No offense, but I find it very hard to believe you have a true Katana. First, they haven't folded Katanas that many times in centuries. Second, just
to have one folded 1800 times which would be considered a true usable blade is reserved for the extremely wealthy and respected families. You may have
one folded 400 times which would be considered a working blade but again that is a lot more money than most people can afford. You could have a
ceremonial Katana folded 20 times as this is about the price range a teacher can afford for a passing student. You probably have a katana that is
folded 3 times so that it can carry the title of hand forged and authentic in the sales brochure. Or you have an antique that would be worth enough
money to move out of the city or township get out into the shire or knolls dig a home into a hill like they did in the day, fortify your doors and
build traps. If this isn't the case by all means keep the katana, having something is better than nothing and hey you get to find out just how strong
it is and you can verify I was wrong.
Other wise, I would suggest going to your local sporting goods and camping supplies and picking yourself up a couple of machetes. They are stronger,
hold an edge longer, and hack as well as cut. They are smaller and more maneuverable but much larger than your buck. And you have two for probably
less than you paid for the Katana, So when you whack one in the head and the machete gets stuck you have a back up.
Since Kevlar is for stopping rounds not blades and teeth don't waste your money on it, do it the old way. Go get yourself a bunch of wire hangers and
make chain mail. Chances are they are not shooting at you but they may have the instinct to grab a blunt or bladed weapon that the chain mail can
withstand, and I doubt they will have the strength to bite through the chain mail. Seriously, If you are thinking hand to hand arm yourself as
You should live in a hill with two doors, one reinforced door as a main entrance, and another reinforced one down a tunnel for escape if need be, but
a destruct trap set for the off chance they get in to keep them in(buried). If you are on the moors the water table should be high allowing for fresh
water. The food? Thats what the bow is for don't waste it on the zombies except in a last ditch move. The amount of arrows you have is finite and it
is nice to be able to pull it out and use it again. You can ask any bow hunter you will loose arrows. And for gods sake find a woman to rescue.
Edit to say: If you choose to stay in the city or township I guess the back of a rubbish truck would work for your overnights as they are reinforced
