Having the Ability to modify or fix a broken weapon is an important skill to have. It just might save your life in the coming Zombie apocalypse!

In this video, I'll be showing off a few mods I've made.

Step 1: The Machete:

The handle to my machete broke the first day I bought it. (it was only $4)
Instead of driving back to return it, i decided to fix it. I simply wrapped the handle in premium leather lacing using a simple overlapping pattern. Now it's Better than new!

Step 2: The COLD STEEL Gun-stock War Club

You can learn more about the War Club here: http://www.coldsteel.com/Product/92PGS/GUNSTOCK_WAR_CLUB.aspx

I drilled a hole near the base and attached a leather lanyard. This way, I wont accidentally commit a life threatening fumble.
Second, I added black deerskin to the handle for added grip and support when I need it most. (crushing Zombie Skulls!)
Last, I made a custom leather sheath for the blade. I made it from strong Latigo leather, and hand stitched it around the edges, finishing it off with an easy-to-use-while-getting-mobbed-by-a-zombie-hoard Sam Browne Button.

If you want a sheath for your War Club, or need something similar, let me know.
I'd be happy to make one for you!

Nice I actually have the same machete and mine broke first time I used it and the metal was very soft and prone to chip and break so I hardened mine with a easy backyard forge and some oil, though I have yet to use it in Zombie Warfare it works great against shrubs and vines. LOL
