as i don't want to hijack another thread in someone elses game, i just wanted to make sure folks understood for this game and any of our games

NO REAL BAYONETS / sharp pointy KNIVES / Sword etc that are fitted to webbing at all. Not even strapped up

Plenty of rubber / plastic ones etc out there

Cheers :)

Does this include British Army Jack Knives?










I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

changed it slightly :)

I just don't want any incident with some 1 getting stabbed thinking its not real etc , we have heard of incidents both modern and ww2 where this has nearly happened, as all of these things can be replaced with a plastic/rubber/larp version etc

if i am correct in what you are asking , its more like a pocket knife ? or has google failed me lol .

Yes, they're pocket knives which you have a bit of difficulty to fold out - if someone snatches one up, and manages to actually fold out the thing by holding onto the cold metal blade, then by then they should damn well know it's real.
They're kept on a short lanyard around a Tommy's waist, and so have to be taken off the torso by unlooping the lanyard from around the owners body before they can be used with any ease - not something you can do without it being very obvious to the owner wearing it.

i think what is to be avoided is a repeat of an incident a little while ago where somebody pulled out the bayonet of an opposing player expecting to use it for a knife kill ,he was expecting a rubber knife and it was real ......... if you have a pocket knife(folding Swiss army type knife) it's unlikely that anybody could or would pick you'r pocket in the hope of finding a rubber knife for a knife kill , i know i carry a Swiss army knife (i was in the scout's and feel odd without it) all the time but i'd hardly attempt to attach it to my rifle as a bayonet but someone might be tempted to fit a real bayonet for effect and with no intention of using it but that would be a huge health and safety issue ,it might be a nice item to own but i think there's no need to carry one on the field even if it's in its scabbard , Shoot N Scoot do a great range of rubber bayonet's that are very good quality ,perfect for LARP or as a scabbard filler .

yes to both , i don't see any 1 fondling you up and pulling it out :ghey: so thats fine :)

and that is one of the incidents there is also a modern 1 that more or less went the same way

i trust ww2 players over any , but i don't want it all ruined for everyone from something silly happening from something that could be still carried but a safe version

I am unfamiliar with historic knives and do not know about the "Tommy Jack knife" but will clarify our position:

If the knife you wish to carry, cannot be carried in public then it must not be carried on site at Fireball or any games that we are responsible for. It should not even be brought onto site. It does not matter if it is to be folded away or hidden in your boot.

The British army jack / clasp knife is a pen knife with a 2 inch blade, a poorly designed can opener and a marlin spike(AKA: "Thing for taking stones out of 'orses 'ooves") Basically like a Swiss army knife but less useful.

If the knife you wish to carry, cannot be carried in public .....

It can be.

Sorted then.

(We had an incident on site a few years ago. Not in game, but on site. Ambulance and boys in blue involved. Player not badly injured. But now a complete 'no no' on blades being carried in the field)
