A two-foot-long 'Zombie killer' knife has been discovered in a bush by police who suspect gang members stashed it there.
The weapon, which has a 17-inch blade, is described on Amazon as a “Renegade Zombie Killer Machete” and is advertised as being frequently bought alongside an “Apocalypse Tactical Tomahawk” and a “Fiendish Zombie Killer Bowie Knife”.
PC Alex Ware found the knife on Wednesday while on a street sweep of the east London borough of Hackney, according to the Evening Standard.
Police believe the weapon may have been hidden by gang members and are testing it for fingerprints and DNA.
Twitter users were horrified at the find.
@GCampbellMPS Appalling that these are on sale. Only one reason that they are bought for. 😢— Cheshire Girl (@Dl95Ches) July 9, 2015

@GCampbellMPS that has literally made me feel sick looking at the weapon. Well done for getting that off the streets.— Kathie Jones (@K_M_B_J) July 9, 2015
