The Felon

zombie_tools_felon_bowie_1200

Product Description:

In 1832, on a sandbar in a Louisiana slough, Jim Bowie brought a knife to a gunfight. Fortunately, it wasn’t just any knife, and Jim wasn’t just any man. Although shot, stabbed and pistol whipped by his foes, Jim used this knife of his own design to gut one man and slash a chunk from the arm of another, and lived to tell the tale. Jim would finally meet his end, overwhelmed by hordes while defending the Alamo. But the knife, which the world would come to know as “the Bowie”, would live on, becoming America’s most famous contribution to edged combat.

The ZT Felon is our homage to the badassery of big Jim Bowie and the American knifemaking tradition. In typical ZT style, it’s a big fucking chunk of steel, 20-inches long with a 12-inch edge, the classic clip tip with false edge, and a handle big enough for a gorilla’s grip. At 2 pounds weight and a quarter-inch thick, the blade is heavy enough for a vicious slash, but long enough for classic cut-and-thrust swordplay. It even has a hammer point along the spine for working through a tough chunk of wood or the sinews of a unicorn. Be warned that wielding this knife will land you in the houscow in several Southern states (careful where you carry, Texans), but come the apocalypse, the Felon makes its own law.

Total Length 19.5in (.50m)   Blade/Handle Length 12.75in/6.5in (.32m/.17m)   Usable Grip Size 4.75in (.12m)
Steel Width 0.25in (6.4mm)  Weight 2lbs 2oz (.96kg)

Price $249.95US

Bone Machete 2012

bone_machete_1200

Product Description:

Now here’s some cleavage to make all the boys stand up and salute! Our latest nut-busting machete has a 17-inch cleaver edge with a weighted chisel tip that produces a chop that just won’t stop. The new handle design has a partial handguard that drops down from the full-tang blade, protecting your hand from all manner of ill-fortune you might find in the fray. The non-bevel portion of the blade bears the random patterns imbued by Loki during the heat-treating process (which gives our 5160 steel a Rockwell hardness of 53), and the entire blade is bathed in the purest evil (commonly known as ferric chloride acid, flavored with the pan drippings from the ZT Thrive Couch). Comes with sheath and leather-wrapped grip and the self-satisfaction of owning an entirely American-sourced piece of gear, made by Montana’s finest metal miscreants.

Total Length 25in (.64m)   Blade/Handle Length 17.5in/7.5in (.44m/.19m)   Usable Grip Size 4in (.1m)
Steel Width 0.204in (5.2mm)  Weight 2lbs 4oz (1.2kg)

Price $289.95US

Advanced Tactical Backpacks for Survival, Hunting and Hiking

Eberlestock Destroyer — Dry Earth Color

Eberlestock Destroyer — Dry Earth Color

In the Post-Apocalypse we will more likely be traveling by foot than in a motor vehicle. When your food supplies get low you will need to venture into the wilderness to hunt for game and gather edible plants and vegetation. But in order to bring your resources back to your camp site or safe house you will need a nice Big pack to carry everything in. Backpacks with internal frames that can support all the extra weight.

Here are a couple backpacks that would definitely get the job done and can also carry a bunch of your survival items. Some even have bow/rifle holding compartments. ^__^

 

1. ALPS OutdoorZ Commander Freighter Frame Plus Pack Bag, 5250 Cubic Inches

Product Description

When you get ALPS OutdoorZ Commander Pack Bag, you’re getting the Commander Freighter Frame PLUS a 5250 cubic inch Pack Bag. The Pack Bag is great for getting all your gear to your base camp. The Pack Bag includes a front pocket, spotting scope pocket, rifle holder, and two side accessory hinged pockets, in addition to the main compartment. Once you empty out your Pack Bag, it can be easily detached so the Commander can be used as a Freighter Frame also. The Commander Freighter Frame allows you to haul your meat from one place to the next. The Commander comes equipped with a unique lashing system to secure your meat. With as much weight as you’ll be carrying, padded waist belt and shoulder straps are a must. There are pockets for your flash light and knife, as well as a holder for your shooting stix on the lashing straps. With the Commander Pack Bag, you really get two products in one, a Pack Bag AND a Freighter Frame!

2. TETON Sports Fox 5200 Internal Frame Backpack

The Teton Fox 75+10L internal frame backpack is a great fit for the serious hiker. Comfort-wise, the Fox is outfitted with dual aluminum stays that adjust to the shape of your back, along with contoured shoulder, lumbar, and hip pads. In addition, the height of the shoulder straps is adjustable, helping the pack accommodate a wide range of torso lengths. The upshot is a comfortable, ergonomic pack that won’t put undue stress on your back and shoulders even after a full day of hiking.

On the interior, the 5,187-cubic-inch pack holds all your gear in its top-loading main compartment, expandable front section, and unique sleeping bag compartment. Meanwhile, hikers looking for an easy place to access their first-aid kits and mini flashlights will delight in the pair of hideaway side pockets. The design concludes with an attached rain fly that keeps your gear dry and is compatible with separately sold hydration systems.

3. Eberlestock Destroyer Pack. Dry Earth.

Product Description

We hereby enter the world of “conventional” packs with some unconventional backpacks. Please understand, they’re only unconventional in the sense that they’re nicer, and more fully detailed than other packs in this class. It seems that most manufacturers have taken so many shortcuts in the trend toward minimalism that they have forgotten what it’s like to live out of a backpack. In the tradition of our focus on practical field use, we’ve built the 69 liter V69 Destroyer to be extremely capable and comfortable load bearing systems. With very similar features, the main difference between the two is one of scale. Choose the slightly more compact V69 if you need smaller capacity and prefer to go as light as possible. Something else you’ll like about these packs: For their scale, they’re extremely light weight. We’ve carefully chosen new materials that give the optimum balance between high strength and light weight, and arranged them very cleverly, if we do say so ourselves. Every feature and detail has a purpose, and many of them have multiple purposes. The V-type packs are double-deckers… with both top loading and front loading features, it’s easy to find your gear wherever in the pack you have it stowed. It also has the great benefit of a full array of compression and lash straps. Each surface of the pack can be compressed and each set of straps can be used to quickly grapple something to the pack. So you have a very simple and versatile, and ultimately practical backpack. Includes a fitted rain cover that pulls out of a bottom pocket.

Product Features

  • 69 Liter capacity!
  • Front and Top Loading.
  • Hydration Compatable.
  • Lightweight, rugged construction with 420D ripstop nylon.
  • Fitted Raincover Included!
