    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I have a Zefal pump that fell out of my pannier and got run over by a semi truck. Since it has a black handle and the paint got rubbed off the barrel by all the pumping I did and the shaft was all the way open when it got run over, it actually looks a bit like a samurai sword. I even looked up how much it would cost to buy a sword holder as kind of a gag decoration.

    But I decided that since the lever still flips out, it was much more practical to use it as a back scratcher. It's a great back scratcher.

    The sword is the perfect hand weapon for the zombie apocalypse... wondering why those bozos in The Walking Dead have not figured this one out yet.

    That, and why they have not commandeered a few abandoned APCs.

    Tomonaga Ijiro: Founder of the Tatenokai; blind "hibakusha" and former gardener. After zombie outbreaks in Japan Tomonaga decided to leave for the wilderness to keep from being a shameful burden to others. However during an incident when a bear (which he thought was meant to kill him) alerted him to an approaching zombie, Tomonaga decided to live until he discovered why the Kami had spared him. For months he managed to survive against the increasing number of zombies he began to encounter armed only with his gardening shovel. When he ran into Kondo Tatsumi, Tatsumi updated Tomonaga on Japan's evacuation. Tomonaga decided to"cleanse the garden of Japan” of the undead “pests.” After the war, Tomonaga's Tatenokai (Shield Society; not the same Tatenokai that had tried to stage a coup in the 1970s) had proven so effective that it became an official branch of the Japanese Defense Force, and proudly maintains a non-firearms policy.


    Kondo Tatsumi: Second-in-command and co-founder of the Tatenokai. Tatsumi was an otaku who had spent the early months of the Great Panic online, feverishly gathering information as his way of escaping reality. One day Tatsumi awoke to find that his parents were missing, the power was out, and he couldn't connect to the internet. His subsequent mental breakdown was heard by several ghouls who then tried to get into his apartment. Tatsumi survived by creating a rope out of sheets and moving from one floor to another from the outside balconies. He eventually made his way into the apartment of an elderly (and now reanimated) neighbor and found a WWII officer's katana in an old foot locker, with which he managed to escape the city. He made his way into the forest where he had ran into Tomonaga, who revealed his plan to destroy all the ghouls. Although he thought Tomonaga was crazy for attempting such odds, he still decided to join the blind man. By the time of Max Brooks' novel, Tatsumi is a athletically-built and expeirenced warrior monk. Although he is still very skeptical of Tomonaga's shintoist beliefs, he has great respect for the man.

    That ^^^^ to me was the most exciting part of the story. Not that the rest of the book wasn't great, just that this part was fudgin' great! They destroyed zombies with just a gardening shovel and a sword! INSANE!!

    Just remember the 7 meter rule. A bladed weapon is deadlier than a firearm at 7 meters or less.

    Depending on the type of warfare and combat one was facing, a sword like the Indian talwar / scimitar might be preferable for slashing attacks as the curved blade is less likely to get hung up, the heavier tip also aids this weapon in things like decapitating one's enemies while retaining some penetrating / stabbing ability.

    The Gurkha kukri would be a fearsome example.
