In case of a zombie invasion of course.

Mine is for scaring away rowdy teens from my street.  :)

Note: I'll take a pic of my watches later. I only have a few at home, rest are with a nephew.

You're in Malaysia? I've got some knives, daggers, Keris, swords from your part of the world. Great history of bladesmithing!

LOL, so we are watching 'The walking dead' the other night, and and I say to the mrs: "So if Zombies took over the world..."
At which point she stops we with: "No, I'm not going to tell you which of your swords I'd choose to fight Zombies"
Girls are no fun!

A good Machete is a tremendoucly effective multi purpose tool and weapon. You see a lot of old Sheffield and general military machetes that have been converted into ethnographic weapon types. Especially in Africa, you get some nice old ones rehilted with carved handles etc.
Even now they are often the 'sidearm' of choice for many.

I know the question was aimed at Atlantia, but I have the Gladius Machete by Gold steal.

The tip of that thing is actually evil. lol

I bought it for fun. I have their 24" latin machete as well. That's the one I bought for practical use. The Gladius was for fun.

Oh and I almost forgot I have the Cold Steal Trench Hawk.

I use the Trench Hawk the most for Bushcraft along with my M-tech survival knife.


This is the knife and the reason i bought it:

The next picture shows several Keris with another Keris holder, this one is 'Twalen'.

Wow, those look great :)

I've never been to Bali before, and this is the first time I've heard of the wedung.
