Alright zombie thrivalists, here’s a great knife for field use and for slaying Zs. It’s the Glock 78 Field Knife, by the same guys who brought you one of the most popular handguns in the world.
In case you couldn’t tell, we’re a knifey bunch of bastards who love our edged weapons. I’m also a fan of Glock pistols. Great, solid manufacturing. So I wasn’t disappointed to get my hands on this solidly built blade. At 6.5″ blade length, it’s enough to get to a zombie brain-stem through the ocular cavity. It’s thin design and clip-point make it a great stabbing weapon.
The polymer handle and tool steel blade are darned near indestructible.
The one drawback we found is that the sheath is a bit too secure for a combat weapon. It makes the knife harder to draw than it should be. The sheath is also designed to attach solidly to the belt, but not really designed to strap on to a pack or leg or whatever. This is a pretty minor drawback as, overall, we love this knife.
It feels good in the hand and can easily be put to task for camp and survival duties.
The handle is hollow but plugged. Remove the plug and you can attach to a shaft (hee hee) and you got yourself a spear.

We here at the ZPN are fond of our edged weapons. When the ZSHTF, blades don’t run out of ammo, jam or malfunction. Larger edged tools, like swords and machetes are great for standoff distance. However, everything has a trade off.
For this particular de-zombifier here’s what we liked and what we didn’t like so much:
