some speculates that the end of world will see the undead walking among us and in the process, devouring us for snacks. though we are skeptical about this grim prospect but we guess it won’t hurt to be prepared either. for starter, you could grab yourself this $59.99 M48 Ranger Hawk Axe to kickstart your pre-apocalypse preparation. featuring a beautiful wide, unswept blade made out of precision cast stainless steel attached to a nylon reinforced handle with 30% fiberglass, wrapped in black nylon cord, it is both light weight and easy to lug around. cos’ slaying zombies can be quite a strength-draining chore and the last thing you want is to be burdened by unnecessary weight. on the bright side of things, you could use this axe for chopping down those intruding bushes during peace time, while not getting yourself tired out. oh, this pretty axe comes packaged with a stylish nylon snap button sheath with D-ring and a handy compass for those times where you need a little direction to your base camp. don’t sneer at the latter, cos’ by then, GPS might not even be functioning and you probably already thrown your iPhone at some random undead that crossed your path sometime ago.
