Now That's a Knife



And I'll tell you now, that a bowie knife that big is really too heavy to carry or wield one-handed. I have a Smithsonian Bowie made by Randall Knives, and I know whereof I speak.

If you're going to carry a blade for zombie killing, you're better off with a katana or a Chinese dadao war sword. Those at least can be wielded with two hands and get you some force behind the blow.

Personally, I've always liked the design of the kopis for close up hacking.
