    Would you carry a sword or knife in SHTF scenario?

    I'm thinking of carrying both. One on my tactical vest hung upside down and a katana strapped over my back. Of course I'll be carrying my AR as well.

    If I could find an authentic Katana i would love to carry one. I have a reproduction samurai sword that is sharp as hell, but it's not a full tang and if it hit anything hard, I don't have much faith in it staying in one piece...
    Any reason is the perfect reason to prepare.

    I has a youtube! Check me out!

    I would personally carry a machete and I always have a knife on me.

    I would carry a Bowie with at least a 10" blade. Best of both worlds. :D

    I have a good buck fixed blade 3 1/2 inch hunting knife, and will be looking into making leafspring machete's due to the material being redialy available and the flexability plus the MULTI purpose capabilities for them and fairly easly concieled compared to a "sword"

    I keep a cheepy $1 special in my pocket, car, and sock at all times. If it hits the fan I'd rather have a few good weighted solid knives. I can hit a target dead center right now at about 25ft and I'm still considering which gun will be my first so for me it's gotta be a few good knives.
    I will fight until my last breath. I will bleed every drop.

    In the field, instructors always carried Kukri knives, they have a wonderful all purpose blade that can be used for anything from chopping wood upto about 4" thick to skinning and fine carving depending on what part of the blade you used. It is an excellent edition to any collection and at 14-16" it fist well in the "Kinves you can use for self-defense" lineup as well.

    A cane knife would be an excellent GP blade...
