Low Tech Melee Weapons

Basic hand weapons are a common sight throughout the Imperium, and in many places it would be unthinkable to venture forth without at least one such weapon visible on your person. Depending on the planet’s level of technology—and the wealth of the user—these can range from simple metal swords to high-tech blades made of exotic materials.
