The ZT Mack Daddy-O is a massive chunk of quarter-inch steel that would make a mess of a traditional open field battle where its length and cutting power could be brought to bear by a warrior worthy of it. But not every warrior is Khal Drogo nor is every battle The Battle of Agincourt. For the combatant requiring more speed, less weight, or a more manageable reach while still enjoying the heft, durability and chopping power of ZT's burliest chunk of steel, the scientists at ZT Labs offer up the Reaver Cleaver. The width and height of the Reaver Cleaver's profile is exactly that of the Mack Daddy-O, it's just shorter, removing about a pound of weight, allowing the devastating dynamics of the Chinese warsword to be brought to bear in, say, the back room of a bombed out Qwik-E-Mart, or the cabin area of a Firefly-class spaceship, by a warrior of more typical size and strength.
The Reaver Cleaver is a Zombie Tool and thus is: 5160 steel, full-tang, heat-treated to a Rockwell of 55, sharpened, sheathed (black Kydex) and the shit.
