Remember, you have to destroy the brain. If you're not strong enough to smash a zombie's head in, you'll need some finesse. They're collectors items now, but the crab knives from Carvel Hall Cutlery of Crisfield were the choice implement for generations of crab pickers on the Eastern Shore. The knives felt good in your hand, and they were great for gouging out the crab meat around the cartilage. Gross, get over it. Optionally, you could pack a pair of pewter crab mallets into your provisions. They won't have much effect on zombies, but you could trade them for gasoline.
