On vacation in China, you foolishly spilled tea all over the Master of the Wutang Clan. Annoyed by all the tourists he sends his hopping vampire henchman after you. At nightfall you hide in a museum with many old weapons inside. Which one would you choose?

Dao - Big knife similar to a machete that can chop off heads in one blow

Jian - A pair of elegant swords that rely on speed

Spear - Long, flexible weapon gives the advantage of range

Dagger Axe - An ancient halberd designed to bring down enemy cavalry

Monk's Spade - A modified farm tool which could be useful for burying your opponent after you have dispatched him

Tonfa - The handles of a threshing machine with sharp blades attached

Whips - The ultimate in destructive power but very difficult to master

Meteor Hammer - A weighted ball on the end of a long rope, highly effective in tangling up an opponent

Make your choice quickly: the zombie is getting closer!

The first one..... as it is well known to kill a vampy...take of it's head. Couple this with the plan of lurking in the shadows on the rafters above..... will gain me the element of cover and concealement suprise and addtional force when i leap on the assassin.Wink

Alot of these weapons were demonstrated on Deadliest Warrior's   Shao Lin Monk verse Moari Warrior episode. After seeing the show, I would have to go with the Dao Sword.

The dagger axe would be a good choice. These could hack off the legs of multiple enemies in a single stroke. Once he's on his back you could finish him off with the spearpoint
