METAL SWORD RULES
Hey guys,
I'm going to go to MCM London in May as Hector Barbossa.
Do you guys know the rules on swords? Metal ones?
I've seen people selling them there, but I'm not sure if the law, or the rules of the Expo forbid the wearing/drawing of metal swords.
The sword is blunt, and wouldn't cut you if you touched it.
Here's an image of it:

Is it illegal?
Is it allowed?

Thanks

Thank you so much! This helped a BUNCH!
I shall be sticking to plastic.
Thank God I can use my crutch still.
I shall have to email MCM to ask about the use of replica, non-toy versions of a flintlock pistol that will be carried under a belt.

Hey, metal swords aren't allowed. They are sold at Expo under the proviso that you don't open or carry them around. The main reason is from a distance how would someone know if it was blunt or sharp.

A flint lock pistol probably won't be allowed as it's not made as a toy if it is a replica, and they need blaze tips etc. (orange ends) In May people were getting airsoft guns taken off them and I'd imagine they'll be just as strict this time around but there's no harm in emailing them.

I just emailed them.
Hopefully I get a response this time round,
the flintlock pistol cannot be fired at all, it was built as a replica and the barrel is sealed half way down.
They are stage props.
You can attach caps to the cock(ones that make a bang), as I found out, does anybody know if you can bring caps?
