    Not sure what this is... My uncle pulled it out with a grin this weekend but seems like a good candidate

    If length is required, maybe this Yu Kurosaki 450mm Suji.

    With 240 Gyuto for size comparison.

    Something like an old 2 handed Betty cleaver, or I would fashion something like this in the shop... lf.jpeg

    I haven't prepared a knife but am finishing up a blowgun for Lunar New Year. Should be compatible with some brands of dart syringe in case we need remote antidote/vaccine administration.

    Great. So the zombies can pull the syringes out of their necks, now full of virus-containing body fluids, and inject them into the people they catch. I'll stick with knives :D

    This will work well up close, but have you thought about some kind of face protection from zombie juices ? DSC_4478.jpeg 20200128_155007.jpeg

    All of these sound good, but we need think about some blade-heavy paring knives by numbers for throwing, and perhaps a couple barrels full of metal shavings from your thinning sessions for some homemade explosives. For close combat when I get there, I'd rather invest my efforts first in some protection - closed helmet, leg padding, elbow long thick rubber gloves - and then I guess a solid utility knife for the lefty and a rugged meat cleaver for the righty would give me as much leverage as anything else one could choose from kitchen tools.

    Sorry to be the party pooper here. Lets stop fueling the panic hype of Coronavirus & keep our mob mentality in check, stop piling it on.

    “Dr O'Sullivan said that deaths related to the virus need to be compared to other illnesses, such as influenza - which kills around 1 million people a year - and issues like cholera, infectious diseases and malnutrition, which collectively lead to the death of more than five million children around the world each year.”

    We do not need to stop piling it on, but thank you for the suggestion. It is all in a light-hearted spirit.

    coronavirus is the new ebola!

    we are just taking our ethical and moral responsibility by preparing for the worst, should that day come.

    i have started a coronavirus apocalypse survival training program! i do intervals of watching old bear grylls episodes mixed with watching old "the walking dead" episodes.

    when i have watched 2 episodes i go out in nature for practical survival training. its raining outside and its quite cold so i limit my survival training to 10 minutes at a time, out on the lawn in my back yard. so far i have survived for over 40 minutes.

    there is an old saying here, almost as old as time itself:
    its better to have a deba taped to an umbrella and never need it than need it but not have it!

    For zombies I’ve had good results with these before. IMG_4541.jpg
    The random serration seems to confuse them. One of these in each hand and you’re well prepared to Cut some mushy zombie flesh.

    For those who by chance perhaps own the game, go see Plague: Evolved, and if you have access to levels developed by users, you'll find one named "Coronavirus", published in 2016 by myself (ModRQC). Not to brag or something but it's truly one of the best illness I played in this game, with an informative intro and coherent/well documented use of symptoms and other developments. Ok ok just wanted to let people know about it, fun to play and trendy you know! :D

    My stats incidentally went off the roof recently, from almost nothing to hundreds of subscribers, a couple of favorites, and good ratings. Wondering why... o_O:rolleyes:

    I prefer traditional Japanese single-bevel zombie slayers.

    So far, more than 2,200 people have died from this virus, and over 75,000 people have been infected. That is about three times the number of fatalities from the SARS outbreak in 2002/2003, and about ten times the number of infections. Something to think about…

    You are absolutely right. Actually I heard that the Chinese government is able to be hiding 1 millions bodies in Wuhan because the rest 10 million people living in the city don’t know how to use their smart phones to tell the rest of the world truth.

    And you know what? The WHO sent a team to Wuhan last month and they praised the efforts made by the Chinese government afterwards. They must be either blind or corrupt.

    I don’t trust the government but I don’t trust some pure speculation based on no fact either. Believe what you want to believe. I just happen to have a few friends and relatives in Wuhan that I’ve been talking with closely recently. What do I know?
