• Injection moulded weapons are on a case by case basis. There are lots of bad examples out there, however there are some really good ones too. Avoid any that are too hard when cold or have a discernable seem running along them which is sometimes prominent enough to slice. We would recommend reputable UK retailers as these tend to be constructed with our weather in mind.

 

• Melee one handed weapons have to be shorter than 42", small weapons must be smaller than 18" and steamtech melee can look any way you wish as long as it is save and passes weapons check and the weapon must conform to the requirements of size as per normal for regular melee weapons.
