I did a cooperation with James Helm, fellow Zombie Squad member, who is a blacksmith working from out of Texas. He says about himself "Proud to be a Neo-Tribal Metalsmith scavenging the wreckage of civilization". I like that a lot! His blades are mostly made from steel you can harvest from truck leaf springs. He leaves the hammer marks on his blades, but sharpens the edges so you can shave the hairs of any of your body parts So I asked him if he would be interested in a cooperation. He said yes! It took about one year to happen. I wanted a short sword, ideal for short distance fighting, but powerful enough to chop Zombie heads of with ease. He finally made this blade for me: I decided to also use scrap material, that can be found in a post apolcalyptic world, so the final weapon would look like the weapon of a post Zombie pandemic survivor and warrior. I started with these parts: I went for a hilt that looks intimidating and bad ass, and retains the powerful but homemade look. This is the result: Then, I made the sheath, from plywood of course (three layers of 6mm). I settled for a stiff harness, so the sword can be drawn with one hand. I attached three layers of TBG, for secure Zombie killing power. Will do a video later today!
