Film & TV manufacturing and sale

There is a need for certain weapons to be available for the production of Film & Television. As one of only a handful of makers of impact weapons in the world, and the only one I know of in the UK, I can produce any of my items for productions, either as 'live' weapons or as 'prop' weapons.


Definitions -


'live' weapons - impact weapons made as originally designed, with weight, metal etc. that would have actually been used by police or criminals in their time 


'prop' weapons - impact weapons made to look as originally designed. They will be sae size, shape and the outside coverings will match the 'live', but there will be no significant weight or effectivness to them. i.e. in the case of blackjacks the lead weigh is substituted by a light weight wood, so it retains regitity and strength, but extremely unlikely to cause any injury if used.



Under UK law these are classed as offensive weapons, and are against the law to be owned privately. I produce these using the traditional 'sand casting' technique, this gives them the historical look that CNC machining does not.


Currently under the Offensive Weapons Act 2019, Part 4, Section 46, Paragraph 11B, I can produce these for


  1. the purposes of theatrical performances and of rehersals for such performances
  2. the production of films (as defined in Section 5B of the Copyright, Designs an Patents Act 1988)
  3. The production of television programmes (as defined in section 405(1) of the communications Act 2003)
