I think everyone knows the basics of surviving a zombie apocalypse, how to kill a zombie, etc. What you might not know, however, is how to enjoy yourself in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Blade Play is a place for knives, but it’s also a place for fun, so here’s a list of gear that will help you have a good time as you simultaneously (and singlehandedly) save the world from the zombies.
Assuming you already have the essentials (ample food, water, weapons, ammo, etc.), try these items out to make your zombie apocalypse experience infinitely more enjoyable.
If you’re trapped inside, it’s a good idea to get some defense practice in so that you’re ready when it’s time to fight off a zombie. Set up a target in your house and try your hand at knife throwing (this may be the one time in your life that your mom/wife/roommate/whatever allows this, so take advantage of the situation!). Zombies will be foolish to mess with you after you’ve mastered the art of knife throwing. If knives aren’t really your style, how about a throwing axe?
Case Knives Hobo Pocket Knife
Let’s be honest—who’s going to take time to do the dishes in the middle of a zombie apocalypse? (In fact, who takes the time to do them before it hits?) You might not have the means to do dishes let alone use them during an apocalypse, and even if you did, you time is valuable during an apocalypse. Don’t waste it doing the dishes. With this Hobo pocket knife (Case gave it that name, not me), you can eat wherever you are, and the utensils can be cleaned in seconds.
Cold Steel Boomerang
Who says you have to fight zombies face to face? Use this boomerang to take out a zombie from your window, out of harm’s way. Then proceed to yell “muahahaha” at the zombies. But don’t get too crazy; remember to shut that window!
Lighter/ Steel and Striker
The ability to make fire will be a very valuable skill during the apocalypse. Steel and striker is always a good backup option, but it’s a great idea to have a lighter, too. How about one that reminds you of your happy place, like the one pictured above?
There’s bound to be down time during the apocalypse when you can’t leave your house or hiding place for whatever reason. Instead of dwelling on how bored you are, how about dedicating that energy to improving your mad butterfly skills? They might come in handy during the apocalypse, but when it ends, you’ll also be the coolest person you know.
