The Walking Dead Ireland / Zombie Weapon Challenge 2016




About: I like to make fun projects and document it all for my channel BCDesign on YouTube!

Mike Fulton Of MFWoodshop challenged a group of us YouTube makers to make weapons of our choosing and upload the videos to our channels in celebration of The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere.

This is my idea of a great zombie survival weapon,it can also be used as a Halloween prop or hung on a wall as Halloween decor!!

My video is The Walking Dead Ireland.

I used a hurling stick (Irish Sport) to make my weapon, but you could use a hockey stick or a baseball bat with slight modification to how I made my weapon.

Things you will need,

  • Hurling/hockey Stick
  • a saw blade
  • one m10 bolt + nut
  • 2 mud guard washers
  • 2 hose clips of the proper size to fit your stick
  • a drill and 10mm drill bit
  • 17mm spanner & ratchet
  • a knife and scabbard
  • Bench grinder or grinder
  • Slot head screwdriver
  • A big mellon

Step 1: Drill Hole & Fit Bolt

  • Drill a 10mm hole near the base of your stick so that the blade will hang out over the end of the stick.
  • Positioning does not have to be precise.
  • I then put a washer on the bolt and screwed it through the hole.
  • When the bolt is through to the other side put on the saw blade over the bolt & add the second washer.
  • Tighten the bolt and nut using the 17mm spanner and ratchet.
  • I then put a small screw through the expansion hole in the blade to stop it from rotating while striking zombie heads.

Step 2: Grind the Bolt Into a Sharp Point

  • To penetrate the zombies head you will need to sharpen the bolt to a point.
  • Use a bench grinder, handheld grinder or files to do this.
  • Be careful and wear your protective equipment such as a faceshield.

Step 3: Add a Knife & Scabbard

  • Next add your scabbard to the stick using the 2 hose clips
  • You may need to give the clips some persuasion with a hammer to take the sticks shape.
  • Tighten the clips with the appropriate size screw driver.
  • Make sure the scabbard is held on tightly and will not move during vigorous zombie killing.
  • Make sure the knife is secure in the scabbard.

Step 4: Finished!

Set your melon up and test out your zombie killing weapon, it sure makes a mess but is a lot of Fun! If you like this prop weapon please don't forget to vote! Thank you!
