    Machete is the standard by which most who live by the blade adhere to. If you look anywhere ppl have to be serious woodsmen, they carry a parang, khurba or some other long and heavier knife like a machete. I carry a machete. Best thing after a sword is a long fighting knife, that's about what a machete is. Ancient chinese broadswords were based on machetes.

    Hi folks
    I have chosen the Ghurka Khukuri knife to take the place of a machete and survival knife.
    These have a heavier blade and more stable than a machette.
    This form of knife also gives a heafty wieght in a throwing situation and extends the reach in a fighting situation
    Comes with a verry solid shieth as well as two smaller knives for smaller more delicate work
    Picked a good quality one today for around the $ 50 mark

    For my other camp choice I chose a throwing type tomahawk
    Purchased for under $40 bucks

    Purchased both from www.reliks.com
    Hope this will help some one make a choice

    I like my Western Large Bowie knife. The actual cutting edge is 8 3/4" long.

    S&W offer a few in your price range. Check Cabela's. Their sales offer a few different brands.

    I prefer Benchmade but they are a little more expensive.

    I use the Woodsman's Pal.



    I think it will lob zombie heads as easily as it lobs off small branches. Haven't tested the zombie thing, yet.

    This is my baby, it's midway in size between a small multi-tool pocket knife (which i've got) and a large machete (which i plan to get).
    The advantage of a mid-size like this is that it'll frighten zombs more than a smaller knife would, and you can conceal it up your sleeve or wherever, but a large machete would be harder to conceal.
    It was only about 10 GB pounds (15 US dollars), The handle is solid, so you couldn't put a compass, fishing line and matches etc in there, I suppose that's why the price was low.
