The Felon

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

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

Kick-Ass Blades from ZombieTools.net

No matter how many bullets you try to stock up on for your guns. There will be no other weapon better than a good blade. A weapon that can defeat hordes of zombies or frenzied, starving humans desperate to kill for that last can of Spam in your pack. Because when the SH*T goes down we’re not talking about how will you survive for a couple of days but more like a couple of years and you will definitely run out of bullets by then if all you had was your trusty sidearm.

So I’d like to introduce you all to a group of zombie-apocalypse fanatics zombietools.net based out of Missoula, Montana.

Joey Arbour: Master-at-Arms
Chris Lombardi: Minister of Propaganda
Maxon McCarter: Chief of Surgery
Rob Lawlor: New Wave Ninja

Clay Cooper: (military adviser)
Wes Saint John: (artist)
Corey: (shop monkey)

Their motto:

We are swordsmen and metalsmiths who create blades, and soon, other gear, that will increase your odds of surviving a zombie apocalypse.

And they are mad serious. No joke. They make some kick-ass blades and I’m going to share with you their process on how they are made.

Using American made steel and aluminum this is their basic process:

  1. We cut the basic sword shape out of bars of quality 5160 spring steel. 5160 is one of the best steels to use for longer blades like ours as it is more durable and less prone to breakage than other steels (like stainless).
  2. For some of our blade models, we will then heat and hammer the blade into shape.
  3. We grind the blade to within 20% of its final edge, and give the blade its “distal taper,” the gradual reduction of blade material from its handle to its point, which reduces weight and gives it its balance.
  4. We then heat the blade to just above 1500 degrees and quench it in oil. This hardens the blade. We then put the blades in a tempering kiln to take them back up to around 450 degrees, which tempers it, or returns flexibility to the blade. The blade is then cleaned and polished.
  5. Next, we cut our basic handle shapes from T6 aluminum, we attach the handle with steel pins, and then sculpt the handle to its final shape using grinders and files.
  6. Finally, the blade is spattered with a beeswax/tar concoction and painted with ferric chloride acid which etches a pattern into the blade.

You can order blades from them at their website zombietools.net. They give an estimated time of about 4-5 weeks to build your blade and also do custom work upon request.

Now check out some of these kick-ass pics. ^__^
