Negan's Bat From the Walking Dead




Possibly the most infamous weapon in AMC's the Walking Dead. In the season 6 finalle Negan lined a lot of the characters up on their knees. Then he picked one and beat him to death with a similar bat he called Lucille.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:
Wooden baseball bat
Wire cutters
Needle nose pliers
Thick gloves
Barbed wire
3/4inch staple nails
Wood saw

Step 2: Saw

Use the wood saw to make a kinda deep groove in the top of the bat so that the barbed wire will stay in place when you wrap it.

Step 3: Bend the Wire

Bend the wire into two 90 degree angles with the space in between being the same length as the top of the bat. Make sure one end is only about 8 inches long while the other is about 15 feet.

Step 4: Hammer Time

Use the hammer and the staple nails to secure the wire.

Step 5: Bend It

Bend the short end down and secure it with a staple nail

Step 6: Clamp It

Use a vice grip to secure the long end of the barbed wire.

Step 7: Roll It

After securing the end of the wire in the vice you need to pull on the bat to get some tension on the wire then roll the wire quite tight and close together. Every turn or two you need to nail a staple in to the bat on top of the wire.

Step 8: Keep Rollin It

Keep rolling and staple - nailing until you get to your desired length.

Step 9: Twist It

Once you're done twist - staple - nailing, nail two more staple nails on either side of a barb to secure it.

Step 10: Cut It

Use the wire cutters to cut the wire just after the last barb. Then bend the end up with the needle nose pliers.

Step 11: That's Just About It

Now just beat the crap out of a watermelon.
