[quote:Anonymous Coward 9510086:MV8yMDEyOTE3XzMzODI2Mjk3XzNFRUREQUMx] For a close encounter tool, that is probably the easiest question of all time. Either a good field knife or a tomahawk. This is coming from someone who is actually well trained on tonfas, kamas, nunchakus, sai, bo staff, you get the picture. Whether in an urban emergency scenario or woodland survival scenario you're going to want the tool that can be doubled up to do other things such as build a shelter, start a fire, make other tools, etc. Also for the sake of combat, a knife has a better learning curve for effectiveness. Same with a tomahawk. Another thing to consider is getting around with that gear. Think about the food you will have to carry, water, sleeping bag or hammock, hygiene products, possible rifle and ammo. You need to consolidate it all as much as possible and in regards to a close range combat tool, you need something you can operate with even after having walked miles and you're tired and exhausted. If you choose to buy a knife, I have a soft spot for the kabars but there are a lot of great choices out there. I have a preference to the carbon steel because it stays sharper longer but you find what you can. Hope you find the right tool for your needs. [/quote]
Everyone can make suggestions. Now I know I'll get the "derp good luck getting that close to me when my ar-15 is pointed at ur head". Look if shit happened at points close encounters are inevitable at some point so make your suggestions, and why you like the weapons...I'll start out with 2.

That badboy is the ball headed war club, and Cold steel makes an awesome one for 40 bucks. What I like about it whatever it hits it completely obliterates. If you get the ball on target whatever the person was blocking with would be useless after a strike from it. There are vids on youtube of people using some on concrete blocks ect ect. If you watch those vids it looks very inefficient in that it takes 2 hands, and has a ridiculous wind up. Quite simply the people have no effing idea what they're doing it's easily used in one hand all you have to do is put a quick twirl to get the power momentum going then strike the target. Yes has a bit of delay, and takes some time to recover after a strike so you would need choose your strikes wisely. As long as you make contact though it's over.

That is a tonfa. Now what I like about it is it's flexibility you grip it with thumb up and it goes along the bottom side of your forearm. Now, because of it's design it's equally offensive and defensive how it lies along your forearm fits perfectly with your natural reaction to protect yourself with blocking with your forearm. It also allows for some interesting grips, and locks if one were so inclined but that's not really needed. Also the stub towards the top allows for quite a debilitating blow wherever it hits as, and on top of that the long end along with grip can allow for it to swing around for a baseball bat type strike which obviously very potent.
Personally I prefer blunt weapons in fight scenarios that are face to face. They may not have as high chance of instant kill, but if landing on whatever body part that part is pretty well done.
Now your turn GLPers, what you got for me?
