Q: Am I allowed to bring replica, metal and other hard weapons to the event?
A: In most cons in Norway, weapons that are replicated from real goods are not allowed. Weapons that are clearly bought from toy stores, on the other hand, can vary.
But in order to be on the safe side, it is recommended to send an e-mail with a picture of the object.
It is not allowed to go around with weapons that may conflict with: §9-1
of the Weapons Regulations.
It is prohibited to acquire, own or possess electric shock weapons, pepper spray and other self-defense agents with similar effect, butterfly knives, baton knives, stilett, fighting gloves, batons, nunchaku, throwing stars, blow pipes for shooting arrows or other objects, slingshots or other similarly dangerous objects and which appear to be products of violence. That is, most weapons can be perceived as threatening.
Inadvertent use of objects will result in immediate storage of said object which will be delivered at the end of the convention or when leaving the convention.
Plastic, foam, light wood, not sharp objects are generally allowed, subject to exceptions.
If you have any questions about specific items or props that are allowed,
