Walking Dead Knife Use

Postby Bob » Thu May 08, 2014 5:41 am

On the Walking dead, more and more they are taking Zombies out with a knife or other sharp implement.
I noticed that from the angle they use often it seems they are going for the eyes, but I see them go for other spots too.
Have you noticed any relationship between the chosen impact point and the condition of the walker?

I haven't noticed any correlation.
I think there choice of target area is strictly for cinematic purposes...what looks best on camera?

I like the blade through the top of the skull.

I understand their use of knives vs spikes but would you want to cut your meat with a knife you put down a Zombie with?

Hell no. An ice pick would do the job.

I haven't watched it since about half way through Season Three, but I think the best place to kill a zombie would be the side of the head right behind the eye. Just seems weaker and thinner to me. Possibly the eyes, but I'm not sure I'd want to put my hand that close to their mouth. Definitely not the forehead, as that always struck me as probably the thickest section of bone you have in your body.
Never hit first. Always hit back.

The only thing worse than a zombie trying to eat you, is a zombie trying to eat you while it is on fire.

I'm surprised the knives don't get stuck in the zed skulls :?
Once more into the fray,
Into the last good fight I'll ever know,
Live and die on this day,
Live and die on this day.
