This is for a class project. I'm researching/ looking for a good blade you would use in a zombie attack. I'm guessing a machete to the head would be the best, but I'm not a combat person. If a person were on drugs (unstoppable for the most part), how could he be stopped? If I had a shot gun, I can figure that one out. Zombie Apocalypse Survival | Checklist Go Is where I'll put this info. Thanks.

a full size gerber machette with a saw back, would be my choice of blade in this situation but again the closer you have to get to him the more dangerous he is to you and what if he take the weapon away from you? just shoot the guy if it comes down to it, if someone is going to die, whos it to be him or you?

I would use a bayonet. Attached to the end of a Mossberg M590A1 12 Gauge. Would meet the "all purpose" portion of your question anyway. ;-)

Probably shotgun. You can hunt small game (dove) up to big game (moose/polar bear) with it. It can fire small shot, slugs, buckshot, lead shot, steel shot, etc. You can get adjustable chokes for most shotgun barrels, so you can adjust the shot pattern.

However, you can't cut things with a shotgun, which you can do with a knife. If I had to choose between a knife/machete and a shotgun as the only tool I could have, I would choose the shotgun. You can always find a sharp rock to cut with, but you can't find another tool in nature to do what a shotgun can.

..If a person were on drugs (unstoppable for the most part), how could he be stopped?..
Blind him with a pepper spray? Are they legally on sale?
Alternatively a club might be a good idea to knock him out or at least make him stagger around dazed.
Knives would be messy because he might just keep on coming until he collapses from loss of blood which could take ages.
Of course, a gun would solve the problem easily, just blow the mofo's head off..:)

I have to say that a reliable shotgun would be the way to go. For defensive purposes, an edged weapon is going to require you to get a lot closer than you want to be to any threat.

As mentioned earlier..... shotgun can hunt bird, small game, large game and be a good home defense / self defense weapon just by changing the load.
