Whilst there may be times and places where it is perfectly legally acceptable to swing a sword around and other such weapons, at many times in history weapons have either been limited to the nobility only (as in the Japan of the Tokugawa Shoguns) or outright banned for almost everybody (as in most Western countries today.) Even in more weapon-friendly fantasy worlds, there may be times and places where weapons are banned for most people (such as at the court of a noble, or in certain taverns whose owners really don't want sword fights in their establishment.) With this is mind, here are 30+ items that can be used as weapons.
Some times an unruly spell needs to be taught a lesson...

“So, my sisters.” I gazed out the clerestory window at the tableau in Court Square, and I made no doubt my gaze was as stony as were the rest of the Conclave. “I see what you see. Is there truly no doubt?”
“None,” said Mother Arathena, with a bitter hiss. “That jackal bitch has the true Sword. Captain Noran saw her hack through half the enemy cohort to reach the postern gate, and I know Noran to be a reliable man.” She swallowed hard, tearing her gaze away from the spectacle outside. “But – but how? How was It found, after so long?”
“Lady’s Grace, who cares? Dueled with dragons or bought it from a peddler, what boots it? The question is this: what do we do?” Arathena's mouth was set, at my query; she didn’t know. Neither did the others.
Neither did I.
Fedolf, the notorious headsman of Iddland, is known as much for his beheadings as for his operatic arias of doom. A tower of power, standing nearly seven feet tall, and weighing in at almost four hundred pounds, Fedolf strikes fear in all onlookers, especially when he dons his executioner's hood, and goes shirtless, wielding his gigantic double-bladed pole-axe, on his way to the headsman's block. He possesses a beautiful singing voice, and will often send off his charges into the next life, while belting out baritone dirges and antiquated arias, usually involving death, destiny, and duty, in heavy doses.
