Ok, we all know that when the dead walk the earth you need firepower and lots of it but what about those instances when you're out of ammo or don't want to bring the herd down on you by firing a shot?
That's where the Zombie Blade comes into it's own. IMO there are a couple of things to consider when slicing and dicing the undead.
1. Cross contamination.
2. Physical exertion.
For #1 you want to deactivate the zombie as cleanly as possible to avoid splatter from their blood. For that you need a good clean chop to either remove the head or trash the brain.
For #2 you don't want to find yourself fighting 20 walkers with a 10lb broadsword. You'll run out of steam swinging the thing and recovery from either a missed stroke of pulling that bad boy out of a skull will wear you out way too quickly.
My personal choices would be a good size, 18" or so Kukri. Good chopping, natural leverage in the swing and you get a lot of return for the energy expended.
Another choice might be a spear. Stabbing takes less effort then swinging and you don't need a lot of room to the side for a swing. Straight ahead thrusts to the ear canal, eye socket or base of the brain are all viable targets. Plus with the spear you can keep those skull munchers at a distance.
For a spear I kind of like the Cold Steel Boar Spear
For a Kukri I'd opt for an HI Gelbu Special
So what are you guys and gals gonna use?
