Zombiestrike Blade as it should've been

So with the all the noise about the 2014 Zombiestrike products being recycled rejected designs. There hasn't been much said about the Zombiestrike Blade. It doesn't look pseudo post-apoc like the Hammershot and the Sledgefire (neither do the rest of the blasters really). But, the design of the sword really bugged me. If there was a zombie apocalypse and you were to grab a blade weapon, it would not be a sword would it. And even if it was, a broad sword? No.

You'll need something lighter than a sword, but at the same time, with a blade long enough to take off an undead head quickly, but no so long that you can't sheathe it. So a knife right? But it has to be a big knife.

A MACHETE! Right? It would be a perfect blade weapon for any zombie apocalypse. So I made one... well I Photoshopped one into existence.

I took the blade design from 2 machetes and the handle from a third. I used a Hammershot handle and sculpted it into the right shape, then I made the blade myself and added what Photoshop calls "noise" to make it look more like foam. It's not perfect but, a machete makes more sense in a zombie apocalypse than a broad sword.

Doesn't it?


  1. You just blew my mind man, that is AWESOME. Super props!

  2. Many people choose their Nerf gun based solely on its looks! This however is not always the best idea! First of all, all Nerf guns look extremely cool with their slick designs and bright, eye-catching colors!
