so that's cheating!
     
  4. Not a bad idea, only question/worry I have is how strong is that handle? Will it hold up to the force of impact derived from swinging it at a zombie head?

    The only problem I see is with the melee portion of this idea. Used in a stabbing fashion, the spikes would not result in much damage to something that does not rely on arterial flow, or other bodily support systems, not to mention would be a slower method of attack and recovery of the weapon to be able to attack again. The quickest method would be to make a blunt weapon with a slingshot pommel. That way you have bone breaking capabilities (break the skull, zombie dies; break the legs, you can just walk away casually), as well as your slingshot for finishing them off, hunting for food, etc etc.
     
  13. I don't know if I would say a stabbing attack is slow, I have trained a bit in martial arts and I have a deep love of the spear. I'm too lazy to post a video but you should youtube what someone can do with a spear before you say it isn't a viable option for zombie survival, you might be suprised what such a "slow" weapon is capable of.

    I saw friends using spears like i use a nunchaku. The speed they can get from those things is just crazy, practice must be the key.
     
  16. Yes, as with all things practice, practice, practice. And then practice some more.

    Not saying the spear is a slow weapon. I'm just saying that a spike-based stabbing weapon made from a pitch fork would not be ideal. Imagine jamming it into the skull of a zombie, to then have to dig it out. That is the slowness I was referring to.<br><br>I actually will be testing for my black belt in Taekwondo next month. What discipline did you train in?
     
  18. Awesome, good luck on the test! How long have you studied? I did a little Taekwando when I was little but I never really got into it, at least not enough to go after a belt. I did the bulk of my training in Aikido and Muay-Thai, I always hated facing anyone with a Taekwondo background, you guys kick so hard lol.

    Haha I've been at it for a while now. I initially started my training in shotokan early on, so I learned the japanese precision and strength which I employ in every technique. TKD is making good use of my long legs, and taking advantage of my existing leg strength, which is abundant. It's dangerous lol
