Firefighters and police been using these since 1948 to effect entry by ripping open doors walls windows cars etc.
Swords aren't very good weapons of war. Its kinda why armies tended to use spears, axes, pikes, clubs, maces etc. With the noted exception of the roman gladius which wasn't used as a sword but as a means of stabbing between shields as the enemy bodies were pressed against the shield wall.
Anything you carry better have a lot of uses. Zombies aren't impressed by swords the way peons are when the samurai lord lops a peasent's head off for burning the tea...
